it wasnt some tire pump fest, two people flatted, i gave away a tube to one and fixed the other with patch kits. we didn't notice it was a double puncture, so we had to patch it a second time.

its not that far to the pretzel factory or whatever. so i am an existentialist. **** happens, be prepared. but the best part was the ire i was getting from people as i sped off. long post sorry sorry.
pretty sure you were the one who flatted at second and vine and called babychris to bring a pump yesterday. my pump, that was in my bag. it got you home, but you could have walked. you expected friends to help and they did. solidarity. way to keep the solidarity moving. people wouldn't have looked at you like an ******* if you weren't being an *******. attitude like you had last night is the thing that is going to keep people from helping YOU when YOU flat, but i will probably still show solidarity and help because, well, i'm not an *******.

long story short, you were wrong. you complain about the pretzel ride turning into a race, and then last night you were the only one who couldn't wait. stop being selfish and show a sense of community.

but according to your previous logic, you shouldn't have expected a friend to help you and would have just walked home anyways.

just admit you were being an ass and this can go away. until then, you're an ******* and made a stupid, unjustified decision with poor logic and expected everybody to be cool with it. all you gotta do is man up and apologize. the reason i'm so pissed about this is ashley, dane, and i got ditched last week helping somebody else fix a flat. i just figured you didn't see us in the corner last week, but this week there was no not seeing it. when i flatted, we waited for me. why should it be different when the person with the flat isn't your friend/roommate? it shouldn't.
