ADVENTURES AT DISCOUNT TIRE

So I noticed a big crack in my tire this morning and decided to get it taken care of sooner than later. I won’t mention the cost, but I feel as if at times I will never achieve financial victory in my life. Yes, I am faithful with my finances, which, by the way, had I not been, I could have bought a new car by now. With all my other recent money drains it is difficult to keep perspective.

So this morning I’m sitting here waiting for my new tires with a room full of fellow hard workers with tire issues. One in particular, Al (not his real name but we all sure know what it is by now) is hungover and passed out in a chair in the corner. They have called his name several times but he hasn’t moved. The lady next to me knows he’s alive because he snorted fifteen minutes ago. The Discount Tire clerk agreed Al needed to sleep off his weekend a little longer…that and because Al is so large if he touches him he might hurt him in his current condition.

Al woke up a couple of minutes ago, still fairly incoherent and in disbelief that anyone had called his name and he didn’t hear it. He went into the bathroom and screamed loudly, which is funny if you’d been watching him sleep the last half hour. He just drove off, and I hope he goes straight home and goes to sleep.

Meanwhile people are gawking at the wonder that is my HTC Evo (either that or I have spinach in my teeth). The only issue I have with it is battery life. The phone should at least stay charged all day and not have to be charged two or three times with minimal use…or not so minimal use.

Well my car is in the back now. Hopefully I will be on my way to work soon. It’s not nearly as much fun in here without Al.
