New DL requirements!!??

O.K. I need to vent...last night two of my friends (both girls) got a flat near the Galleria. They called me to come help them fix it...in the rain! The AAA guy was gonna take three hours to get there and their bf's were not venturing out into the rain. Needless to say I drove from Manvel to the Galleria, changed their tire and got tons of "thank you's". But the sad part is, even though I tried to teach them, neither one of them still has any idea of how to change a flat...they were like "just fix it...I don't wanna learn!" I was like "well you don't need to be driving then!!!" Aparently they aren't my favorite people in the world! Guess I'm just a nice guy.

I think it needs to be a new requirement for guys and girls alike to be able to change a flat tire on three randomly selected cars before ever obtaining their driver's license.

There!

No they need to start with stuff more basic like putting air in a tire or filling up gas. I've seen a lot of girls not know how to do basic things like these

Not just the gals, because I have known a few of the male persuasion that couldn't check their own oil either.

Reminds me of the blond who misplaced her 710 cap and had to ask the mechanic for a replacement...

I knew how to change my oil in the little corolla I had and I probably could have changed the tire if needed. But now I have an 07 Tundra Crew Max, and that could be a little tricky. I need to get the boy to show me how to do it. I think it's good that every one know how to do it. Ya never know when you might be stranded by yourself!

They must of led a sheltered life! I grew up on a Ranch and knew how to put gas in everything, take care of animals and play on the tractor!
I am so glad I didn't grow up in the city!

i think the oil filter on those is mounted up high on the engine so you can actually get to it without rolling on the ground...might even be easier than your old corolla
