On the way to work this morning I was driving along and went “bump-bump” over something in the road. Then I heard “clang-clang-clang-clang” in rhythm with my tires and thought, “That can’t be good.”
I pulled over at a gas station and got out of the car and saw a metal object in my tire and heard air hissing out the center of the object.
I watched my tire deflate very quickly before my eyes. Bummer, but not the end of the world, just a moderate inconvenience.
As I was texting my boss to let him know my situation, the emissions van guy walked over with a phone book, that was nice. I could have searched on my phone but the phone book was a nice CONVENIENCE. 😉
The tow truck guy showed up fairly quickly and he changed the tire in about 5 minutes, I was impressed. I was only an hour late to work, not bad at all.
