the best $3 you can spend a month....

Roadside Assistance.
thru your PHONE, no kidding.

unsolicited enthusiastic support ahead.....
kim and i have a lot in common (style of shooting; life experiences; voting record; neighborhood; kid's ages....and the list goes on and on) and we also share, in the words of Jen Eckart (half of our website-creation team), the "same disease" ~ the where are my keys?..., did i hand you my cell phone?..., hmmmmm, did i drop that in the mail?.... type of (endearing?) absent-mindedness.

Here's the defense (though weak perhaps) ~ we're arguably either so (on one side of the spectrum) In The Moment or the alternate: thinking Big Idea! Thoughts that little daily near-automatic necessities (i.e. have keys in hand or purse or camera bag BEFORE locking car door; have stamp on letter BEFORE dropping in city mailbox) kind of go by the wayside....or in this case, the ROADside...

ah, the Roadside! but really it's even driveway-side (or a church parking lot) whether it's flat tire, dead battery, needing gas or the dreaded have-locked-keys-in-the-car (again) all it takes is a #HELP phone call on the cell phone....
now as far as i know, this is only available thru AT&T and you have to sign up first (though the first few months may be free)
What I know for sure: the total cost to you is $3 a month. Want to hear the best part?; as long as you're with your phone it covers YOU, and thus WHATEVER CAR YOU happen to be IN or near....
so, we were together, you were driving and he car got a flat tire; or we found ourselves locked at of your car; I could dial #HELP and yep, help is on the way....at no additional charge to either of us.

anyone who's ever locked keys in their car knows this:
a single service call is likely to cost more than the amount you'd spend in a full year with this program.

Perhaps you've already guessed, but I'm waiting for roadside asst to come them RIGHT NOW as it seems, cars somehow don't appreciate? having headlights left on for very many hours when parked just outside....
aah well, live + learn??

and that's your helpful SilverBox tip-for-the-day; CALL 1.877.263.2600 to sign up unless of course you don't have AT&T...then...hmm;
a) switch coverage;
b) get iPhone;
c) call the above....or something like that ;)
