Funny story

My mom and I were driving back from my therapy session. We had pulled onto the highway and we were hearing this really loud sound. Mom was like "sounds like the muffler's going out." and was laughing. Then the car starts jerking and losing control. So mom had to pull over to the side of the road. (We got over okay.) My mom was laughing hysterically at this point. We smelled/smelt (<--don't know which is right but too lazy to look up) something burning. I got out of the car and looked at the tires. Our back right tire had disintigrated. I told my mom she had to come look at it. So she got out to look at it. She called my dad to see if he could meet us and she called AAA (our car insurance) to come help us out. All they did was put on a spare. They didn't even send a real tow truck. They just sent a regular pick-up truck. It was like what would have happened if we needed one? 0.o So we drove the rest of the way to the car shop so mom could buy a new tire. She now has 3 different tires on her car. <--That's just sad. But yeah. So that was my exciting adventure of the day. Then we had to take my grandma's Jeep into the shop too. Car trouble just runs in the family I suppose. lol.

A crappy picture:

The whole inside of the tire was blown. We were lucky it wasn't worse.

2 words from my listeners:
