Managers Under Pressure

, , , , , | Working | November 30, 2020

I get some new tires for my mini SUV. On the way home, the ride is bouncier than ever. I check the pressure, which is at twice the value on the door sticker. I call the store.

Me: “Hi. I just bought some tires there, and I was wondering why you would use fifty psi for an 1800-pound vehicle?”

Manager: “Um, because that’s what it says on the side of the tire?”

Me: “You do know what ‘max load rating’ means, right?”

Manager: “Uhhh… If you come back, we’ll let some air out of the tires for you.”

Me: “I’ve got it, thank you.”

I still buy tires there, because they seem honest and generally do a good job. You just have to check afterward.
