Today, I was driving home from Eureka after school got out. I graduated from the JC up there (College of the Redwoods) and had a crazy booze-infested night. So today, I got up and me and my brother started driving home. Well, all was going well, until we hit Rocklin. I heard a loud noise and immediately knew it was a flat. To make matters worse, my cell was out of juice, so I had to flag down a car to get a cell to call, as I was on the side of I-80. It was raining like hell as well. Well, a car showed up with some hot girls who looked like Nicky Hilton; they let me use their phone. So, I called up AAA, and got the tire replaced w/ the temporary "spare" that is really small. So, my brother and me drove across town to Davis going about 40 MPH--long, annoying trip! Now, I'm in Davis, and tomorrow I'm going to get a new tire. I was cold and wet from all the rain, but I'm enjoying a couple brews courtesy of my friehd right now. Just thought I'd share that little misadventure with all of you.

And I thought I was the only one to call AAA because of a flat tire - everyone over here seems to go "I do it myself, it's a macho thing to replace a tire"! But after all, there's a reason if I pay membership to those automotive associations...

Quoting Flynlr (Reply 3): you would call an AAA service to come out and change a tire that you have in your trunk with all the tools needed to do so ????
Im not that patient./
I agree. Changing a tire is about the easiet thing you can change on a car, and you had to call AAA to come and do it for you? You couyld have changed the tire and gone and had a new tire put in your rim in the time you probably sat there and waited.

I didn't have the tools to do so. I had the actual "temporary" spare in the back, buried under a mountain of my belongings, but not the actual tools. So, it was either call AAA, or sleep on the side of I-80 the entire night. I chose the former.
