You know you’re on the 118 when…

This phone conversation just took place between two of my coworkers:

C: Dude, what’s up?

H: I’m hoping you can help me out. I got a flat tire and I’m stuck here on the side of the 118.

C: Don’t you have a spare?

H: I do, but you need a special tool to get it off. I think I need a ride to the dealership.

C: Well I was just heading out…

H: Wait a minute, some guy is stopping. Maybe he can help…. He’s getting out of his car…

H: Oh, never mind. He’s just taking a piss.

  1. isn’t the “special tool” usually in the tire or hidden under the carpeting in your trunk?

    But anyway — call the Freeway Service Patrol. They will do it for you.
