Dun Dun Dunnnnnnn....Flat Tire!!!!

Not a lot has been going on with me the last few days! But true to my promise I will post regardless! LOL!!! I have not been having so much luck lately with my car! I guess that is why I never got a used car in the past! But my little "Maroon POS" will last me until I can get a brand new car!

Yesterday morning, I get up, mind you ready to leave in plenty of time to stop by, if you follow me on Twitter, LishaP16, my "boyfriend" Ronald's...most know his chain as "McDonalds" (we are on a first name basis!) to get my daily Dr. Pepper, and lo and behold...(dun dun duhhhh...) I have a flat tire! UGHHHH!!! How aggravating is this! Expecially since I JUST stopped on Tuesday to have a tire shop check my pressure, since Dad said they were "looking a little low"!

Needless to say, I was about 30 minutes late to work!

First of all, my Super Hero Dad, wouldn't answer his cell, I hate those ExxonMobil meetings! Im outside in the garage trying to figure out how to use his air compressor, 20 minutes later, I realize I WAS using the correct part about 15 minutes earlier, just wasn't pushing it in all the way! WAY TO GO LISHA!!!! Tire aired up, I went back inside to tell Mom I was leaving, oh, did I mention Mom came out to "help me" about 15 minute into my attempts at airing up the tire and UNPLUGGED the machine! HA! That added about 5 minutes of, "What the heck is going on", to my time!

When I'm on my way out the door the phone rings at the house and who is it???? DAD! Just a few minutes late, might I add, to help me out with his machine! But he did lend me a word of advise, "You should take it to Discount Tire to get it patched up! They can do it in about 10 minutes and only cost you $5- $10!"Off to work I go, with a newly aired up tire and worries that it will deflate at work and cause me to call Super Hero (SH) Dad, all the way out to LaPorte to rescue me! However, thank the Lord, I checked it at lunch and no flat tire and again as I was leaving at 5pm and still no flat tire!

Leaving this morning Dad did mention that it looked "a little low" again! But it was still aired up this morning!I guess a few things did happen that seemed menial to me but quite funny when typed out! Lets just hope that my run of bad luck is ending soon!
