My friends plus I were on our way to the apartment from a concert plus the car broke down on the side of the road.
The people I was with and I walked various miles to the nearest town so all of us could call someone for help! Unluckily, not a single one could come to help us until the next afternoon. We decided to look for a place to stay overnight. There was a rundown plus aged hotel 2 blocks from the payphone, so we started walking. The hotel was cheaply priced, plus all of us were both happy about that because all of us did not have much money in our pocket. Unluckily, the hotel was also booked up for the night. The vacancy sign was flashing, however he assured me that every room was filled for the night,except for a room with no AC. The attendant said he couldn’t rent the room for full price because the A/C wasn’t working! If we wanted to sleep in that room, he would rent it to us for $20. No one wanted to sleep in the car as this would mean walking back several miles in the dark again. Luke and I did not care if the room had A/C or not, especially after all of us spent the last various hours walking in the dark. We took the room and slept quite well that night, despite the lack of cool air in the room. This would not have happened if we slept in the car. We were thankful to get the room without A/C for only $20. The nightly rate would have been $59.00 plus taxes.
