Friggin’ Tires!!

Ok so I will admit that I am not the most observant when it comes to things that need changed.  I do remember about changing my oil much better now than when I was younger.  I do check batteries and remember to buy laundry detergent.  I check things and make sure that we have enough and that we replace when getting low….but I never stop to think about my tires.  Yeah….noticed that my tires were really worn on the front.  Like dangerously so.  Threadbare on one side and cables showing on the other. So I limped it to work this morning BEGGING for it to not go flat before I got here.  Did not think about asking for it not to go flat before I get it to the place to get the new tire…..Soooooo I pulled into the parking lot, parked, opened my door and heard a hiss of air rushing out of my tire.  Daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaammiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit!  **Sighs**So now I have to limp it to Wal-Mart to get a new tire in rush hour traffic.  Good thing is that it is close.  Bad thing is that I was sick one day last week so the paycheck is a day short.  Will there ever come a time when I can just get a little ahead??
