blessing: the car was out of gas
curse: the car was out of gas
blessing: obviously, a very easy fix
curse: the first thing I did when the car stopped, was check the mileage, and we should have had 60 more miles worth of gas.
blessing: the car was just out of gas
curse: we have to pay the auto repair shop, and the tow truck company, to tell us that our car was out of gas.
blessing: paying for a company to tell you that you are out of gas, is way cheaper than being told you need a new transmission
curse: totally embarrassing, even though I checked the gas right when the car stopped
blessing: I will have a car again!
