This morning, I got a flat on my commute. I then noticed my tire levers were at home. I was able to get the tire on without the levers (and now have the blisters to prove it).
But, I had never used my CO2 inflator thingy. Tried to use it this morning, no such luck. The dumb thing didn't even work.
I called my fiance to see if she could come by, about 5 miles off her route to work to bring my pump so I could fill up and go the rest of the way to work. She agreed, and found me stranded on the corner with my bike.
Who needs ladys of foo, I've got one right at home :-]
