Our society is getting too soft, and it’s evidenced by how we are willing… or not… to do certain tasks.
Call me “old school” if you want, but there are things every adult… especially men… should know how to do whether they want to know or not. One of them is changing a tire. If you are 18 years of age, and you own and/or drive a vehicle, you should know how to change a tire and you should have done it at least once.
Spare me that you have AAA or some other roadside service. Don’t be so soft. Are you an independent adult, or not?
Now, once you know how, I don’t care if you use a roadside service, that’s fine. But if in a position where said service is not available you won’t be stranded and helpless.
I also believe that everyone, including women, should be routinely checking their own oil and water. It’s your vehicle, be responsible for it. Again, if you come to me and say your oil is low, ok, I’ll go fill it, but you need to be responsible and aware of your own vehicle.
