I used to love it when the kids were little and someone would ask me "who's babysitting your children?" I usually said "no one" just to see the shocked look on their face. They had a father who had just as much to do with them existing as I did, so I never considered it "babysitting" when he took care of them.

Actually, Billy - when you "rotate" your tires, front-to-back is the only way Edmunds.com and most experts advise to "rotate" your tires. I just had the tires on the Rover rotated and the guy at the shop told me the same thing.

I agree on the oil change thing though.
I always thought you were supposed to criss cross them, ya learn something new every day. Still, the theory stays the same, it's really not something that the average person would do on their own. I take my cars to the tire store and get them rotated (free of charge) every six months. Really, I never watched to see what pattern they move them in, the only thing I really watch is to make sure that they start the lug nuts by hand instead of with the air wrench.

I used to get that all the time too, I'd be out with the CHO and someone would say "Oh, you have to babysit the kid today?", like it was some kind of punishment or something. I'd always tell them,"No, I'm lucky enough to watch my daughter today".

Unless you own a Dodge Viper, Crossfire, or Corvette - they have different size tires on the front than the back - then you go side-to-side, at least that's what Wally the Service guy told me...lol

My '68 Shelby GT-350 had different-sized tires from front to back - of course I'd melt the treads off the rear ones well before I would ever need to rotate them. Lol...

Those who can, do.

Those who can't, go shoe-shopping.

who changes their own oil anymore. Where I live you can get your oil changed, all other fluids filled, car vacuumed for very little money and a free car wash as well. Tire rotations are free too at most places. My mechanic does it for free. Some men over estimate what they do.

Most tires end up needing to be rotated so often because people make to many fast sharp turns causing tires to wear out quick. Low tire pressure is another and cars out of alignment by do it yourselfers or lazy mechanics. Also don't buy the cheap tires.

Should men help with the dishes? No, they should do them by themselves without being asked.

Why bother with dishes when you can just pay someone to do them for you.
