I hate July

I thought I would do some venting...

I would like to take the month of July, stick a few fireworks in it, and watch it blow up....

Here is my reasoning for the well deserved hatred...

1 - My dishwasher blew up... not just quietly quit and peacefully exit the home... the pump went bad and it spewed water everywhere in the kitchen...

cost - $400 for a brand spanking new one (and it runs good so far)



2 - My E90 had a slow leak in one front tire. Got it 'patched' at my local tire place. One week later, the tire almost dismounts from the rim. Car gets towed to dealership. New tire on

cost - $350 for tire and mounting (including CCA discount)


3 - Today... I get a nail in my rear tire on my E90. This happens to be the wonderful tire that has been on national backorder for 2 months, and there is still no ETA on its arrival. Luckily the nail is in the center of the tread, and Ive barely driven 5 miles on it. Dealership patching it tomorrow.

Estimated cost - probably $50 or so, and will probably need a new tire in the not too distant future, so add another $400 for that sucker...

4 - Home improvement project... completely re-landscaping the backyard. No problems yet, but a lot of back breaking work and $$$ for materials...

Cost to date - $350





Can I have one peaceful week where I dont have to drop big dollars for this that and the other thing??? Is it too much to ask...


July... I would like to tell you that you suck. Thank you.

Bavarian, I suggest you start taking the longer route home from work instead of the quicker route next to the machine shops and the Virginia Nail Factory.

As you recall, I had posted on the DC chat thread that SOL and weird things happens during summer months. Now I see you share the same sentiments

Ever wonder why you get so many flats in the US? Why are the roads littered with nails??? My guess is the careless disposal/transportation of rubbish removed from construction projects, crap just dumped in the back of a pickup which works its way out on a dump run....I had my front window smashed one day from a half-pound rock that fell off a bulldozer (that was filthy - had just come off a muddy site) that the idiot just drove up onto a open flatbed....never ceases to amaze me the idiocy you see out on the highways...

Heheh - my first flat actually took place on the street next to Big-O-Tires. Coincidence? Perhaps. That nail went in clean and perfectly.

Let me guess. You sell dishwashers, sell and patch car tires, and do landscaping in Northern Virginia, right?
