Last Sunday, I was casually driving on some nice and empty KL roads.
I love those kind of weekend drives. Nice, relaxing... soothing.. gives you the best opportunity to listen to some of your nice classical music... unlike the kind of traffic we face on weekdays like this.
When suddenly... an idiot spoilt my drive by tail-gating me to the max.
I slowed down and kept to the left lane to allow him to overtake when he came up to my right side and started honking me, staring at me and pointing at me.
I shouted to myself
"WHAT?!?!? WHAT DA FARK?!?! JUST GO LAR DAMMIT!!!"
Ahh road rage at its very best.
The driver then sped off.
A few minutes later, another car came to do the exact same thing to me and I showed him the finger, which was enough to shoo him away.
After a while I started thinking to myself...
"Hmmm... maybe they were trying to tell me something... like maybe my petrol tank was open.
So I stopped the car by the road side, got down and took a look.
My petrol tank was closed but my tire was punctured.
Miraculously I could still drive my car without much of a problem so I decided to head home to change it.
Now EVERY REAL MAN knows how to change his car tire ok?
EVERY REAL MAN!
If you're a girl and don't know how to change your car tire, no big deal... but if you're a guy.. what can you possibly do?
If you're stranded by the road side, are you going to flag down a cute chick in her pink VW beetle and say
"Excuse me miss.. uhmm.. I donno how to change my car tire wor.. can you help me?"
and what do you think the cute chick will say to you?
You think she'll say
"Sure... it's quite normal that men don't know how to change their own tires.. I'll help you out."
or do you think she'll say
"HAHAHAHAHAHAA YOU LEETLE LEETLE FRENCH POODLE!!!"
So if you really don't know how to do it.
First, find the tools to jack the car up and remove the bolts.
You will find it in the back of your boot.
The first thing you have to start with is the car jack to jack your car up (you may or may not choose to losen the nuts first before you do that but up to you).
In front of the rear tire, there is always a hard spot where you can place the jack on. Make sure you put it on that hard spot, and not anywhere else, or you will effectively punch a whole in your car.
Once the car is jacked up.
You can start removing the nuts and when you remove it, you will see this.
Then chuck your punctured tire aside first.
And replace it with the spare tire in the trunk.
Your job is done!
See? So easy...
Except that I realized... that in the midst of replacing the tire... I DIRTIED MY NUFFNANG SHIRT...
I just HAD to be wearing a white shirt on that day huh... just HAD to....
Not only that, I even got some dirt even on my face.
Don't ask how my forehead managed to come in contact with the tire. Even I don't know.
