Bad Day Yesterday:

The good news is I managed to get to work on time, teach all three of my class, effectively as I normally do.

The bad news, I picked up two flat tires on the way to work. It must have been from a site close to my work because the tires didn't really start losing air until I was parked at work. One of the tires had a nail in it, the other, just a hole. Triple A had to come twice, once to put on a spare and the other to plug the hole and fix the broken tire. Only $20 in addition to what I normally pay Triple A. But I have to fix the spare tomorrow and replace the tire with a hole in it. The tires have about 40,000 miles on it; so it's not like they are new. The headache of dealing with the whole thing was the worst part (I had to do this between classes). But then again, if this is the worst of my luck, it ain't so bad.

I had the same thing a few weeks ago - double holes in a tire.

I think my daughters were driving behind the stores in the loading zones - where they throw the pallets - and the nails pop out and junk abounds. I've requested they STOP taking these short-cuts and stick to the regular paths.

It ain't no short-cut to get a flat tire at any time of the day!

Thanks. I'm hoping this is a rare event.
