    I am curious, ladies, how many of you girls know how to change a tire on your car or truck? Men, feel free to answer for the ladies in your life.

    Last time I had a flat, I called someone to rescue me and they told me it wasn't that hard and I could do it myself. I am a very capable woman, but I got pretty upset over that and was wondering how common this knowledge is among women.

    Looking into AAA...

    I know how....

    .... wear the right mini skirt with the right heels, smile demurely, and wave for help.

    I'm sure I COULD change a tire... but then again, why would I want to when I can get someone else to do it for me?

    Capable, yes, perfectly capable to figure out a way to get it done without getting my hands dirty. I'm a firm believer in "if you've got the tools, use 'em". My tools just didn't come from Sears. [​IMG]

    I had a 2 year old and a 2 month old in the car, it was the middle of December in northern Indiana, I had no cell phone, and a flat tire. Luckily, the cover on the tire well of my car had instructions on it, so I taught myself. It was also a Friday night and I was in town. Not one person stopped to see if I needed help until I was almost done with it. So yeah, I learned the hard way how to do it, and also learned not to cut corners too closely when the concrete divider hasn't been smoothed out on a new road [​IMG]

    I know how to put my own chains on too, but I will pay someone $20 to do it for me. Push comes to shove, mama can take of herself.
