"well, it's fairly complicated. You're probably gonna need to use some tools." To which I replied "I figured as much. But i'm willing to bet my garage has more tools than your entire store.." (when my dad moved, he left me all his "extras"). He laughed and said "Do you know what a monkey wrench is, young lady?" I smiled, saying "Yes I do. I also know that I do not need a monkey wrench to change a light bulb." Then he went on to rattle about how easy it is to blow fuses, and how the best way to handle them in by the glass (Erm.. WRONG!), and that if I needed any help at all to feel free and call him. Then he gave me his personal cell phone number.
Why is it women are supposed to be genetically bad at vehicles? I may be just starting off, but come on... Really?
