bad luck

Two flat tires. Two days.

This morning, I took the car in to the tire store to see if yesterday's flat could be repaired, but not hoping for much because I have very bad luck with tires getting punctures in repairable places. Luckily, it turned out to be repairable, so half an hour later, I was back on the road. All was well, or so I thought. It seemed like pretty good luck that I didn't need to fork out for two new tires after having to replace the Jodie-eaten cell phone.

Anyway, I came home after school, a bit early because I was feeling stuffy and tired. I turned into my driveway and hit the curb hard, like an idiot. When I got out of the car, I heard the hissssss of the tire going flat. Bah! This hole was in the sidewall, so UNREPAIRABLE. Fortunately, I am now quite familiar with the procedure to change the Prius's tire, so twenty minutes later, I'm headed back to the tire store.

$200 later, I've got two new tires. Bah. At least this time they have a full warranty.

Extra anecdote: the only two tires of the sort I wanted were on hold. I guess the sales guy felt pretty sorry for me, so he called the guy whose tires they were reserved for, telling him that they only had one of his tires in, but they'd have two in tomorrow, so could he wait until then? I guess he agreed to this deal, so I got my two tires in less than an hour. I like America's Tire Co. They've always been good to me.
