So your car is running on empty, your wallet is empty. What to do? Call a friend to help you out? Hope for a downhill run to get you home where you can regroup, collect all the random change, look through coat pockets for forgotten fun coupons, enough to tide you over until things come good? Leave the car on the side of the road, let it burn someone else's money?
Running on emotional empty is the time to call a friend, let someone help. If there is no one around you might have to just make it home, hope some good news turns up. Sometimes it just makes sense to ditch whatever is draining your heart, leave it by the side of the road, walk away.
Some cars are worth less than a full tank of gas anyway.
