Well, over the weekend, I had some running to do, jump in the ole car and head down the road.. hey a warning light is on... Low Tire Pressure.

Crap, I hate cars... Ok, stop in the local station and fill the tires with air, that should do it.

Get my running done and back home. All is well.

Get up for work this morning, hey there's another warning light..

Extremely Low Tire Pressure. I get out walk around the car... oh crap, the back tire is almost flat. Great...

Head back to the station, fill it with air. Decided on my way to work, I'd better stop and have it looked at. So I drop the car off at a loca tire place, call a buddy from work to pick me up.

I'm sitting here at work, the phone rings.. "hey this is Sean at Tireman, your tire had a nail in it, and you need a new tire. The nail was on the sidewall, and we can't patch or plug tires there"

"I have the one that matches your other tires in stock, it's $158 installed."


I don't have $158 just laying around.... man I'm upset....

We were just planning on a weekend getaway to go to KY and see my daughter... now this $158 problem.

arghhhhh, well I went and paid the $158, tire looks nice on my car and they did throw in an free rotation and balance on the other tires....

I hate owning a car....

Tires think they're so cool. Rollin' around, hangin' like swings from trees, makin' smoke, goin' flat and stuff.
I hate tires.

You obviously don't have a 4x4 or a sports car then? much is your life worth?
