Good to Know – How to change a tyre

A few months ago, I saw a lady in the traffic ahead of me who had clipped the corner and caused a flat tyre.

It was obvious that she knew something was wrong, but was going to keep driving, so I pulled up beside her and let her know.

Both the driver and her friend (also a lady) had no idea how to change a tyre, so I offered to teach them.

Why? because if you want to drive a car, you should know how to change a tyre (I will concede that there maybe exceptions to this statement, however, being female is not one of them).

You should know enough to get yourself out of trouble and besides, it only takes about 10 minutes. So why wait for 30 minutes to an hour for road side assistance to fix it for you?  And, if you are female, you get heaps of admiring looks from both men and women.

The women get inspired and the men are just happy that they don’t have to volunteer to change a strange woman’s tyre, AGAIN!

So the link below is a video on how to change a flat tyre.

Good to Know

This section is going to be able things which are “good to know”.

There are many things in life which people don’t realise are fairly easy to accomplish and could save them time/money.

I was intrigued the other day when I noticed a lady in traffic ahead of me had clipped the corner and caused a flat tyre. She didn’t know that she had a flat, nor did she know how to change it over for the spare. I didn’t just change the tyre for her, I taught her how to do it.

Then I realised, there have been many things in life which I have been able to teach to others and I have been relying heavily on the internet to learn what I don’t know.

This is the age of sharing knowledge and we have never had it so easy to share in the shortest possible time to the most amount of people with the least amount of investment.

I guess the first “Good to Know” should be about changing a tyre…. If only I can get the car back from my daughter.
