Check your battery line. Looks like a leakage which drains the cell's juice very slowly. Do it ASAP. Remember evert time you use self starter, it takes 14 to 15 amp of current. Push start the car (not using self that is) and take to a mechanic.

I'm not saying battery leakage but line leakage. Taking self but not starting means your ignition system is not getting the current. As you said car started after few selfs yesterday..I would like to believe that there's no major problem but small leakage in the line some where.

Chech the Coil line/distributor line. Doesn't have to be open wire but a small opening from insulation cover which is creating a short some where.
Off topic though, rats create these kinda problems often.

yeah that is what i first thought. RATS! seems like they get a kick out of the electric shock from the battery.

Yes, i had the same problem with my hyundai accent today. Was not starting even after 5-6 tries, but did so later. Will need to check if the problem with the wiring or maybe the rats! hopefully the former.
