    Who changes the oil in your car? You or a place like Jiffy Lube?

    I get it done at Tire Pros. Why do you ask SaggyWoman? Are you looking for competitive prices? ;)

    What you do is this Saggy Woman. You stand by your car with all the neccessary items, prop the hood, and enjoy a nice cool drink. Without fail, a guy will come prancing by, and of course it always grabs their attention when they see a girl working on their own car. Right as this happens, you stick your finger in the car, scream ouch, then pop it in your mouth and suck. Draws 'em straight over. Being men, they can't stand their while YOU change the oil, especially with an injury, so give 'em a Pepsi and you get your oil changed. Now I did end up changing one whole sparkplug once before I got anyone to jump in, and I really did s****e a knuckle, but for the most part, I just stand in front of the car. [​IMG]

    Aw, I don't wanna hear any smart comments from anyone about it! It's a joke, ok? I don't even have a car, I'm Amish!

    That was a fun little word game. It was like working a crossword puzzle. Six letter word that begins with "S" and ends with "E" and has a bad word in the middle.

    I guess someone else might have said, "Who gives a ****?" :eek:

    Actually, I play that game when I have a flat tire. You can look more desparate becsuse you are desparate...I know how to change a tire, . . . but it is a lot more worthy to let a man do it .. .

    Funny thing, just had this discussion (oil change not s***e) with a few co-workers today. For me it's far less trouble to change it than to schedule and give up the car to have it done.

    We actually have a little drive through across from my place. $20 bucks and you don't even get out of the car, and if you don't like how they do it you just run 'em over on the way out. There's a car wash on the way out, so you're all set.

    My husband does it.
    My son waited for the oil light to come on before he put oil in his car. He threw a rod. The light never came on. He learned a lesson.

    I usually get mine changed at the Honda dealer, when I get other work done, too, but not always.. .. .

    I used to change my own years ago.. .. but not anymore.

    My husband changes mine. In 27 years of wedded bliss I have managed to stay ignorant of anything under the hood of the car despite my husbands efforts. My theory is that is way God made men. I do know when I turn the key and the car doesnt start ite broke, then I tell my husband and he fixes it, this has proved to be a efficient car maintence program. :D

    Changed the oil, and flushed the radiator today. That is the limit of my mechanical skills.
