My wifey and I were on our way back to our beach home from an event a single night, when our car started to smoke and sputter; it was a long time before cell phones were invented…

Every one of us was stranded in the middle of nowhere and I had to walk about numerous miles to get to the closest pay phone. I called a tow service, but they would only take us to the closest town.

Every one of us was still about fifty miles away from our beach home when the car broke down. Every one of us was forced to spend the night in an entirely terrible hotel, but the room odored akin to cigarettes and vomit. The carpet had stains all over the floor and the water glasses were dirty. I didn’t want to stay overnight in the seedy hotel, but it was the only locale in the whole town. It was right across the street from the car mechanic, so I could keep an eye on my car all night. At least the A/C in the hotel worked well. It looked a lot newer than the rest of the items in the hotel room. The A/C was ice frigid and the vents looked clean. The tv and the bed were bolted to the floor love it would be straight-forward to sneak out of the room with a queen size bed in your suitcase… My wife slept for a couple of hours with the A/C running on high. I watched the car in the lot across the street, but when she woke up, I slept for a couple of hours, then both of us managed to get a few hours of rest and the mechanic fixed the car the next morning.
