Car Trouble

So I'm not much of a car person, and yesterday afternoon, as I turn on the car, the red oil pressure light goes on. I turn off the car, let it sit five minutes, and check the oil, something that I will admit I'm not very good at. (I know, I'm pathetic, but remember I grew up with subways.) Well, the dipstick says the oil is fine, but the light still goes on, so I call AAA and discover to my surprise that with a Plus membership they'll tow me 100 miles for free. (I got the Plus membership at the recommendation of my in-laws.) So a very nice guy named Mark shows up within the hour and tows me to the Elias Audy in Brookline per Nomi's suggestion. I leave it at Audy, and after shabbat ends, I play the message telling me that it was the oil pressure switch, easily replaced. And I am relieved.
