Going round in circles to get a wheel working.

Today's task was to acquire a wheel for Mum's wheelchair. She managed to bust one of the tires earlier in the week, so I was told to go to a few shops to see if they had any inner tubes. I was a little apprehensive about this so tried to find their phone number, so I could guarantee they had a tire. After a search on yell.com we found the number and Mum called them. She was told they'd have one of these tires there...

But nope, not today. None about, anyway. But they gave Mum a number to try. So she tried that number and got passed on again. And again.

At the eighth call she found someone that did have stock of this fabled inner tube! It was the first shop she called, but a different, cleverer assistant picked up the phone, thankfully.
