The Diary of the Phantom Tire Buyer #82

A Web Log from A Phantom Tire Buyer with a Secret Identity

My neighbor Brandon is quite the boating enthusiast.  I was strolling by his home on my nightly constitutional when I happened across Brandon as he polished his new ski boat. 

“Greetings Brandon!”

“Oh, hiya Phantom!”

“I’m a Phantom Tire Buyer with a secret identity.” 

“I know.  We’re neighbors.”

“Say, Brandon, that new lake vessel of yours looks quite nifty.  It’s a Mastercraft, isn’t it?”

“So, you know your boats?”

“It says Mastercraft in great big letters on the front.”

“That’s called the bow.”


“And I observe that those Coopers you bought for your Tahoe from Chevrolet are holding up nicely!  Perfectly even treadwear!”

“Well, Tire Discounters aligned the wheels at no charge…”

“UH OH!” 


“Your trailer tires!  My God Brandon!  They’ve had it!”

“My trailer…?’

“Look man!  They’re worn down to the nubs!”

“Holy crap, you’re right!  Hey Phantom, does Tire Discounters carry trailer tires?”

“Such a great question!  Of course Tire Discounters carries trailer tires.  You have over 35,000 to choose from!”

“I guess I should pay them a visit.”

“Yes, I guess you SHOULD.”

“Sorry buddy.”

“That’s okay.  I’m not angry.  Disappointed, but not angry.”
