The Diary of the Phantom Tire Buyer #84

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

My neighbor Megan stopped by while walking her dog the other day, when was I was in the driveway of the lair checking the tire pressure on the Phantomobile.

“Hi,” she said.

“Oh, hello Megan, my good neighbor.  I’m a Phantom Tire Buyer with a secret identity!”

“I know, Phantom, you really don’t have to introduce yourself every time we see each other.”

“Yes, I’m sometimes accused of being overly formal.”

“Hey, you know about cars, right?”

“Yes, I know a bit.  And Chip Wood, founder and chairman of Tire Discounters, is a close personal friend.”

“Oh, well, Tire Discounters can’t help me with this.”

“No?”

“I’ve got a crack in my windshield.  I’m gonna call those guys on TV.”

“WHAT!  Megan, Tire Discounters offers comprehensive glass repair!  And you plan to call on a perfect stranger?” 

“I didn’t know…”

“You know you can trust Tire Discounters!”

“I know that.  I just didn’t know they did glass.”

“Please.  Don’t call someone you’ve never met and will never see again.  Call our friends at Tire Discounters.”

“Better yet, maybe I’ll just stop by the store.” 

“Better than better yet!  Call them and they’ll come to you at no additional charge!”

“Really?”

“Really.”

“But my yard’s kind of a mess.”

“They won’t concern themselves with that.”

“You sure?”

“Trust me on that.  And trust Tire Discounters!”
