Just as I was about to get in the car I caught a glimpse of the left front tyre, there was a nail sticking out of the the tread. I looked closer and found that a big roof tack had embedded itself into the relatively new tyre.
As I tried to pull it out air started hissing out so I stopped. and banged it back in. It had to be left there and the puncture fixed at a garage. no luck on birthday days either it seems, and so early on in the day!
So today involves going to a garage and getting the puncture repaired, time and money always seems to be the penalty for bad luck. does that mean people with good luck are richer? I think yes is the answer to that.
