Would'nt ya know it. Just my luck. Spent 15 mins driving around in the parking lot trying to park so I could go to work and right as I'm turning to go up the third level POP! There goes one expensive Pirelli Scorpion. Some * from the construction crew left some crap out in the open, ran right over a screw with out seeing it. Lucky though, even with no pressure in the tire it was'nt completely flat. Had someone bring me a can of fix-a-flat and made it across the street where I put some air into it. By the time I got home it was flat again. Oh well.....

How was ya'lls day?

I spent the day tormenting a new kid. I had him searching for a water pump for over an hour, for a '72 VW Beetle.

Don't you just love the mechanically inclined people that get hired to work in parts stores?

I think the joke is more about the fact that those were air-cooled motors and don't have water pumps! maybe you knew that anyway-

87 when you get a new tire put on, tell the shop thats doing the work that you filled it with fix a flat. It use to drive me nuts when I would take off a tire I didn't had that in it.

Yesterday I worked for 8 hours and then went target shooting at an indoor range with my uncle, dad, and brother.

a screw eh?
a couple of months ago i ran over this bolt. i kept it as a conversation piece.
i also have a crescent wrench in my tool box (that still works) that i pulled out of a guys tire back when i was a mechanic.
