It's much more complicated to get shit like that done when you can't just call a friend, and have em take you to Walmart to get a new battery. I called around to see if any mechanics/roadside folks would come out and install the battery with purchase, but the best deal I got was PepBoys said they'd tow it for free if I got service done on it. Hopefully that will work out, although I'm not sure what the catch on that is. I probably should have asked what the minimum service amount was for that.
On the plus side, I have a book handy that I've been waiting to read, so it won't be a total loss of the day.
