Ok I got another flat tire. I swear I don't know how I keep doing this. He has had to change 2 flats in the past 2 weeks and the last one was a new tire he took back to the one that sold it to us and got another one. Now this one is flat. I can never get the stupid thing off the thingy that holds it up to the car so he has to change them and it is really cold. Seriously I do not know how this keeps happening I am not running over glass and there is no glass or anything where I park. I know he is going to give me that look of "should you really be driving a car"*L* He was very sweet and understanding about the last two but not thinking he is going to buy uummm I don't know how it got flat this time. I wish I could fix it without telling him. Any ideas how to break it to him gently?

well it sounds like someone is trying to upset you. have you thought about someone going and letting the air out of the tire by the valve. You know the thingy that puts the air in the tire? it sounds like someone might be letting the air out. Is it the same tire on the same side of the car? The one that you keep changing? Just tell him about what happened and then park your car in a different parking spot away from where you normally park. If the tire ends up flat again then you know that someone is definitly trying to get you all upset over it. Be careful with the car though you never know who it could be.

Oh my gosh I never thought about that. I can be so stupid sometimes. We went through a time where the inside light kept being left on and the van would not start the next day. I told him that I deliberatly checked the lights before getting out since it was happening so much. Then one night he and I were both in the van and I laughed and said you didn't check to make sure the light was off inside. He turned around and looked and I said not to worry checking is a habit of mine now I had already looked. The next morning the light was on. From that point we started locking the van after we were in for the night and no more trouble. Who the heck is messing with me.. Thank you thank you for reminding me of this.
