    Default joey m lucky and thankful to be alive

    so i'm driving back to work after lunch yesterday on the I10 doing about 75 when my front right tire just fuckin decides to shred itself. i hear a loud bang and am like !!!!!!!!!!!

    i begin to tap my brakes so people can see i am in trouble. put my signal on, hold the wheel like a mofo, and guide my baby over to the side. when i got out, half the tire was gone, just ripped off. fucking tires are only a year old too. in the desert, tires get eaten up cuz of the heat. lucky my shit didn't flip or anything and my reflexes were quick.

    bout 6 weeks ago one of my co-workers was diangosed with lung and brain cancer. he was given 4-6 months to live and is in a hospice already. he's incoherent already and legs are like toothpicks. he was my best employee, and a great human being. his name is ed

    and a week ago last saturday, my sister had the unfortunate timing of finding her father-in-law dead in his bedroom at their home. he passed away peacefully in his sleep after docs discovered he had cancer again great fuckin guy.

    so, i'm thankful i'm still here walking around. thankful i have my health. thankful i still have my dad.

    go n hug yer folks, kids, friends, wives, husbands, whoever. say a prayer tonight and thank God u have what you have, regardless if you think you need more or not. life is good peeps.

    It's great to hear everything is okay with you man. It's always a wake up call when others around you show their mortal side, but it just makes us all appreciate the good times more. May you have many good times and toast to those who have already had theirs
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    Same thing happened to me a few months back. I was doing 80 mph and approaching my exit. Just as I started to slow down to get off, boom, right front tire. I managed to get over to the side of the road alongside the exit ramp. Thirty seconds earlier and I would have been stuck on the side of the highway itself.

    Life is fragile. I thank Jesus every day for my life, I consider myself to be a VERY fortunate person.

    Why Jesus? Not trying to start a war or anything, just curious. Why not God?

    Glad to hear that you are okay there big fella!

    Scary shit. I think most of us have been in a situation where a couple of feet or even inches were the difference between not getting hurt, or barely getting hurt and hurt badly or possibly killed.

    It sounds like you've had a lot on your plate here lately. Hang in there bro!

    I think somebody's cruising from thread to thread, just looking for a fight. Anybody else get that impression?

    I kinda get the impression you're refering to me, but I'm really not looking for a fight anywhere...

    I hate to hear about front tires blowing out. I'm not too keen on those situations. Glad to hear that everyone's alright.

    And, like OLO, I thank God every day for my life.
