Tyre Repair Deception

Have you ever been caught doing something you shouldn’t be doing? I have… just yesterday to be precise. 

I was driving home around 6pm from my other girlfriend’s house (I don’t believe in monogamy although my wife does, so I keep my girlfriend a secret) when one of my tyres popped. I didn’t have a spare on me and so I had to call the local mechanic. Moorabbin isn’t where I usually get my car serviced, which I thought would be a good thing. I thought they could just change my tyre and I could get back on the road. My wife thought I was at work and was expecting me home for dinner at 7pm, and I really couldn’t afford to miss it. I didn’t want to get caught and risk either of my relationships, and so I wanted to make a swift exit out of the mechanic shop as soon as possible. Of course, that didn’t happen.

Would you believe that because it wasn’t my regular workshop, they had to call my regular place to get all the special details about my car? Would you believe that my regular workshop then called my wife, who is the technical owner of the car, and asked to clarify the details with her?

I got caught cheating on my wife because I needed a tyre repair in Moorabbin. It’s safe to say she wasn’t happy, which is why I didn’t want her to know in the first place. I’m very disappointed because my relationship with my wife is now ruined. She threatened to tell my girlfriend that I’m married and all of this happened because I didn’t have a spare tyre. 

There are two morals to this story:

  1. Always carry a spare tyre on you.
  2. Go to your regular mechanic if you’re doing something you aren’t supposed to be.

I bet you were expecting one of the morals of the story to be about remaining a monogamist if you committed to that with marriage. However, that is not the moral of this story.
