The voice mail went like this:
"This is Jerry at the dealership and your wheel is ready to go. We'll be open until 6:30 tonight for you to pick it up. Have a good evening."
This was great news. Unfortunately the dealership is near my office and I had just arrived at home. I checked my watch and instantly knew that by the time I could leave to pick it up they would be closed. It would have to wait until the morning. Bummer.
Another bummer moment came to me this morning: I'm busy tonight from 6:00 to about 10:00 and won't have time to mount the wheel until Friday night.
Hey, Boss, I think I'm feeling a little under the weather (due to riding withdrawal) and might have to take tomorrow off (to replace my wheel).
I'm sure I'll be feeling better by mid morning (especially after I ride to work).
Can you get by without me for a few hours?
