Default I know this is really rubbish of me....

....but the missus has a flat tyre, we need to change to the spare but as I don't drive, I've never changed a wheel and don't fancy jacking the jeep up so it falls on me or summat,

Who can I get to come out and do it for me?

Do the weak thing and buy a can of the tyre repair. That will sort it for a time till you can find a real man to fix the thing for you.

To think I used to hold you in high esteem. How the mighty have fallen!

Hey Alexa, I'm with you...independence first...then turn on the girly smile/pout if a fella comes along...that way I don't break my nails! However, if I'm in a situation where there is NO help whatsoever, e.g. on a lonely road, I will be thankful my dad taught me how to change that tyre!!

Method to the madness!!
