    If your last name is Dolittle or Pepper, would you feel added pressure to go to medical school?

    Went on a first date with a new girl last night (humblebrag) and I kinda hope she’s the one just for the stories. “Yea so we met during a global pandemic and had to wear masks to get into a tent to get drinks in a parking lot it was awesome”

    So I just found out that it’s possible for humans to be born 2+ months after your 9 month due date. :shocked:

    Welp, got up to go to work this morning and noticed some strange noises going on with my car. Pulled over and there's a nail in my tire :ohdear:

    Tire seems to be getting pretty flat so I drove back to my apartment and took my girlfriend's car to work.

    Never had this happen before. What are my best options here?

    No way they fix that. Just bite the bullet and buy a full new set. I bought my last set at discount tire and they offer fixes/replacement and maintenance for the life of the tires. I’m a Pirelli fan fwiw.

    I'm 30. Somehow has never happened to me before. It's crazy because I drove over 100 miles on the interstate getting back home last night. Not sure when it happened but glad I didn't blow my tire on the interstate or some shit.

    A few years back, I had to patch a couple tires within a few months. Here was the last one:

    I was taught a very long time ago and might be able to figure it out but don't want to risk it. Never actually had to do it before.

    I have statefarm roadside assistance so I'm going to call them after work and get them out to change it. Might as well get something out of paying this bullshit every month.

    2+ months after your 9 month due date. So instead of being born at 40 weeks, some people were born at 48 weeks

    Got a spare on her. Couldn’t miss much time today from work so drove my girlfriends car there. Got an appt at a tire place tomorrow at 5:30. Gonna drive her car to work again tomorrow as I am sketched out about driving on a spare on the interstate. Shit Monday overall would not recommend.
