So I got in my car yesterday and the low-tire alarm went off. Now, it isn’t some pleasant little beep. It sounds more like this.
Combined with this.
Brrrrrrrrraaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhh taaaaaaaaa taaaaaaaaa! Ta!
Holy mother fucker son of a bitch! I was pulling into the street when the noise hit. SUPER loud! Just to let me know my tire was 2 pounds low. I wonder what it would do if the tire was seriously flat. I would most likely be deaf.
What the hell does that mean? It looks like a little man diving into a wine glass or perhaps an old-fashioned soup cup. Or someone surprised to see snakes weaving around a rubber doormat. Or maybe the shower stall doormat. It would really be scary to see snakes lurking around the shower.
So I got to the museum and one of the best volunteers ever checked my tires. Two pounds low. AND a screw in the rear left tire. Nice. I took it to Discount Tires (best ever) and they fixed it for free. I had to wait almost two hours, but they fixed it and sent me on my merry way.
I think this is all quite funny because the actual horn on my car goes…..ung ung. Really nothing at all. But get a screw in your tire and you would think the alarms are sounding for a massive tornado touchdown.
Big fun at the museum today. Major arrival of the cars for the next exhibit. Got these so far.
All-electric Fisker. No longer in production. Cost approximately $100,000.
All-electric BMW i3. Cost approximately $85,000.
Electric Smart Car. Cost approximately $18,000.
I wonder what happens when their tires need air.
