(Yes, scoff as much as you would like, I did wear a white and black jacket to dump trash, and it stayed clean)
And then, disaster struck...
It turns out, up to three tire places will keep putting air in it till you get to the right place that will replace your tire, only problem is the wait. All I wanted them to do was put the stupid spare on. They told me it would be about 2 hours till somebody could see me. Want to know how to get them moving faster? Offer to change it yourself in the parking lot, then argue with the manager that you are fully capable of doing it all by yourself, you just may need to borrow some air when your done. That lit a fire under their asses! A mechanic pointed me to the bay I was supposed to pull into about three minutes later. Then poses the question, how many trained mechanics does it take to get a spare tire out from under a truck? I can do it myself on my own, apparently they cant.
After all is said and done, I tipped the guys fifteen bucks and drove to the tire store that had the right tire. Now im a little leery of the dump, im scared it will pop more tires, and I cant afford that!
On a lighter note, look at this cute freakin puppy I got to play with today! Its a Boerboel Mastiff and super expensive, but horrifically adorable. I couldnt get a still picture of him, so heres one from online.
