Flat Super Hero

Today wasn’t anything too exciting, just an ordinary day, but I did have the chance to play hero for just one moment. I was pumping gas when I went inside to pay for a car wash. A younger man was inside trying to see if the attendant could help him with the broken air pump. Well, there was nothing they can do about the pump until tomorrow and the nearest gas station is about 1/2 mile away. Far enough away that he could do major damage to his tire. Lucky him, that I am the queen of flat tires! I yet to see anyone that gets more flats than me. I say lucky, because I come prepared for flat tires (as long as there is only one flat). I got out my repair kit and Viola! No more flat….well, for the time being.

I know it sounds cheesy, but I honestly like helping someone in need, even if it’s something as simple as having the right tools at the right time.

Helpful Tip: To repair scratches on CDs and DVDs use mayonnaise. Put on disk and let dry for 3 or 4 minutes, then wipe off.
Random Recommendation: Fix-a-Flat tire repair kit.
