Four flats in 40+ years - three 'foreign' objects spiking the tyre; one where the valve stem 'melted'!!
To the other extreme; Admittedly it was when I worked on a Seismic Survey Crew in the Aussie Outback (otherwise known as the GAFA) driving Toyota Landcruiser Diesel Utes, that I once set a record;

Seven flat tyres on one 12 hour working day!

And of course you had to fix them yourself at the end of the day's work!

When fixing the seventh and final one of the day; From splitting the rim to throwing the repaired wheel onto the back of my ute was timed, independently, at precisely seven minutes!
