Percussive maintenance.
« on: June 03, 2013, 07:24:53 PM »
Mom was driving home from the beach when the front left tire blew out, spare was not inflated. Thankfully I keep a compressor in the car so I was able to get it up to 60 psi. I'm damn lucky it wasn't also flat.

So check your car now. Make sure your jack is operative, make sure your spare is inflated.

I really want to walk over to the construction site I know caused this and just start a bless'ed Battle Royale.

No problemo, I probably should have mentioned it in the post.

The spare wheel is this stupid little donut thing, looks like it belongs on a wheelbarrow.

What were you doing on a construction site? Or was it normal road construction?

Make sure it's there!! One of my sisters in law bought a car 2 days ago. She made a not to herself to secure the spare someway cause she thought it was a bit easy to steal. Less than 24 hs later the spare was gone.
Blessed country.  ::)

60psi? What does she drive, a monster truck?
Don't put off until tomorrow, what you can put off until the day after.

There is an exception to every rule, apart from this one.
