    My friend is a millwright and works in a tire recycling facility, but does not have much experience working on his own vehicles. He asked if he could sit in and watch as I replaced the brake rotors on my girlfriend's Honda Civic.

    Anyway, my friend and his 7 year old son showed up and I went through a step by step explanation as I changed the rotors and bled the brakes. When we finished, I threw the lug wrench to my buddy and told him to go ahead and put on the wheels.

    At this point his son freaks out and cries, "Oh no!! Somebody gave my Dad a tool- we are all done for!!". Then he said, "Please, take it away he really doesn't know what he is doing!!". My friend blushed bright red (Hard for a guy from Barbados) and sheepishly put the wheels on the car.

    I withheld my laughter until after they had left... and then double checked the lug nuts!! :D

    unless your friend is tim taylor, his son either likes to piss his dad off, or needs a smack upside the head.

    Yeah, I figured a millwright ought to be able to at least put on a set of tires. BTW they were OK when I checked them.

    I think his son was alarmed because of his father's complete lack of ability to put together IKEA furniture. I have had to go over and reassemble several beds that were not really safe to lie on!

    Incidentally- the son does not have a problem with tools. At age 4 he took apart the family computer after he had seen me building a system. When his parents found out they freaked- and then watched in amazement when he calmly put it back together!
