    !. Check your tire pressure and the air pressure in your spare. Cold air makes tires lose air pressure. Low air pressure results in premature tire wear. In other words, you run your tires out much faster, having to buy new ones a lot faster then you expected.

    2. Get your alignment checked at least 2 times a year, PLEASE people. Bad alignment chews up the inner or outer edges of your tires-premature tire wear-buying MORE tires. A 4 wheel alignment saves a fortune in tires.

    3. Rotate those tires at least as often as recomended in th emnaufactureres handbook for your car. PLEASE.

    4. If steel belts appear on your tire-that is NOT road debris, it IS your tire. Do not drive on that, you will have a flat and a wreck if you are going fast enough, or it is on the front of the car.


    Rant over, thank you very much. This rant was presented after seeing 3 separate cases of low air pressure/bad alignment flats. Half an ounce of prevention.......
    Thanks, Chris!
    But you already know I knew all a' that...!

    The one I like, is to be behind a car or truck on the road, and it looks like it's goin' down the road sideways. No amount of alignment will fix what a bent frame will do to tires, etc.! One darn good way to tell if a car's been wrecked before, too!

    Oh yea. Free is far and few between. Just bustin' your chops a bit!



    That is too funny.
    Kinda' surprised I got away with that one, actually...!

    Your kidding! Boy your immune system needs warm weather, cause you have nothing left.
    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.

    Sorry. Yep nothing like being bored to tears. Bett'n they will be sad to loose you.

    True, it probably can be dull. But it is a job. Last job I had that was utterly boring, I pretended it was an acting class-method acting. I survived until something better came happened. lol. Should be picking up though, spring has a way of getting the boater, jet skiers, atv's and such going again. Maybe Sears will happen. OR, maybe the other market will begin improving. Pixie dust, and lots of prayers.

    Well, at least it is more hours.

    Yeah, you should know those things. BUT a surprising number of people do not. That was a PSA, sort of, after a screaming woman wondered why her tires "went bad" after only 8 months. Hey lady, remember us telling you to take it to get aligned-NOW? Oh, that afects my tires?

    I am always surprised by the number of people who do not know what size tires they have or the approximate cost they should pay for a new set. THAT is how people get taken at tire stores, and they rarely think to as for a non name brand tire, as opposed to the super expensive name brand.

    If money is super tight, there are used tire stores in every city, and in a pinch, a used one is way less money and can last several months.

    Trying to help educate on that kind of stuff, cause I hear too many horror stories.

    But then, you knew that already. HAHAHAH

    I actually have a great sense of humor and zero issue with being the punchline. Laughter makes it all worth while.

    Good grief child. How about Green Tea extract and immune defense support from the health food store? I learned the hard way that sleeping with my head elevated keeps the sinus drainage out of my ears. Yucky, but no more ear infections.Be better soon.

    Our Sears is awful, so we never go there. It is filthy and the staff is horrid.

    They rarely ever clean or sort the place and only the Appliance and Tool departments are staffed with people who know anything.

    I asked about some school uniform parts in there and the girl looked right at me and said, "We don't sell school uniforms" at which point I asked her to please turn around, and look at the rack 2 feet away, YEP, FULL of school uniforms with a giant sign "School Uniforms".

    Yes, I sent an email to corporate.

    Speaking of uniforms, I need to buy DD a new plaid jumper. Hers is perfect in the shoulders but way too short. Poor thing, she is so thin, and so tall, she can wear a 12 for length, but needs an 8 for width.
