Ways Australia can kill you, No. 46,725: Redbacks in your wetsuit
Sounds like a bad way to go.
It keeps the riff-raff out of the country, or at least the slow ones that get in don't last very long and if something latches onto them its simply a case of running faster than the slowest ones.
|Luckily there was a Automotive parts store 2 blocks down, so I walked down there and bought an 'oil filter wrench.' Didn't even know those existed. |
See thats the problem with men. You go decide too do something like change oil or remove a sparkplug because youre either trying too prove something, save money or just like getting covered in crap.
Then you find out that you need too buy $80 of decent oil, $10 oil filter, $150 worth of sparkplugs and realise you dont have any tools so you run off and buy about $300 bucks worth of tools to actually do the job.
Then you'll swear, cry, cut yourself and with any luck remember too buy $30 wheel jacks so you dont kill yourself when the normal jack gives out.
Bash stuff a bit more, hurt yourself some more and realise theres things like sump plug gaskets which cost $1.00 but you didnt buy and have too catch the bus down too the store again, covering everything in oily crap and buy a set of overalls so you dont ruin your clothes for about another $80 too and go back home.
Or you can ignore the sump plug gasket and hope it doesnt leak too much... later seizing the engine and causing $1000's of dollars of damage.
This is assuming you know the difference between gearbox and diff oils and pour any old left over engine oil into those thinking youre very clever.
Then stumble back into the house and get a beating from any of the cohabitants in there because you've covered the place in crap and clog up the toilet with 5litres of used engine oil youre not sure what too do with now. Or just pour it over the corner of the neighbours fence and kill their plants.
I just put on my best clothes, take the car down too the service centre with a backseat full of oil, filters and stuff I want them too look at because otherwise they'll jip me on price. Pay them $100 and pick it up in the afternoon.
Then I'll catch the bus too the nearest mall and go shopping.
If I'm feeling particually cruel I'll go too another car lot and convince them too let me take their cars for a test drive. Yesterday I managed too convince some too let me drive a Lotus Exige with a factory supercharger.
Now all I need too do is find about $100,000 too buy one because its faster and prettier than my current car
