My tire pressure light came on in my dashboard driving to work today. I pulled into the parking lot at my job and checked out my tires and sure enough I had somehow managed to run over a nail. My boss told me to go to Discount Tire because if the tire isn’t flat chances are it’s in a spot that can be repaired. So that’s how I spent the first part of my morning. Three things about today’s experience:
- It took an hour to do.
This is because there were 4 other customers in front of me yet they were still able to take care of me within the hour.
- Workers were friendly and efficient.
In the hour as was sipping coffee and watching everyone not a single employee was just standing around…everyone was working on something. It took them a few minutes to take care of the people in front of me before I even got to the counter but they made sure to greet me and assured me that they would be right with me soon.
- IT WAS FREE!
I really thought I was going to have to come out of pocket for the repair but it didn’t cost me a dime! They did try to offer me a warranty for all of my tires considering they were all relatively new but I decided to opt out of the warranty. If I do end up having tire problems again within the next 6 months, I may have to consider it though.
Overall it was a fantastic experience – I made it a point to not stress and just get it done so I’m really glad it all worked out. 🙂
