Default $125 retard mistake

Yeah...so I'm a moron. Yesterday when I finally get the exhaust welded on two of the wires inside the secondary 02 touched and blew the gauge cluster fuse. Well, I thought..."oh not a big deal, get a new fuse tomorrow during my break or something..." Yeah what a mistake! Today was the first day I drove the car more than 2 miles(my 35 mile commute to the next town over). Right as I enter town the car died when I rolled down the windows...So my buddy jumped me...that lasted for about 2 seconds then it died again...and so on. I thought it must be the battery or alternator so battery first. Spent 125 on an intercrap battery and the battery shop proceeded to test the alternator while they were there. Well, it wasn't charging. ****! Thought it was the alternator. I saw they had some fuses and replaced the blown one from the day before...yeah...that immediately jumped the volts from 10 to damn near 15. ******* bullshit man. I know I needed a new battery anyways but this couldn't be the worst possible time. ****!
