My F$%^ing tire fell off

driving down the road last night i heard a loud clicking noise and felt my driverside front tire kind tilt, so i pulled over and figured out that my ******* were well done, i was a block away from the house,so i figured i could make it home,so i continue driving, i hear 3 more clicks, my truck lifts up then colapses, tire layin in the middle of the road, and my frontend in the dirt, yea so, guess what broke.....

i've heard similar noises while driving before and come to find out it was loose lugs. i had my tires rotated and they said to tighten the lugs after x amount of miles (i forget how far) and i never did. so sure enough thats what was making the noise.
