How To Get Blown Three Times In Four Days

Here is the first of our three blown tires this week. The first one happened while Eddie was driving, the other two when I was behind the wheel.

I have always wondered what it would be like to blow a tire, since it has never happened to me. After hearing so many horror stories from people it had happened to, I was always very happy to have not had that experience; who would have thought my first time would be while I was driving an 18-wheeler?

Maybe that's a good thing though, being in the truck when it happened. After all, if you blow one tire, you still have seventeen more to keep you going. Overall, the experience wasn't as bad as I imagined it would be, the real hassle came with the time it took to get it fixed.

I think this whole tire thing gave Eddie some ideas; all of a sudden he wants me to call him Bridgestone.
