So, my battery is a joke.

this battery i have in the jeep dies if u leave anything on for more than 10 mins, so ive been stranded all day here, 3 different cars have attempted to jump it with no luck

i assume my battery is just totally shot and worn out

and yeah yeah i know, Optima Red Top. already in the plans, but can i basically just kiss this one goodbye at this point? so annoying


Though I wheel through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil: For thou lockers are with me;
Thy lift and thy tires, they comfort me.
Thou preparest a spotter before me in the presence of mine obstacles;
