I had a few things planned on Friday so had to get organized and get going first thing. So I printed and sorted out what coupons I needed then got in the car to drive where I was going.
After calling road side assistance and being told that it doesn't cover changing a flat tire and being told that the charge was $50 I called our local towing company and asked them to come out. I decided to at least take the spare tire out of the car in preparation for them coming. I was actually proud of myself actually doing that.
I then decided to get out the manual to see if there were instructions on how to change a tire and was surprised to find there were instructions:
So I stood by the car reading the manual and a young girl pulled up and asked me if I needed help. I asked her what was her first clue that I had no idea what I was doing and she pointed to the manual!!! I told her I about the tow truck and she left. Not long after a gentleman stopped and he told me to cancel the tow truck and save myself some money and he would change the tire. So I cancelled the tow truck and he changed my tire and wouldn't take any money or even let me buy him a Tim Hortons coffee. What a lovely man he was.
I then drove to the Ford garage in Alliston and they looked at it and had to order me a tire. To cut a long story short the tire arrived Friday afternoon and I got the new tire installed. I have insurance on my tires.........turns out I bought it when I bought the car? It covers replacement tires, so it cost me nothing.
I honestly think after watching the guy put my spare tire on, I think I would be able to do it along with reading the instructions on the manual.
Now the bummer in all of this was I was only allowed to drive 80 kmph/50 mph when I had the spare tire on. Do you know very few people drive that slow, including me.
I called into a new to me store in Alliston called A Novel Idea I am going to take some books there and get a store credit for baby books for our home library.
