I was going to drop my car off at the mechanic's, to have my smashed window replaced ($275). I wanted to ride my bicycle home.

I pumped up the tires, which I always do, because I like low rolling resistance. I took my clipless pedals off, and put the original flat pedals on, because my shoes that work with my clipless pedals were among the things stolen from my car.

As I was walking from my car to the mechanic's office, I heard a hissing noise. One of my bicycles tubes had, in the previous ~3 minutes, sprung a substantial leak.

So I walked home.

22 minutes, no hardship. And I keep the means to replace a tube on my bike, I just didn't feel it was worth it. I just think it's hilarious. And awesome that it didn't happen while I was riding. I think I've had three flats since I got this bike, and none were while I was riding.
