Well I had a big CLUSTER last night.

Ilona had a screw in her tire. Her car doesn't have a spare.

We had Discount Tire get a tire on a rim to use as her spare.

I picked it up they gave me lugs to go with the new tire. Smaller in diameter for this new wheel.

I get her tire off. She has male studs not female lug nuts. The old lugs wont work with the new wheel.

I ended up being able to plug her tire but half of her old lug nuts are rounded over. I had a hard time getting them tight.

No one carries those lugs locally.

I'm taking this new wheel and tire back.

Discount Tire rooked me once; got some new tires.... they didn't return my anti-theft keyed lug adapter.
I didn't notice till quite some time after, just assumed the nimrod would have put it back where I had it.
Or somewhere.
It wasn't a problem though, called them,"Oh, we've got a drawer full of them."
No shit.
Glad I didn't need to put on the spare on the freeway.

Discount has lost all future business from me.

They even charged her for the disposal of a tire they didn't have to dispose of and other frees she didn't agree to.

If I said I had a roll of Romex®, what would I have?

Only one U.S. president was a bachelor.
Who was it?

Is Florida or Hawaii further south?
