Another fun-filled day of stress

So yesterday, on my way back from the grocery store, my car broke down on the New York State Thruway. I wasn't too worried because I have AAA. I called them up and they said they would have a tow truck sent to me within 30 minutes. Long story short, 3 HOURS LATER, the tow truck finally arrived. Their excuse was that the first truck they sent broke down so they had to send another. Just my luck. And if their truck broke down wouldn't it be common courtesy to call me and let me know this information? It's not like they were only 10 minutes late. They were 2 and a half hours late! What angered me the most was that I had purchased 3 tubs of ice cream at the grocery store for a new recipe I was going to try out and they were sitting in my trunk on this hot day for 3 hours. You can probably guess what happened there.
