Schedule: Run downtown to drop off job application at lawfirm, run home to meet with mom at 11:00, mom wants to use some of my computer applications. Wrap up for job interview at 3:00.
Get downtown. Drop off application. Distinctive "thwap thwap thwap" of a tire problem.
Bolt rammed into tire. Tire goes flat.
Jack set does not have adequate tools to repair tire.
Adequate tools retrieved. spare tire "doughnut" is dangerously flat. Have to limp to tire store or endanger job interview. Time: 10:00.
Mom's celphone is turned off. Crap.
Have not yet set up computer workstation at home for mom's use. Screen saver, rotating wallpaper, both set to Furry Art, which has a very high level of hardcore gay furry pr0ns. Oops.
Problem: Housemate at home able to let mom into house, but does not necessarily respond to phone calls. Crap.
Bigger problem: ...and mom's bringing a priest with her.
All issues resolved without explosion, but this was rather a unique confluence of problems :)
