Default Just feet from disaster

I almost got to witness my front left wheel come off the truck and go down the road. My wheel bearing was going out and I drove my truck anyway. It start this morning when I woke up. Me and Dad got into an arguement this morning, so I said to hell with asking him to use his Tacoma. I got mad and left for work. On the way to work my truck sounded like 10 different kinds of bad. Well, on the back the ABS light came on and it wasn't stopping real well. When I was getting to the outskirts of town my truck was drifting to the right then jerking to the left. When I pulled it over at an old gas station and looked at it, the left front was close to coming off! I was relieved to get it home on a trailer and finally get my bearings! Thank god nothing major happened.
