The day refused to end on a high note

June 6th, 2009 at 09:02 am

What a night!

The wedding yesterday went just fine. I got a little after midnight and a coworker and I walked out to our cars together. I get in my car, start, and begin to drive up the hill when I notice my front tire is being weird. So I pull over and look at my front passenger tire.

It's flat!

My coworker saw me so she drove me back to the club to get my other coworkers and boss and have them help me change my tire. It is then that we realize that the front driver tire is flat too.

Two flat tires!

Argh. Fortunately my spare was in my car (when I bought the car I forgot to check for that. You can bet that now I'll never forgot to check the spare on a used car.) so we changed one tire and the other tire we fixed with "Fix-a-Flat". It is this foam that is pumped into the tire. It essentially makes the tire a spare as you can't drive very far on it. But the foam fills up the tire and coats any holes.

I'm going to be calling my mechanics very, very soon. Chances are someone let the air out of my tires (who, I don't know) but I still want to get the tires looked over. Just in case.

And I still have an essay to write today.

    thats tough. very annoying. but if someone just let the air out, then you have 1 tire you can just fill up and use again!

    Two, I think. I think the fix-a-flat foam can be washed out by the mechanic. At least I hope. Tires for my car are pretty cheap (around $50) so it won't be a huge financial loss if I have to buy a new one.

    oh what a bummer, glad you were able to get home safely. i hate it when something like that happens on a good night, it ruins it!
    about two years ago i drove ALL the way home (about 20 minutes) without even realising i had a flat tire because it was pouring with rain and hard to drive anyway. (i was so embarrased). lol.

    It has been raining almost non stop for the past week and half here. The only day there was no rain was yesterday (the bride really lucked out!). If it had been raining chances are I wouldn't have noticed the flat until I got on the freeway.
