Throw that damn thing away.

I was going to rotate my tires, but the lug nuts are on so tight that I can't move them. Shit. They're supposed to be torqued to only 95 ft/lb. Monday I'll go back to the shop and ask them to loosen the lugs.

This was a big complaint among my Midas customers. They'd have brake work done and then experienced a flat. Often, they couldn't loosen their lugs. I was hit with towing and service bills. I'd tell my guys over and over to watch out when tightening lugs. They paid no attention.

Anybody got a breaker bar? A length of thin pipe would work, too. Or if you have an impact gun, I have a small compressor.

A buddy last night suggested a little heat. Why didn't I think of that? Anyway, the wheels are rotated.

Seen Pritchard Park lately? My God.
