Angry Cobalt Will Not Start!!

I drove to work and everything was gravy,had to leave work to go to the bank and it wouldn't turn over. I have all the dash lights on like usual but when I go to start it......nothing,not even a click. My stereo isn't turning on either....if that helps.
1)battery good
2)fuses good,even the big bastard in the trunk.

it does make small click that comes from behind the dash but I think that's normal.
So now I'm stuck at work but scheduled a tow from Verizon at 7. If someone can give me something to go on when I get home tonight that would be great.

Did you check the 2 BCM fuses in the underhood fuse block. 30 and 40 amp square fuses at the back. If these burn while driving engine won't die but if you stop your car it won't start-up again because one of these fuses supplies crank relay.

What about your boost post? Is it tight? Any corrosion at the base where the two lugs attach?
