Cue sad music.

I forgot to mention this, and Nicoal rightly thought it deserved its own entry.

The other day, I went to Les Schwab because my tire was low. I don't know if I mentioned that in here before. My right rear tire was almost flat, so I drove it to the truck shop at work and had someone put air in it so I could make it to Les Schwab OK, and then when I got there they took the tire off and looked for a leak and couldn't find it. They put the tire back on and sent me on my way, and I didn't have to pay them anything, which is awesome.

Then yesterday when Nicoal and I stopped at the Indian place by my house for some lunch, I walked around the back end of the car to go inside and noticed that my hubcap is gone! It could be in Philomath, or in Albany, or in Corvallis somewhere... so it's almost futile to go out looking for it. I've never lost a hubcap before. I'm sad! :(

Re: Call 'Em?
"Truck stop"? I guess you said "truck shop", didn't you? So, did they take it off when you went over there for air? I'd guess your truck shop isn't used to dealing with hubcaps, but Les Schwab is, so it's unlikely they'd forget to put it back on (if they did take it off in the first place!) Or maybe it fell off when you went careening around the corner to make it to Starbucks before they closed...

Yeah, the truck shop is where they repair the forklifts and other machines at the mill, heh. They didn't take the hubcap off, but I know LS did because I watched them. They took the whole wheel off and took it in the back and then brought it back and put it back on.

Where else would I find hubcaps? They don't have to be new but I'd like 'em all to match...
