Thanks, Friendly KIA Guys

There's nothing quite so great as a flat tire on a blizzardy day. (Yeah, blizzardy.) Fortunately, Kirk had warned me that the jack in my car was damaged, so when I realized my tire was flat I quickly racked my brain for options. 1) Pull over to the side of the street and be helpless until someone brought me a working jack. 2) Call Kirk and make him come rescue me. 3) Try to make it to the KIA dealership I knew was just off the freeway exit and hope for some help and a dry spot to park the car. I went with option 3, and I was not disappointed. I parked my car under a sales tent and went into the service department with my damaged jack to ask for help. The nice service manager sent a guy out with a lift who changed my tire for me. I know I'm perfectly capable of doing it myself (and I've even done it in the snow before), but not without a working jack. So, thanks to the friendly guys at KIA for turning my crisis into little more than a hiccup in my day.

Ya know...KIA drivers, although slow and dangerous behind the wheel, seem to have an amazing bond amongst themselves. Sounds like their commercials are really true.
