Granted my puny self probably would have had some difficulty loosening the nuts, but I really would have much rather done it myself since I already knew how to do it...I mean it was one of the few things I remembered how to do exactly after being shown how 4 years ago, I feel like I was robbed a chance to actually carry out something I'd remembered for once. (Not to mention insulted by the "mans job" bit).

I guess I can't really complain about random friendly strangers though, even if two weeks later he shows up with his wife and harasses me in broken english for information about my new tires, and to write it down and tell him where exactly in this city I am not native to it is and how to get there.
What's with the racial overtones here? -poke poke-
