2 smashed windows since February 2016.
2 flat tires since April.
Conclusion: owning a car in California is just stupid. At the very least it's much more expensive to drive your car daily than to to just have it in case you need to go somewhere.
So yeah. I missed work yesterday because after I finished my run I was stretching by my car and heard the tell tale hiss. There was another piece of metal shoved deep in the tread, making it unrepairable. RIP 2 month old tire. And I have to get a new spare immediately with my track record; it's only going to be another few weeks before I find another deflated tire.
Money, money, money.
