When we had a flat tire, what should we do?

When my friend and I were going to attend the Valentine luncheon
organized by the women's club I belong to the last week,
my friend came to my house to pick me up. Then she
found out she had a flat tire on her rear end of the car.

She told me, "You have to drive to the winery for the luncheon".

Our luncheon was going to be held at the old winery. If my friend
was going to drive, I was thinking to sip one or two glasses
of wine. Now, I had to drive, I better not to drink at all. OK.

After the luncheon, we came back to my house and
she called AAA roadside service to exchange the flat tire with
the spare. It took about 30 minutes before the man
came to replace the tire.

I told this story to my husband and he said that
my Cadillac, XTS could keep driving to the dealer or
tire stores without changing the tire when I get a
flat tire.

Why? My car has a turbocharger and it is considered as a sports car.
He said, "Just like my Corvette." My XTS is equipped with very
good run tires just like sport cars. That makes it possible to drive
for a while with a flat tire.

I'm glad to know that. I don't need to call the roadside
service and wait on the freeway or wherever for 30 minutes.
Somewhat that seems easier for me. Doesn't it?

Anyway, my friend tasted two glasses of white wine,
two glasses of red wine and even desert wine. Me?
No drink at all! I was a simply her driver that day.

私も、運転をしていたとき(今は、ペーパードライバーです。)パンクこそありませんでしたが、脱輪とかしてJAFを呼んでサービスを受けました。待つ時間が本当に長かったです。

ご主人様が幼い頃から憧れて今所有されているCorvetteは,パンクを物ともせずに走れて素晴らしい車ですね。

今回は,バレンタインのランチで,アルコールが飲めなくて残念でしたね。日本では,宴会の時など、代わりに運転してくれる代行サービスがありますが,アメリカは,ないのでしょうか。
もしくは、お店が小さいバスで迎えに来てくれるとか。
日本的発想かもしれませんが。。。

ウーバー

ウーバーを使うようです。ただ、今回は、全てがちょっと狂ってしまいました!がっかりでした。皆さん、ワイン一杯くらいは、心配しないで、飲むようですが、私は、小柄なので、人が運転する時のみ飲むのです。ああそれなのに〜、でした。
