How to Ruin a Date | Acom Trading

By Josh Jimenez

Once upon a time, a young couple had a quarrel and this left the two angsty against each other. The guy in the relationship decided later on that the fight had to be over. He thought of the coolest and sweetest peace gift for the girl–a special ticket to a whole day of fun-filled adventure with his Wan and onLI (shameless plug)!

The day was to start at 8 am for morning drive to Museo Orlina in Tagaytay. After a two hour tour, they would have lunch at the famed Antonio’s. Following this would be a spa date for an afternoon of relaxation at the Nurture Wellness Village. After much zen and rejuvenation would be the drive home. This was a road trip and a date day to behold.

The guy drove his trusty old Corolla to the girl’s house an hour early to surprise her with the ticket. She was without a doubt impressed and broke out in tears of joy and excitement. After getting dressed and having a quick breakfast, she happily jumped into the passenger seat of the Corolla. They both drove out of the street, knowing nothing would make this day anything but the best!

…Until his rear tire popped.

The guy panicked for a second and the girl was simply quiet at their misfortune. It seems like the guy forgot to gauge the tread wear on his trusty old Corolla. His spare tire was available, but with all the frustration in the air, they both decided to call it a day and postpone.

This story is based on actual events. Misfortunes hit us and we start to curse at the sky, blaming someone or something else for our bad luck. Is it really bad luck though?

Make sure to always check your tires, your fluids, and your battery. Have a wonderful day and God bless you from Acom Trading!
