Showed my daughter how to change the tire on her car today. (Her husband is out of town.) I had her do a bunch of the work, explaining precautions along the way. She said it was easier than she thought it would be. We did have the great advantage of doing it in a dry warm space - namely her building's garage.
But... how did I fail to show her this before? Now I'm wondering if my son knows how to do it.
During my lifetime, knowing how has actually become less important. Nowadays, with cell phones, you can usually just call someone.
But when your tire loses its air,
it's good to know how to put on the spare.
