Default Here'* Your Sign!

So my buddies girlfriend just came over to ask me to jump her car because her boyfriend doesnt know how. LOL! cant believe there r guys out there who dont know how to jump a vehicle. Haha. Anyhow... so i went out to her car and as im hooking up the jumper cables she says "should my car be running while we r jumping it?" I said "if ur car can be started, why r we trying to jump it?" So goes "O right"
LOL

Here'* Ur Sign!

Pretty funny. I won't jump cars anymore except if what mine will give not running with key off. Car/equipment is too expensive and the voltage/amperage jumps to risky. If a simple jump doesn't start it, I'm taking you to AutoZone for a new Bat, or leavin the scene.

I got me one of them jump boxes. Nice little battery box gets most things going enough to get fired.

Unless I am at work, then I just grab the service truck, it has a start all on it

Some people are lucky they know where to put gas. Basic auto should be a requirement in school.

As someone who works on cars for a living, I second the fact that most people are lucky to know how to put gas in their cars..

Ive seen lugnuts put on backwards, people put coolant in their washer fluid resovoir. Oil overfilled a gallon..

Ugh, sometimes I loose faith in the general public
