Kneeling Pads Would Have Been Real Knee Savers!Posted on: October 2nd, 2012 by Chris Aviles
Knee savers would have saved my knees!!! It’s really dumb that I work here and have access to all these great floor mats and other products and don’t use them all. I’ll tell you why… This last weekend was what Southern Californians referred to as Carmageddon. Basically the freeway that connects 2 major cities, with at least 374,000 cars traveling on it every day, was closed for construction. This forced people to find alternate routes, potentially causing major congestion.
On Sunday I took one of the alternate routes and luckily didn’t have too much trouble with traffic, but I did get a flat! Ordinarily I wouldn’t care because I could just sit in my car listening to music until AAA got there. Unfortunately for me I was on my way to a dinner party and had to pick somebody up on the way, so I was forced to fix it.
Here’s where I could kick myself… I had to kneel in my pants, so I laid down a towel to protect them from getting dirty. Smart..right? Wrong. I could feel the little rocks stabbing me on the ground which is enough reason to want extra protection. What I didn’t realize is that the rocks were breaking skin and causing me to bleed just a little, right thru my khaki pants!!! I was furious! No time to change, and I have such easy access to the one thing I could have used, a simple little kneeling pad! What I am so angry about is I sell kneeling pads every day! Sorry for the non-informative blog.. I just needed to vent!
