Wal-Mart And My New Tire

mom says
I went to get my tire at fixed at Wal-Mart’s tire center.  I bought the tires there originally and added the road hazard protection plan.  It cost me $10 per tire when I bought the tire but it fixes or replaces the tire if there is a road hazard that hurts the tire.  Since my tire is repeatedly losing air I figure there must be something in the tire.  I have looked and don’t see anything but then again I am not a tire fixer person.

I actually took the car in several weeks ago but didn’t have the receipt in the car, yeah I know keep the car stuff in the glove box.  I figured Wal-Mart had records as well but apparently they only have a record of me buying the tires, not of me adding the road hazard plan on the tires.  I was not a happy person when they insisted I didn’t have the road hazard plan.  My dad always insists I get the plan and I know there is no way I would have not gotten it but that wasn’t good enough for the tire center supervisor.

Anyhow I took the car back in today and there was a nail in the tire on the inside of tire nearest the wheel well which is why I didn’t see it.  The tire had to be replaced but it cost me nothing but the tire disposal fee, a whole $1.50.  Oh and I did have to pay $10.00 to put the road hazard plan on the new tire.  The plan is like a one time use thing but worth it, in my opinion.

As I waited for my car I talked to the supervisor of the tire center.  I suggested, very nicely, that maybe they should have a way to update their records to reflect added on purchases such as the road hazard plan.  Since according to their system and records I didn’t have the plan on any of the tires.  He was so rude to me.  Not a perceived rude, he was outright rude.  He told me that the store did me a favor by letting me add the road hazard plan after I bought the tires and it was my own fault for not having the receipt in the car.  Just to note I bought the tires and paid for them and when handed the receipt I noticed the road hazard plan wasn’t charged.  I pointed it out and they added the road hazard plan right then literally seconds after I paid for the tires initially.  They weren’t doing me any special favors, Wal-Mart forgot to 1) offer the protection plan when they wrote up the initial order and 2) didn’t add it on there even when I said I wanted it.

Overall I was pleased with the tire center as they found the problem and got me in and out pretty quick.  The nail was too big and where it was in the tire meant they had to replace the tire entirely so it took a little longer than I expected but still good time overall.

Speaking of cars, I haven’t forgotten about the article on how to save on gas.  I have been doing the research and really there are not great solutions out there.  I have found a lot of solutions but I am looking for real practical solutions not just the science.  For example, one solution is to drive slower.  Ummm I think we all know that by now.  Another was not to have anything strapped to the top of your car.  How many people have stuff strapped to the top of the car on a daily basis?  I am looking more for solutions I can actually use, that will save me money on gas, daily.  I have a found two so far.  I want to do a little more research before I just write up those two.  Sadly though it doesn’t look like there is much you can do that is actually practical.

Last is a mystery smell in my car.  I got in the car and it smells like spoiled milk, more specifically spoiled chocolate milk.  I searched the car and there are no food or drink containers anywhere.  The kids swear up and down that they haven’t spilt anything or even brought any food or drinks into the car.  I got out the Febreeze and sprayed it down real good.  The smell is gone but that doesn’t resolve the mystery of where it came from.  It is probably time to pull all the seats out and clean it out real good anyways.  With four kids goodness knows what I will find.

I am slowly but surely making it down my list of things to get done.  The only problem is it seems for every one thing I get done, two more things are added to the list.  Such is life.  Honestly, I am not sure what I would do with myself if everything on the list was done, though I am sure I could find something.  An empty to-do list sounds like heaven doesn’t it.
