He was professional and courteous but I have to jump my car off every time I want to go somewhere. The lights and everything comes on fine so I think something from the battery may not be connected to the starter properly. I say this because a friend had a similar problem. Now I have to call again. Thankfully I am off but its a Sunday so I don't know if I will be able to get anyone.

Before replacing the pump, first be sure that filters, fuel pickups, fuel pump relays, and electrical connectors are in good working order. A clogged fuel filter, for instance, can restrict flow and cause some of the same symptoms.
Your engine needs gas to run. The gas, however, is stored in the gas tank, not in the engine. When the engine needs more fuel, the fuel pump is responsible for pumping the gas from the tank to the engine, where it is used to power the vehicle. As the fuel pump deteriorates, it will be less and less efficient at pumping gas to the engine, and your vehicle will have a harder time running. When the fuel pump completely dies, it will be unable to pump gas to your engine, and your car won’t run.
