mother’s day story-time

A cheerful Mother’s Day Story:

2N: Hi, I got a flat tire over the weekend. I’d like to replace it.

Rapist Tire Guy: Which tire?

2N: The front passenger.

RTG: Okay I’ll go have a look. Those are pretty common tires so it shouldn’t be a problem.

2N: Great thanks!

(Interlude: 10 minutes)

RTG: Okay, sure those are real common ones. Both the front ones need to be replaced, actually.

2N: Right, except right now I just want to do the one that’s flat.

RTG: (Perusing computer screen) Hmmm. Hmmm. Well, that will be $254.00.

2N: I’m sorry?

RTG: $254.00.

2N: No, no,  I just wanted the one.

RTG: That is just the one.

2N: Wait, you’re telling me it’s $254 for one tire? One “very common” tire?

RTG: Yes.

2N: How are you going to tell me that one tire is $254? That is ridiculous.

RTG: I’m sorry ma’am, that’s the best we can do.

2N: Well no wonder your store is empty. See ya.

****************************
The heroine of our story, after having changed her very first tire on the side of the road subsequently visited tire store #2 where she purchased TWO tires for $185.

Moral of the story: Les Schwab loves mothers more than Firestone does.
