Boys and Girls,

We all like to brag about our achievements and sweep our failures under the carpet… well, my carpet has run out of space so I’ve decided to group my failures and mistakes under Stupid Ideas of the past (so far)….

Buying 2 sets of chains for cars that have never seen the snow (or mud).

As an FYI… Snow is not a regular occurrence here in Victoria. You have to make a pilgrimage to our snowfields, 500K away, to make yellow trails.

The Stupidity is not for buying the chains or even two different sizes for the same car, but for never seeing snow and refuse to get mud on your shiny vehicle…

Furthermore, neither fit my current car!

At least I didn’t buy one for the motor bike I don’t have… yet.

yeah well what’s even worse was a friend of mine bought some chains then went skiing without making sure they fit,he gets to the mountains and needs to put them on and there too small so now he has to buy new ones at twice the price.they ask if he wants stretchers,being cheap and pissed for spending extra money he says no,the guy smiles as he drives away,soon he realizes that was a bad idea as the chains are now beating against the side of his car-lmao!
