I Had a Flat Tire
I had a flat tire.
There's a Gibbs Service Station on Centre Street in JP. The mechanic there, Charlie, is good at fixing tires.
I drove my car in, after inflating the tire.
Told him I had a leak.
He said, "I'll take a look at it right now."
That was somewhat of a "No Way!" moment because that never happens at service stations, but Charlie is always like that.
That's why I always bring my cars to him when they need tire work.
In the end the tire needed to be replaced.
I could have gone over to BJ's to get a discount, but I had Charlie order a tire and install it.
He even called me at home to apologize that it wouldn't be ready in the morning, but would be done in the afternoon because his suppliers didn't have it in stock.
