The National Transportation Safety Board has said it is not any one thing that usually causes a plane to crash. But it is a series of "cascading events" that leads to most airline tragedy. This is what they are talking about...
-Had to get up early (5am) to be at work early (6am)
-Found the battery in my car was dead
-Tried to jump it with the van
-The van ran out of gas
-Thought I would swap batteries and go get some gas to try the jump again.
-The batteries are different and wouldn't swap
-Walked to gas station for gas
-Van still would not start after putting in some gas.
-Had to open the very loud garage door, right under the kids room, so I could roll the van off our steep driveway into the flat garage.
-Drove the van to work
-Left work a few hours later
-Unwillingly spent $60 bucks on a battery
-Replaced battery in my car (the original problem!)
-Drove the car back to work because Debra needed the van!
That is the way to crash a day!
