Default car troubles are a pain to have

It started about a week ago. I heard a high pitched screem that would come and go. I thought maybe it was due to the weather and cold season comming on. Then my son borrowed my truck to move a new sofa he had bought at a going-out-of-business sale.When he brought it back he said 'your brakes are worn and rubbing metal to metal'. Well the next day Saturday On my way to the coffee shop ,I listened and didn't hear anything. So I figured it was just the weather. It does effect some trucks. The rest of the week was ok ,no noyze (sic) or anything out of the ordinary
until Friday when all of a sudden I heard the worst godawful grinding you could imagine. Wow I said .After I had my coffee and returned home I inspected where the noyze came from and this is what I found

Like having a bad dream and waking up to find you're not sleeping

Right front brake rotor is only half there. How in the h___ did that happen without my hearing it? I aint figured that out yet.It's going to cost about $400 to repair it. New rotors,brakes, calipers and bearings and labor.
Today my son replaced everything and it only cost me $187.00 due to the fact he used some of his influence with area parts stores and he does a lot of business with them being a State Certified Automotive Mechanic.
I did try to make it worth his while but had to yell at him to accept it.:D
just wasting time today with nothing to do.
