[DML] Dead fuel pump?

Earlier today I was at the drive thru at the bank, and since the 
teller was taking her time with the other car ahead of me I decided 
to shut down instead of wasting the gas. well a couple minutes 
passed and the it came time for me to start up and move up. only 
problem is, was that the car was cranking and not starting. 

Confused I pushed the car into a parking spot, and had a family 
member pick me up and take me home. Thinking it could be a hot start 
problem I decided id return later on and give it a try, also when I 
left I took my battery with me just to charge it up.
Later I returned with a fully charged battery and a cold engine in 
the DMC. tried to fire her up and no go.
I inspected to fuses and even though none were burnt I replaced the 
fuses with some spares I keep so I can rule out dead fuses. I also 
noticed I wasnt hearing anything come from the fuel tank like the 
pump pressurizing the lines or anything at all for that matter. 

The only strange thing I can really think about was a pop clicking 
noise comming from the fuse box area when the cooling fans turned on 
and again when turned off. other than that the car was running 
normal on a hot 91 degree day until I shut it down. 

so im gona see about testing the fuel pump, but my question is this. 
Why? how can this part go bad just like that.

Thank you
Josh Tidwell
