Flat tires suck
I got off work this AM after a fairly uneventful shift of weak and dizzy, and Unconscious in a car to a flat tire. I got out of the parking lot of the county building I work in before I relized it. It was a bit of a delayed reaction. Like I felt the car driving funny, yet it didn;t register until I was out of the parking lot. So I first called my supervisor who was at the station I just left and then my father. My supervior helped me change my tire, well I mostly watched as he changed my tire. I then drove home very slowly because the donut I was driving on made it hard to steer. Once at home I unloaded the 12 gallons of water that was in my trunk. Yess 12 gallons, It was left over from the hurricane scare and according to EMS policy I needed 3 days worth of food water and clothing. So I had went to the local Walmart and picked up H2O for both me and my roommate. Anyways I figured I would get out of the hot uncomfortable uniform and take a shower before I took my car to the tire place. So it was about 0930 when I arrived at the tire store. I was greeted cheerfully and took myplace among the masses also waited for their car to be released back to them. I was told it would take about an hour. So I sat quietly in the corner read my book and waited...and waited...and waited...and then waited some more. 3 hours later I was told my car was finished. Free of charge. With a rose on my seat. So I feel I could not complain about the time I waited. Even though I was exsausted from having just gotton off work and almost fell asleep several times in the waiting area. I was almost the asshole.
