Crap Day

I just wanted to post a pointless thread of how my day ended.

My brothers gf, was on her way to our house for a birthday party. she got a flat tire. Me and my brother jumped in my truck for the 30 minute drive to change it. I haul *** down the turn pike, going about 80-90, hit the strobes and pull over to help. Well her AAA tow truck got there at the same time wasted trip... He changes the tire, we bull**** with him. Well my truck is on the eastbound side, her car is on the westbound side. I go up to the next exit to turn around, As I am getting ready to turn, going about 30 and slowing. my right front tire feels like it fell off, and the truck is skidding and not turning. I get out and look at it is facing the wrong way. My brand new tie rod, came out... the nut is gone, so is the cotter pin... I cant get it back in with the tools i had, dont carry a puller. I have her call the tow truck back, and after 3 hours i am back home from my good deed
