There are some things in life that we’ll never know how to do. Like taxes. And most of us have accepted this fact. But changing a car tire really shouldn’t be one of these things.
Why should we know how to change a tire?
Isn’t it bizarre that we’re allowed to operate these heavy pieces of machinery (cars) every day and yet most of us don’t know the basics if something should happen? It should be mandatory to at least know how to change a tire. But instead, most of us sit around and need to wait for help.
Most people in today’s world believe that they don’t need to know how to change a tire because they can just look it up on the internet. But what if your phone is dead and you don’t have a car charger or power bank? Now you’re stuck on the side of the road and you can’t even call for help.
Safety is obviously the main reason to know how to change a tire. It really isn’t ideal to be stuck on the side of a road somewhere, especially (and unfortunately) if you’re a woman. And even with help, you still want to get moving as soon as possible.
Everything you need is in your car
Safety reasons aside, why wait for someone to come and help you when you can just do it yourself? Every single tool you need to change a tire is literally in your car. All you have to do is learn how to use them.
Now when someone asks you who changed your tire, you get to answer like the strong, independent woman you are: “What, like it’s hard?”
