 My jeep had a flat tire this morning, which served as a handy reminder that soon I shall have to shell out close to $1,000 for a new set of winter tires. Also need to buy winter tires for my Camry. Gotta love when your tires all need replacing at the same time. _________________"For every moment of triumph, for every instance of beauty, many souls must be trampled."

You email and call dozens of times over something that should be straightforward, that is their job to implement, and they palm you off with a, "yeah, I'll get right on that" Two weeks later it's still not done. It wouldn't be too much of a problem, except, now everybody is doing it. _________________If you are doomed to be boring - make it short.

Of course once it's all done, I will be able to laugh about it and have a story to tell with buddies whenever we discuss car problems. It seems when we swap mechanic horror stories, we all try to one up each other with harder repairs. _________________"For every moment of triumph, for every instance of beauty, many souls must be trampled."
