For my last birthday, our Grandparents gave me a premium subscription to AAA.
They said they knew how old our car was and they wanted me to be protected if anything happened.
I was sure our baby would never let me down, however I was still grateful for such a generous gift. My best friend and I were planning a summer season trip to the beach. The two of us had never been so far away from the lake house without our parents. The two of us were almost to the beach when our girlfriend told me she thought the car was getting warm. I tried to turn up the air conditioning, however nothing happened. I didn’t have air conditioning or an actual fan. It seemed as if everything that would help to cool the car off had quit running. The two of us had the windows open, however this far south, open windows were only making it warmer. I knew I couldn’t afford to have the air conditioning unit repaired with my own money. The two of us barely had enough money for our getaway. My girlfriend reminded me that my Grandparents had bought me the AAA membership. I called the number on the AAA key fob they gave me. Not only did I end up with a new heating and air conditioning unit, however I also had a new radiator installed, and it only cost me about fifty dollars. I consistently said Grandma and Grandpa gave the best gifts. Without our AAA credit card I didn’t know I had, and the AAA membership, it would have cost me so much more. An heating and air conditioning system and radiator for our car could have cost as much as a single thousand dollars.
