I'll just download some tires on Bit Torrent

So my car is not ready. Tires only come in on Thursday. Mom needs her car back. I went down to the shop and told the man, "Look, I'm going to Wichita, Kansas tomorrow. I need a a tire." So he starts looking at other customer's cars to find me a tire I can use for a week to get me to Kansas and back! He told me he'd have me one on there sometime tomorrow. You see, he specially ordered these tires for my car, and Discount Tire or somesuch was just not going to have this exact tire, and I need a matching set. He'll have the exact tire when I return from Kansas next Tuesday. I hope it doesn't take him two days to put that one on. So then I find the closing of my house has been moved up! To either 0900 or 1100 - I don't know which and won't know until tomorrow! I'm going to have to take an extra day of vacation! This is just crazy. I was supposed to install mod_j2k on a Sun v120 tomorrow. I wonder if I'll ever get to Kansas.

Its really cool that your lil' small town auto shop would care so much as to show so much interest in you getting the right tire and to even go to the trouble to get you a loaner tire until you get back from Kansas. Especially considering that you don't even live in said town.

I guess that last statement's veracity depends on when you read this: before or after you close on your house.

Either way, there is something to be said for just going to NTB or Discount Tire and saying 'yo mofo, sell me a tire'

I also think its funny that we changed a tire in 9 minutes with a shitty scissor jack on I-30 in 100 degree heat with fast moving traffic on either side.... and you're worried about it taking the tire guy 2 days to put on the right(left) tire once you get back.

Where are those photos anyway, mr 'here's a picture of every cat i've ever met, but can't be bothered to type 'img src' after your pal Tony goes to the trouble of documenting our little adventure in ones and zeros'?

Anyway, the point I was trying to make was: I HATE SAUERKRAUT!!
