Changing two tires in a gas station parking lot a half an hour from home in July heat is sweaty. Changing two tires in a gas station parking lot a half an hour from home in February cold is just plain painful. As an aside, did you know that a Smart Fortwo comes with a nifty tire inflator, but does not come with a JACK? Neither did I when I left stately Jones manor on a rescue mission to save a SWMBO in distress. Can you guess which tool I DIDN'T bring when I loaded tools and tires and dogs into the back of Lady Liberty and departed on aforementioned mission?
When SWMBO's er, enthusiastic approach to green light launches collides with her laissez-faire attitude toward preventive maintenance, the result isn't pretty.
