You are absolutely right, courageous. No excuses.
I asked SWMBO what happened, and all I got in reply was a wide eyed look of innocence and a shrug. I asked her if she had been checking the tires once a week like I suggested, and I got "welll, sort of. I check the left side, but i never check the right because it is hard to get to it with all the snow at the curb, and stuff." Guess which tire blew?
I should have been monitoring whether she was monitoring her tires.
Something tells me she simply hastened the demise of a dying tire by hitting a pothole.
