He told me that it sounded like a major problem and suggested that we use the emergency funds to call a mechanic.
On the last day of our senior Year, my friends and I planned to leave for a 2-week trip across the country. Each of us were excited for our own reasons. I wanted to see some historic and national landmarks that were on my bucket list. My best friend James wanted to see the canyon, and Dylan just wanted to get out of the house for two weeks. We saved some money for gas, tolls, food, and rooms. My mom gave me some money for graduation, and I also opened a credit card in my name. I knew we would have plenty of money and some backup plans in the case of an emergency. I didn’t expect that emergency to occur on the same date that we left. We were only in the car for three hours, before the air conditioner stopped working. I knew it was a huge problem, because the air conditioner stopped working and the temperature shot right up. I had to pull off the road into a deserted gas station. I called my dad and asked for some advice. He told me that it sounded like a major problem and suggested that we use the emergency funds to call a mechanic. I used the roadside assistance to get us towed to the nearest car dealership. After that, we spent most of the day sitting in the shop. They fixed the air-conditioner, but not before we lost 5 hours of daytime driving hours. We decided to wait and leave in the morning, after all three of us had a good night of rest.
