The feeling is apparent here; what do we feel when out cars will not start. We depend on them. I see the step by step and process of hoping and even begging for your vehicle to do what is asked. Funny, of course, as an inanimate object is deaf to any pleas.
I enjoyed this layering of inner thoughts regarding the hopes placed on transportation. A fun one!

ah hahaha I thought someone was breaking your heart for a moment there. Oh boy I have done this a few times with my first car. Always would feel like a heart break when I thought I had to walk home.

It took me a few reads to get this and then I understood. Very good. I like it when you are led down a path and then you realise you've been 'had'.
Well done for such a tastly little gem!.

Oh man I've felt that panic in the dead of winter after I left my lights on all night. You conveyed the panic perfectly.
