saturday morning and the car will not start

saturday morning I woke up and started to drag my gear out to the car
when I got to the Element I pushed the unlock button
nothing... not an audible click... not a beep of the horn... nothing
I figured that the watch battery in the keychain was dead
so I opened the doors old school... with the actual key

when I went to start the car I got nothing
nothing... not the sound of the ignition... not the sound of the sound of the starter... not even a dim light on the dash
nothing

if I were to be on time to meet at the parking lot at Rosaryville I needed to be rolling on the road then and there
the car was packed but not ready to roll
I grabbed my cell and called Cargo Mike and Kent to let them know I would be 15 minutes behind schedule
just a short set back... the battery needs a jump
considered going ghetto style and rolling things down the hill for the compression start
but knew that I had jumpers and access to lisa's car... so I went legit

in the days prior I had some emails back and forth with jeff peel
jeff was leaning on me pretty hard
apparently he was pretty upset about my car having one wheel a few inches onto the bike lane
jeff had reprimanded me on this before
I just knew that jeff peel had drained my battery in an effort to teach me a lesson
that is just jeff's style

I grabbed lisa's keys... pulled her car next to mine... jumped my car
yes... jeff peel was a suspect... everyone was a suspect... my boys... public enemy number one

my two boys were some of my top suspects
after some slight detective work I recalled that the light by the rear hatch had been on the other day when I was driving around before my late entry to work
apparently when I loaded up with all those boxes I inadvertently turned on the roof lamp
leaving that light on overnight
thus the dead battery
