Answer: 

Yes, unfortunately some decks are not built with curb grinding in mind, so heavy use for a couple of months is not abnormally quick to grind through the dropouts. The new Phoenix Session decks were redesigned to combat this problem and I'm sure several other models were as well. Concrete is very hard on aluminum.
