That's it, I'm cursed... [Apr. 12th, 2009|10:49 pm]
Nearly got hit by a car today.

Swerved to avoid it, clipped the curb.

Wheel got cracked, tire blew out.

Tow truck came to help me change the tire, but we couldn't get the lugs to move.

Put the car on the flat bed and took it to a nearby gas station; where the flat bed broke. No joke.

The driver, mechanic (Serbian Orthodox, thank God), and the attendant couldn't get the bed to move.

So I had to wait for another guy from the tow company to come and fix the flat bed.

THEN the mechanic was able to power the lugs off and change the flat.

So .. why were you happy that he was Serbian Orthodox? Are they like Greek Orthodox and don't celebrate Easter until next week? Sounds like a poopy experience!

Yup, apparently All Orthodox celebrate Easter next weekend. So, because it wasn't really a holiday for him, he was at the garage! The one lucky stroke in a day of otherwise bad luck.
