Another Flat Tire

Written By: Gary on July 13, 2005 One Comment

So I went to leave the house and I had another flat tire, not a crisis I just wished I had noticed it earlier. It had a nail (maybe it was a screw) in it. I’m thinking that was a new tire from a few weeks ago (I had a flat on a different tire, but they rotated so I think this is a the new one). I didn’t wimp out and call the Auto Club (but isn’t that what I pay them for?).  So much for the productive day I had planned. So now I’m getting fast food and waiting at the shop for the tire to be replaced….

This just ties into the kind of day I had so far:

  • Spilled on my clothes twice (so I changed twice).
  • Knocked a jar of medicine into the toilet (at least it was empty, so into the trash with it).
  • They call me and tell me it’s going to be longer before the auto club gets there so I go back inside and start grilling up some food. Guess who shows up as I start that? Now I’m eating fast food…
  • And they just scrubbed the Shuttle Launch. Very disappointing day so far…

    UPDATE: Shuttle rescheduled for Saturday.

    UPDATE 2: Tire was covered under the road hazard warranty (I love Belle Tire). Plus they fixed a rim leak in another that was running low. Was still a hassle and wasted a bit of time but at least it was free. :)

      Arg, sorry – nothing worse than heading out to your car and seeing a flat tire on it… went through a spat of those myself and have gotten quite good at putting on my spare!
