darkwolfie took the truck up to wash out the bed, as it was full of crap, before loading it to go to Glen Linn.

He got a flat.

My AAA membership expired.  I got a new one, but he doesn't have his cell with him so I can call him to tell him so; he called me from a pay phone.  And oh, he got the flat at a Shell station, and they won't let him change it in their parking lot.  These are the same pricks who tried to tell him he needed a new front suspension when he got the truck inspected there.  I'm never going into that station again.

Grrr!!!
I hate store owners who act like that! Whatever happened to "help your fellow man".
I have some choice words I would give the guy.

It's probably because they also have a garage, and Wolfie could have had them change the tire (for a hefty fee). But we *have* a mechanic, and whatever money goes into the maintenance of the truck, I want to go to them. Hell, they're right across the street.

But now we have Triple A, so any further emergencies I will refer to them. :-)

Even so, it still rude and I can't tolerate that.
AAA is very handy to have. :)
