Oops! The in-laws are staying with you over the holiday and you wake up Christmas morning realizing your guests like half-and-half in their coffee, and you're out. Or you find you ran out of batteries for the remote control — no one will be happy with that one. Where can you go if a last-minute surprise pops up?
