Hey, Tina and I were on our way home from the folks house, going down New Town Rd. in Union County, NC. Well, it was dark as could be, and I went around a curve, and over a bridge. Upon approach of the bridge I see two huge chunks of something in the middle of the bridge, covering both lanes of this tiny country bridge. I had no choice but to run it over. It felt, and sounded awful. I cringed, but rolled on. I got about four miles down the road, and it felt as if the tire was going down. So, I got to the only place on this road that was well lit, and had ample space to change the tire. Just as I turned in, the tire let go of the rim, wow good timing. So, I get everything out of the trunk, prepare to change the tire, and notice the locking lugs. WTF!! There is supposed to be a key attached to the lug wrench. Not! Well, Tina calls AAA. What a rip off they are. They said 45 minutes, ok that is cool. An hour and a half later, she phones back. The lady states that it will be another two and a half hours, it is 1 am now, I tell them to **** off. Today I get the car to the Taj Ma Ford dealer. They remove the lock lugs, replace them with regular lugs. Cool. I take a look at the rim, it has a huge bend in the inside. It is trash. The front rim, and the right rim also have damage, but just cosmetic. So, the one tire is toast, along with the rim. I am getting the rim replaced, and am getting a set of new tires cause Tina said so. Who am I to argue?? :D All in all, it was an eventful evening. Oh yeah, I drove by the bridge today,....and the hole has a fresh patch. *raising my fists, yelling, you bastards!*


sorry for the long rant......ahhh I feel better!

I called today. I have to fill out a form, and send it to the attorney general's office. Something like that. I am going to give it a shot. The new(refurbished) rim cost me $175. And the new tire for that rim is $145. Not to mention if there is any damage to the underside of the car. I will know that tomorrow.
