Well son of a gun, I was driving to work this morning and I got a flat tire. I looked in the back for my jack. Guess what; I don’t have it (slap to the forehead). Yesterday I took it out to use on the wife’s jeep. She had some brake pads starting to grind so I figured i would use my floor jack to lift her car. I keep it in my Isuzu since it didn’t come with the original jack when I bought it. I figured it would work better than the little jack that came with her jeep. After using it dumb me rolled it to the porch and never put it back where it belongs; with me…in my ride… So from my phone I’m typing away as we speak, while sitting here waiting for a frustrated wife to bring me my floor jack. A great start to a beautiful Friday. I’m not going to let it get me down though, its Friday!
This little unfortunate experience came with a lesson to be learned. Every time you start the car, know a flat tire could happen at any time. Keep in your car all necessary items such as a JACK for one, a lug wrench and even a change of clothes. Whether you get a flat on the way to work or spill coffee all over yourself on the way to an interview, you’re covered.
Insure yourself from wasted time, and frustrated family members, is within your control. Live your life prepared for what may happen. While insurance is the best way to protect yourself from large financial losses, a little preparation can go a long way to help you get through the miner issues life may throw at you; such as a flat tire. You ultimately have the ability to reduce most of the risks you will find in life.
