Don't get a flat in Albuquerque. - F*cking with Clusters

About Don't get a flat in Albuquerque.

Previous Entry Don't get a flat in Albuquerque. Feb. 25th, 2020 @ 03:45 pm Next Entry
Albuquerque effectively has 3 types of people:

* Natives: The people who live in the sticks and drive big well-used pickup trucks
* Students/Hippies: People who flock around Downtown/Central. Tend to drive either a Japanese car or an ancient Volkswagen.
* Business folk: Rich Republicans who live in NE and drive spotless waxed Lexus SUVs and pick-ups.

Sadly, there is a type left out of this:

* Anyone who drives a tiny little Volvo.

As a result, it appears that the nearest place I can get a tire to replace the one I blew this morning is _Pheonix_ (A comfortable 6 hour drive away). Time to go find a man with a knack for duct tape.

That's a funny sound :-P

Its all better now. I talked (and paid) the guy at a tire shop into getting one driven over for me, and it was here by 10 this morning! I'm all tired up.

Man, and I thought just having to drive through Albequerque with no idea of where the hotel was, 10 hours after leaving Claremont, was bad enough.

That sounds worse, actually. At least I managed to get out of the snow and wobble the car back to the apartment.

I was about 2/3 of the way through your post before I realized that you weren't talking about apartment-hunting...

:-P ... my post would sound the same if I were, I'm sure, except that I live in the pompous Republican area. The student area is a cool place to visit, but I've grown rather attached to ..say .. heat, carpets, windows, etc.

Dude! What's he doing there? I'll have to look him up next time I'm driving through.
