I Don't Know How To Change A Tire!!

Well, my daughter and I had a little adventure today. We went to a couple of thrift stores in town(I love to shop at thrift stores, you never know what goodies you are going to find!) and when we came out of the last one, I had a tire going flat. Well I will just tell you this county girl does not know how to change a tire and neither does my daughter. So I called my hubby and he says,"You need to go ahead and take it to our tire place and get a new tire because obviously it has a hole in it somewhere."  So herewe go to the tire place and the young man assures me that he has a tire to fit my car. He takes off my tire and puts the new one back on and it doesn't fit. He is very apologetic and I tell him that it is okay, besides he has been flirting with my daughter, so I let it slide. Then after searching for several minutes, he concludes that he does  NOT have a tire to fit my car. Now we turn to the spare tire that is kept in a little cubbie in the back part of my vehicle. I don't know if you are like me, but by the time I drive my car, and my daughter and grandson use my car, it looks like we live in it!!There are shoes everywhere, my grandson's fishing pole, a cranberry drink bottle that is almost empty (saving that in case we get stranded on the road), school stuff that I brought home to work on this summer that has not even made it out of the car, and various other items. Anyhoo, we finally rummage through all the "stuff" in the back and get the spare tire and he puts it on. By this time I am ready to go on home. I had planned on a trip to the WalMart because I got paid and that is what you do when you get paid (every teacher knows that). Oh and by the way, I am now carrying around an old tire with a hole in it in the back of my car! He didn't have room to keep it because they had such a pile of old tires. But what the heck, it is just one more thing in the back of my car, NO WORRIES.



  1. Hahaha! I'm a country girl who knows how to fix a tire, but why should we? Us damsels in the south are so cute in distress. =)

    P.S. My car has school stuff in it still, too.

  2. Hahaha...Your adventure made me laugh. We've had issues with flat tires this summer also. What is it with the tires???

  3. I feel your pain! I recently traded in my car and was quite embarassed with all the stuff I had to fish out of my trunk...including Valentine candy and craft supplies left over from our end of the year party! I just looked at the guy and said, " I'm a teacher", to which he nodded as if he totally understood.
    Save the tire....I'm sure there is a creative cute use for it on Pinterest somewhere!

  4. I had a flat tire a few years back. I know I've watched a few be changed in my life, but it's always been easier to call for help :) I'm giving you the One Lovely Blog award. Head on over to my blog to learn more about it.

  6. What a bummer to get a flat tire while on a shopping spree. It is sad that your hubby was not there to help, but his advice was the right thing to do. I once got into an accident too; one of my rear tires just flattened out as I was driving on rough road. The sad thing was I only had one spare tire, so I had to push the car to the nearest repair shop. Now I always have another spare in my trunk every time I drive.

  8. I am quite disappointed with the man who changed your tire. You expected him to be an expert on the field, so he should’ve been able to determine if the tire suits your car in the first place. It’s a good thing though that you have a spare tire in your car. It would have taken you longer if you didn’t have it.
