09:01 pm - Car issues
So I was going out to Wendys for lunch at work yesterday. As I was turning onto the street where Wendys is, my car didn't actually turn. And ended up hitting the median curb. Hard. The steering was all messed up.

I ended up limping it to a local Belle Tire store, after work, going 20 mph with my hazard lights on. It turns out my tires were pretty bald which is why I was sliding. I figured at a minimum I would need new tires, a new rim for the one that hit the curb and a control arm. Turns out it was more than that. $2100 more.

But I could have been on the freeway when I had my difficulties and be overturned in a ditch somewhere.

I'm really glad you didn't end up in a ditch, or worse:)

I'm thinking it was tho Old Man's way of saying, "You should have been prepared and gotten new tires when you had the chance."

Tires freak me out, especially in winter. Glad you're ok.
