in related news, the tow guy mentioned he is looking to sell a car. '93 saturn (i believe) for 1000$. i will call him today, after taking care of lauri's car. it's not that 300 dollar car i saw on craigslist yesterday, but worth a look.
THE LEGEND CONTINUES: today i called meridian tire to see if they had wheels. the guy's like yeah, my supplier's got that, hold on! he comes back a minute later saying the dude's got them in his hand, and...... they'll be there tomorrow. i ask if there's any way they can come today, he gives me the number to gundie's [special note to gundie's: your name is dorky]. whoever i talk to there, after asking me 900 questions that i don't know and that no other places needed to ask, decides that yes they have 2 wheels and i should come get them. woo. so i drive over there, and after being told to talk to 4 different people, i am told that yes they have them.... at a different location and they'll be there tomorrow. at this point sparks started shooting out of my head, so the guy poked his computer a few more times and said oh hey we do have 2 wheels here. so fast forward to an hour and a half from now and lauri's car should be living again.
