    Truck fail.

    So I had my first car fail while dressed. My truck blew a small coolant line near the thermostat. Steam came out from under the hood, but luckily I was a block from the auto parts store. I pull in, pop the hood, get out the screwdriver, and start undoing the clamps. had it off in no time. So I walk right in, drop the old one on the counter. The guy looks it up then heads to the back. "I'm sorry mam, we don't have it" Then I'm "well, this probably isn't the kind of thing to have pre molded. Don't you have any line this size"? Well, uhhh,,, we have fuel line... Well, if it holds gas, it should certainly hold coolant... Uhhh,,, yea,,, I guess it would! Anywho despite the counter guy being a bit dim, they wer cool about letting me into the back room to get water to re-fill with.
    Then, another time, I'm wearing a frilly dress, when the solenoid went out. I popped the hood, pulled out a screw driver and jumped it right there in the middle of the Kroger parking lot! then stopped at the parts store for a new one and changed it in their parking lot.
    Moral of the stories. Things will happen, but they aren't the end of the world because we are being who we are!

    As a car guy (gal?) With an actually used 4x4, I can relate, your post gave me a chuckle. Mechanics (rollseyes) cracked me up sometimes. Guess that's why the wife sends me to take the cars in.

    I always take a backpack with mens casual type clothes and makeup remover with me when I'm out en femme for just such occasions. This saved the day once when I had a tire blow out on me!

    To be honest. I worked in an independant auto parts store for 21 years and now a car dealership for a year and half. So I hope no one says a gurl cant make a good parts person or a tech. And believe me there are just as many men as women who have no idea what so ever how to fix a vehicle or even what makes it run. Dont be too concerened about what you are wearing at the time, if you can just fix it and be glad you know how.

    I had something like this before, was going downtown with some girlfriends and the car got a flat. Me being the only gentic male was "volunteered" to change the tire. So there I was in a mini skirt, heels and low cut top changing a tire in a CVS parking lot. But I did get hit on by a cop which was kinda fun.

    Girls, even GGs can certainly fix stuff. Someone telling my GF she can't fix bikes will get told off pretty sharply!
    "Normal is what you get when you average out the weirdness that everybody has." Quote from my SO

    Normal is a setting on a washing machine, or another word for average.

    The fact that I wear a skirt as a male should not be taken as a comment on what you do, or do not wear, or how you wear it.

    I had an experience that almost gave me a heartattack. I was dressed and heading to the city when my car stalled at a toll booth. I had no idea what the heck I was gonna do if my car was dead. Luckily it started up again and I was on my way in less than 2 minutes, which seemed like an eternity. After that I started carrying an emergency kit in my car with make up wipes sweat pants and gym shoes

    I had a flat wearing a mini and 5 inch platform heels. I pulled into a parking lot and it took about 5-10 minutes to change the flat and ruin my favorite heels. I should have had an emergency clothing change bag.

    I'm glad you can do it.

    I'm not much of a car person.... I guess I'm more girl than guy in that respect. I can change a tire, but if I were in girl mode and this happened, I have a AAA card, a cell phone and I'm not afraid to use it.

    You may be able to make minor repairs at the drop of a hat, but, not all of us are so handy...en drab or en femme. I carry a change of male clothing with me. I wouldn't want to get a pretty dress dirty when changing a tire.

    Yea I don't really have to much of that stuff any more. How about a pair of my girl jeans to protect a nice dress and some touch up just in case I trash my makeup?

    They know me at both Auto Zone and O'Riley's. They don't bat an eye anymore. (not that they ever really noticed in the first place.

    Always used to keep water heater hose and extra coolant in the trunk, along with a tool kit and a few other common replacement parts. I drove old cars for most of my working life and had to learn mechanics in self defense. Necessity is a mother.
