Much as I truly hate to disappoint Heather, there ARE no pictures of the guy at the service station wrestling the tire off of Pickle Chip. There are many reasons for this:
1. I didn’t take Pickle Chip to a service station (careful, you’re dating yourself of you even REMEMBER “service stations”!) I took him to Midas™.
2. I refuse to get a camera phone, and do not routinely carry my digital camera with me. That’s OK, however, because I was at work at the time.
3. Most importantly, THE STUPID TIRE CAME RIGHT OFF FOR HIM WITH NO PROBLEM!!
After I had slaved in the hot sun trying to remove the goofy thing, getting it nice & loose for him and slathering it with enough WD-40 I should qualify as an investor I the company, it popped right off.
Of course, I suppose he could have been pulling my leg, or the mechanic might not have wanted to look like a doofus who couldn’t even get a tire off of a car, but that’s their story and their stickin’ to it. Anyway, I had them replace the axle part that was causing all of the tire wear, which was the primary reason I took Pickle Chip to Midas™. Besides, they understand why it takes two keys to drive him- one to open the door, and half of one to use in the ignition because the OTHER half is still broken off inside of the switch. Remember – 40 miles per gallon.
