Why the rush? If we missed the appointment and didn't get in by the end of this week, we'd be at risk for a hefty fine.
And the place we were headed to is one busy place these days so you definitely don't want to miss your slot.
From 01 November until 30 April vehicles in the Czech Republic are required to be fitted with winter equipment. This means either winter tires or radial tires with a minimum tread depth of 4 mm.
Failure to comply results in on-the-spot fines so you don't want to be caught without them! Thus our trip to Pneuservice (otherwise known as the tire service shop!).
Is this a law in the States too?
|Yes this is a picture from today, even though it looks like it could've been taken 20 years ago!|
Notice my "a little less than high quality" photos? Ha ha! Yes, there's a reason.
After two weeks without my phone because it was sent in for repair, I got news about it today from the gal in our office who sent it in for me:
"So they delivered back your iPhone, because the Find my iPhone service is on. I was gonna try to turn it off, but it needs apple ID password – will you have a chance to stop by this week to do it?"
Aaaagggghhh! That means no phone for at least another two weeks.
I honestly miss it most for taking "on the go" photos on days like today when I don't want to have my camera...it just seems weird to take "real" photos at a place like this!
So what did I settle for instead?
My iPad! But oh did I feel funny pulling it out while waiting at the tire shop. I was trying to be sneaky so no one would see me and wonder what I was doing! You've got to admit, taking photos with an iPad just looks funny.
But I think I managed to pull it off.
Desperate times called for desperate measures!
I'm happy to say that both Dave and I are compliant with the law now, and hopefully will be safe with our "winter equipment" back on for the next six months!
