Do you ever find that it’s the little things that annoy you most? Well that was me today. The simplest task of putting some air into my tires nearly sent me into child like temper tantrum.
Putting air in my tires just annoys me. I don’t know why. It’s just a pain. But today I noticed one of my tires was low. So I drove down the block to the gas station to fill er up. I like visiting this gas station because their air is free (that’s hard to find these days). Well, the end of the hose was broken and it ended up letting more air OUT of my tire rather than putting any in. Eek.
Down the street I go again to the next gas station. Put my loonie in the machine, start filling up my tire. Wait, what’s that sound? Oh, there are several holes in the hose and all the air is coming out there instead of into my tire.
Ok, now I’m starting to panic a little. My tire is lower than when I started and now the next gas station is a few kilometres away. But I made it. After waiting several minutes for the guy in front of me to figure out how to check his air pressure and find out where to put the wind shield washer fluid, I finally, SUCCESSFULLY, filled up my tire.
Kind of a pain right? Right! Well, for whatever reason this seems to happen to me all the time. Putting air in my tires, a simple task, has officially turned into the most annoying chore! So that brings me to this question for you…what simple things just drive you bonkers?
