Damn tire tubes!

It was pretty slow at work today, but I didn't mind. It was kinda nice to get a bit of a break. But then near the end of the day, I got a flat tire right when I had a bunch of stuff to do. That pissed me off, but I had a spare tube on me so I thought it would be a simple matter of swapping out the old tube for the new one. As I was installing the new tube, I noticed a bit of tube getting pinched as I got the last of the tire on the rim. Sure enough, when I tried to pump up my tire, the air just when straight back out again. Pinch flat. Now I was really mad. Which didn't help when I went to MEC afterwards because I was so angry, I screwed up again and gave myself another pinch flat with the third tube. I finally got a tube installed properly when I took the time to be real careful that the tube wouldn't get pinched. I kinda pumped it up real hard, I hope it doesn't explode. Mmmm, maybe I should let some air out just in case....
Anyway, that was my shitty day. I'm off to slash my wrists now.
