My role for the day was as a corporate partner liaison and extra set of hands. I was asked to grab the catering from Outback early in the day, for example.
That is, until I couldn't get to Port Charlotte.
When I got just over the Sunshine Skyway headed south, my car started acting erratically and I pulled over just as I275-S merges onto I75-S in Palmetto. Both AAA and the tow truck driver agreed: sounded like my alternator had gone.
