First - a warning. This is a full-on rant. I am really hormonal right now and what happened this evening - well, let's just say I could have done without it. How convenient that MB created this blog... so timely.
For those of you who were tweeting along with the fun... bear with me while I recount my experiences...
So, this evening I was just sitting on my couch, tweeting, as I do of a Saturday evening. MusingBella, Jaymes805, RenaBug1 and LivingwEdward were chatting about Vampires Suck. I've wanted to see that movie for ages, and the more they tweeted, the more I wanted to go get it. So, I hopped in the car and headed to the mall, 5 minutes from my house.
A short while later, movie and takeaways in hand, I head back to the car, only to discover this:
So. Not. Happy.
You see, this happened to me not two weeks ago.
Same wheel. I took my flat to the local tyre store and asked for a repair. Nothing out of the ordinary, except apparently that tyre had been driven on flat for too long and was destroyed. 'Not to worry', according to the guy, 'we've got some second hand tyres here, in good condition, that will be just fine'. I'd had second hand tyres in the past with no problems, so I happily accepted this, handed over my $69, and went on my way.
When I waited AN HOUR AND A HALF for roadside assistance. So glad I had my takeaways, and my phone! Thank God for Twitter and fanfic when you've got time on your hands, eh?
The roadside assistance guy reckons the tyre shop guys ripped me off with a dodgy tyre. Do ya think? No shit, Sherlock.
So yeah, I'll be going back to the tyre shop next week to have some stern words with the manager. He won't know what's hit him.
Now, I'm finally home, and watching Vampires Suck. It's funny, which is good. If not, I'd feel supremely pissed off that I coulda stayed home on the couch and watched a different DVD. J/S.
Thanks for letting me vent! Over and out.
