we left the school and went into town to do some shopping. We got into the car after shopping and the car was difficult to start and keep running. It took her a few times to get it started, and each time she got it running the car shook and died. She would get it started and try to rev the engine but it did not sound good at all. It was stuttering, and then it would die.
She eventually would get it started and tried to back out of her spot. She backed out, put it in drive, and it died in the middle of the parking lot.
She went into a full panic and did an extended crank while frantically pumping the gas pedal...this time the car just cranked with no signs of starting. No one could get around us. She was trying over and over to get it started.
She got it started but it was still shaking, and it stalled again when she came to a stop sign. Again it took her a few tries to start it up again, and once she put it in drive it stalled on her. She was getting pretty mad now and she was pumping the gas pedal very quickly, some times holding it to the floor for extended time and then going back to “full leg” pumping.
She wound up draining her battery at the stop sign we had to get the car towed.
Looking back I wondered if my flooding her car at the school caused the problem, but the car ran fine from the school to the store so I never really figured that out. If anyone has any thoughts or insight it would be appreciated.

 If the drive from school was a short one and the engine didn't really have sustained high rpms for any length of time then the cylinders wouldn't have had a chance to fully burn off all the extra gas pumped into them, the plugs were probably fouled to some extent and the  carb would have potentially had carbon deposits... so it ran ok until it was turned off again but then these issues could cause the hard starting, stalling and eventually no start issues that she had at the store. The service station probably removed the plugs and either replaced or cleaned them up, blew out the carb and potentially adjusted it and got it back where it should be.

Great story! What car was this and could you mention how hard did she rev in that different setting (in approx rpm), :
1) When got it occasionally started before backing out of the parking lot
2) When got it started after backing out and being stalled at parking area.
3) When got it started at stop sign

Would she rev it by holding the pedal at a firm rpm or rev by pumping the pedal?
