Road Side Service!



This past weekend was so great, shopping, eating, a fabulous facial and a new coach bag! But the highlight of the trip, was on our way home from Park City while driving in the fast lane in Parley's Canyon, Lynnette asked, "what is that noise?" I don't know I was wondering that myself, I thought it was the truck who was passing us, but after the truck past, I started to think, it may be my tire!!! We pull over to the side of the road, and yes indeed, it is my tire. Now what do we do, stand out by the car and look helpless? Pretend to attempt to change the tire in hopes that someone will notice we really don't know what we are doing, and come to our rescue? All these thoughts are going through my head, when suddenly I remember signing up for Chevron Road Side service a few years ago, I dig through my wallet, praying that this service hasn't expired because I don't really remember renewing it. Hallelujah! Expiration date 03/09!


I call the 800 number, when the nicest man answers the phone, are you injured, are you OK, we are SO sorry ma'am, someone will be right there!! and a half hour later I am back on the road, I am now the new spokes model for Chevron Travel Club! SO worth the money...... I was a little traumatized, so we stopped in SLC at Olive Garden for some pumpkin cheesecake, this is seasonal and they only carry it until Thanksgiving, I am telling you now, go get yourself a slice or an entire pie! You will thank me!!


On a side note, I got my prize from Mommy Madness! I was planning on taking a picture of it, but my kids attacked the candy and popcorn inside the tin! Thanks again Mommy Madness, it was really fun to get a package in the mail of Halloween goodies, my kids thank you too!!

and Thanks to Kristina who realized I had dropped off the edge of the earth!! After getting home from my girls weekend, I had a very messy house, laundry and lots of sleep to catch up on! but I am back baby! and yes, these are the only photos I took of my weekend!! forget all the fun, I caught the drama on camera, this is a photo of my friend Lynnette, it was FREEZING in the canyon while the guy was changing the tire, and yeah he probably thought I was nuts taking photos of him changing my tire, all for the sake of blogging!

Sounds like a great time! I had free roadside assistance from Hyundai on my previous car, because they didn't want me to join in the group fun and sue them. It came in handy when I locked my keys in my car, more than once. I mean, when Adam locked my keys in the car, of course.

That is another one of my biggest fears, having car trouble when I'm on my own. I really wouldn't know what to do.
Don't forget to renew in April.

We are all glad you had your camera to document the event, you are a true blogger!

I love how blogging is now my official excuse to truly document my own life....it is brilliant!

And the mention of that pumpkin cheesecake is just mean. SOunds good!

all trauma is best treated with cheesecake. I think that's actually in a manual somewhere.

Kristal said...

OK, I'm pretty jealous of your little getaway...but good for you!

I'm glad you had that roadside service. If I had been driving past I would have stopped and offered to help. I learned how to change a tire in YW.

I have nothing...I get to attempt all by my lonesome, or with my Mom a few times..yeah 2 clueless people. One time a nice man did help us out...we were in the Wendy's parking lot so I wasn't too scared he was a psycho!!

Fun! I want a girls weekend/night out! Closest thing to it will be this Friday in Salt Lake.. but my husband will be there with us. Oh well.

So, I forgot to add your new address to my blogroll and I couldn't figure out why you hadn't posted. Then you did and I clicked and it was the post about Solee and I looked at your address and realized Oopsey! I'm sorry I've been absent from your blog lately!

I now know why :( I'm a forgetful loser.

My favorite part is how you took a picture of the event. I'm always a fan of memorializing everything.

And I'm going to Olive Garden today and totally going to try that cheesecake!

Erin The Great said...

Good to have you back! I'm really glad you made it home alive because the Utah weather is abnormally cold for this time of year...sorry my comment sucks. I'm not too creative in the morning ;)

Hi Wendy, Like I said, I hope you pursue SKIRT. You are a natural. Remember me when you are richer and more famous!

Brittany said...

I love that you took a picture of the guy changing your tire. LOL!!

I'm SO bent on taking a picture of the guy who sings and plays his guitar in his convertible in our parking lot. For blogging purposes, of course.

hey Wendy,you had the closest to correct guess on "Name that Household Item". E-mail me at
favepairobluejeans at gmail dot com to tell me how to get you your Uncrustables sandwich container and coupon for a free 4 pack of uncrustables.
