Admission is FREE Rachel and I are both working. It's in Vallejo, Saturday and Sunday.
Ok so one night last week when Rachel and I went to go buy our very first digital camera, I somehow picked up a GINORMOUS bolt in my tire. I mean the head of this thing was at least a half inch across. Amazingly enough I didn't blow out my tire and we were actually able to drive home with the bolt there. The next day We put the donut on, and I called Sears to see what kind of coverage I had.
Because they had been out of tire patches, I had to wait till they came in to take the tire in. which I did. Last night. I get there and the tire tech says he can't patch it the hole is too big. I'm gonna need a new tire. How much is that going to be? They put in some numbers.
"it's half worn so it's prorated to $50.00"
$50? Crap, I don't have $50 to spare, but I can't drive to Arizona on a donut, so I guess. Then I look over the paper work and I notice the two front tires on my car are about half worn, but the other rear tire is barely worn at all. like it still has 80% of the tread. So I ask, "how come the one tire isn't worn at all? That doesn't make sense" So she offers to go out and measure it again (mostly to get me to shut up I think) and she comes back in an immidiately starts typing at the computer.
She had made a mistake.
She had measured someone elses tire.
They had 4 cars come in in the 20 minutes before I did, and she took measurements on the wrong tire. My tire was only 20% worn, just like the one on the other side, so the new tire cost me...
$4... in enviromental disposal charges.
Thank god for road hazard insurance. $4 got me a brand new tire and we're on the road! :D

I am happily married to my beautiful Bride. That's her in the pictures. We collectively have six cats and two dogs. Life has been good to me so far, it has not always been fun, but it has been good. The best is yet to come though, and I'm really looking forward to spending it with Rachel.
