The last 24 hours have just kicked my butt.
I went out Sunday evening to get in the car with J to get dinner and one of my tires was devastatingly flat. (That means no Chipotle my friends, and that's bad juju.)I waited until a reasonable hour Monday morning so that I could call AAA. AAA came out, couldn't plug the tire, couldn't find a hole. They filled the tire with air though. J eats/naps and then we head to the dealership.
I get lost, with the GPS. And the tire is less than 1/2 full as I consult a map in a gas station in the middle of nowhere. I finally find the dealership, only to be told my brand new tire warranty doesn't cover nails, which is what they say did my tire in. Second time in less than 3 years. After sitting at the dealership for 2 hours, -$70 later to plug the hole, with a warning that I'll need to "cont. to watch it," I take cranky child to find dinner and get home asap to walk my dog. All I could do was sit in silence and stare straight head for 15 minutes before going to bed last night.
But today was a new day I told myself. Today would be better. Yeah, not so much. I went out to the vehicle to take J to the food store and the tire was completely flat again. After a few choice curse words that I regret in front of my child, I went back in the house to think about my options. The dealership told me when I left not to bring the tire back there, just to go buy a new tire. Of course, then they don't have to pay for it right. On the other hand, I don't really want to force them to fix it when they clearly don't want to. I think it stinks that I paid them $70 to plug a tire that didn't even hold for 24 hours, that seems wrong. So, I called AAA again, asked them to come take the crappy tire off so and put the spare on. I'd figure out where to get a new tire later. That's where I'm at. I don't know whether to sleep or cry, but scrapping seems far from my mind at the moment. Sorry about the picture less post, I'll try to do better next time friends. To be honest, I feel a little like that stupid tire. Exhausted.
