Longtime readers will recall I shredded my spare tire in the misguided belief that it’s OK to drive on it while flat. Who knew? Today I picked up the shiny new spare tire, which cost 85 bucks. That seemed like a lot for a donut tire, but whatever. I placed it in the back of the hatchback on top of a bunch of U-Haul cardboard boxes and drove home.
Three hours later as I went out to leave for work, I noticed that the rear window had been smashed, and not in a good way. I’m guessing.they were after my shiny new spare tire but got interrupted because the parking lot has a lot of people coming and going.
Downside: Replacing the window will cost $326.09, roughly twice the value of my car.
Upside: 85 bucks for a shiny new spare tire doesn’t seem that expensive anymore.
Life is funny …
