I don't know what it is about my car but every winter I get a flat tire. First it was the pit valves, then a chip in one of the wheels and then a staple punctured my tire last year. I walk out yesterday and both my front tires are flat...

Since I haven't driven the car in 3 weeks I hope it was a slow leak and refill the tires with a manual pump in -28'C with wind chill. Oh, joy! After the refill I waited a bit to listen of leaks and checked the tires one hour later to check again and they seemed fine. I went to go use my car today and the damed tires are flat again. So damned annoying! I went to refill my tires and my pump broke. I grabbed my spare pump that has never been used and apparently it's broken too...

I'm going to try to get a friend to pump my tires from his cars cigarette lighter pump from his car cuz my lighter is dead. If that dose not pan out I gotta use public transit to get to another Canadian Tire because the One here in Oshawa sucks and never seems to have what I need.

Gord, what you doing in Oshawa?? I thought you lived in Barrie, when did you move my way?

Which CT did you go to? I think both of them in Oshawa suck, the one by the mall is not so bad though.

If you need to borrow a pump let me know, I have a small one that still works.

I moved out of Barrie a couple years ago and went back to Burlington. I moved to Oshawa back in September because I'm going to Durham College now for Computer Animation. I'm renting a place till April then I'm ether moving back to Burlington or to Alberta depending on what I get for a summer job. I'll have 2 more years in Oshawa as my course is 3 years.

I went to the CT on Taunton. I didn't even know there was another one down by the Oshawa Center.

I'm still waiting on my OSAP money so don't worry about it for now cuz I can't afford to get the tires fixed right now. But I'll pm you if I need some help when they give me the money.

Oh, and thank you for the offer.

I don't think it was mine. I don't drive to school because I'm a 15 min walk away. I live right beside Oshawa Creek Family Golf. Unless you saw it at A&P while I was grocery shopping. Other then that it mostly just sits in the driveway.
