Sheri has this great job.  She gets to go shopping professionally.  The major hitch is that right now she is stuck in the parking lot of a large national chain store waiting for a tow truck to come transport her SUV to a repair shop down the road.  Just as she got back on the road after a major shopping spree at the local hardware store her car started overheating and the steering seemed to give out.  Frantically calling her boss she was assured it was okay, as long as she got back to the venue before the end of the day.  Then trying to find a repair shop open on a holiday weekend was another trip. Thank goodness for semi smart phones with GPS.

“Katie,  the tow truck will take an hour to get here, but the auto repair shop is just down the road. I am so embarrassed that this happened when you need all this stuff as soon as possible,” she said to her boss on the phone.

“It will be okay, at least you found someone open on a Saturday. Will they have the truck fixed today?” Katie asked.

“Well they said it should be, but it really depends on what is wrong.”

“Call when you know something.”

“I will, I still can’t believe I am in the only National chain store that doesn’t have an auto repair bay.” Sheri said exasperated.

“You know things happen for a reason, and the reason hasn’t presented itself to you yet,” replied Katie sagely

“Yea, you are right.  I will let you go I know you are busy with the venue.”

They hung up and Sheri continued waiting for the t0w truck.  Eventually he arrived
