Holy Shitballs


Woke up, showered, had coffee and some toast. Went out to start the car and nothing but clicks - fuck - dead battery. No problem. Head to the corner store and withdraw $20 for transit money. I boost down to the C-train station where I realize the downtown core is locked down due to track maintenance. I get off at Earlton station and boost to my customer site. I dont have my pass so I have to call security. My customer informs me they are closed. (The receptionist told me they were open last week, for fucks sake!).

I boost back to try and catch the bus and run out of power at the DT hospital. I call a taxi cab and get a cab ride home. I wait an hour for the board to charge and head to Canadian tire to buy an Eliminator battery ($150!).

Believe it or not, I managed to heft this battery while on the boosted board and make it home without injury to myself or the battery. I quickly swap the battery, head back to Canadian tire to bring back the old one ($20 refund for bringing the battery back for recycling).

Pretty damn tired. Thank goodness I had the boosted board. Peace out!
