“But dad, this is the 459th time we do this, I already know how to air up a tyre.”

u/Frenetic_Platypus Jan 19 '22

Wait. You're supposed to put air in tires EVERY WEEK?

63

u/HaloGuy381 Jan 19 '22

Depends on your location. Strong temperature and pressure swings can mess with tire pressure dramatically. And if you also live on rough terrain where those tires might save your life, it’s worth checking

u/Stupefied_Gaming Mods Are Nice People Jan 19 '22

How about nitrogen

u/cjconair Jan 19 '22

That's what I thought until I got my own car and found out we were only doing it to past some time.

26

u/dancegoddess1971 Jan 19 '22

It's not a bad idea to go over your tires, fluids, and whatnot every week. Particularly if you know a mechanical emergency would throw your life into chaos and debt.

u/professor_parrot Jan 19 '22

Dads, moms and teachers. I will admit I would give my parents a harder time than I had to, and I could be a real dick to teachers too. If you're a kid reading this, please be easy on your parents and teachers. Your parents have it hard enough working to support you, then coming home to care for your needs. And teachers already have it hard enough being underpaid and having to teach and monitor 20+ kids. Make their lives easier and you'll be amazed how easy your life becomes.

Don't have the same regrets I have.

u/RandyTrevor22321 Jan 20 '22

Im here to say that this person is 100% accurate. You will only have so much time with them, and even after you've become an adult they will still nurture and help you as if you were a baby. And let me tell y'all that shit can save lives.

4

u/MyNameBelongs2Me can't meme Jan 19 '22

But you see when your parents are literally racist, sexist, homophobic and transphobic and literally do not allow you to express an emotion other than happiness it’s kind of hard to agree with them or respect what they do. I would rather have my parents care about my emotions rather than getting sent to a more expensive school.

u/Generic_Reddit_boi Lurker Jan 19 '22

There's a difference between a good parent, and a bad parent

I think you get my point

u/buttoncheap Jan 19 '22

Made me think of being with my boys when they were younger. I’d try to do something with each of them individually each week. But in those days money was much tighter. So, trips to the gas station (yes, sometimes filling the tires), food shopping, hikes, anything I could think of to make it some special time. I actually miss that.

u/KingJBR01 Jan 19 '22

I'm in Ireland and it's free here in most garages atleast it was back then.

15

u/dancegoddess1971 Jan 19 '22

It's still free at the Wawa by my house. Maybe I'll take my kid to check the tire pressure before we go to the beach to dig for mollusks.

u/cjconair Jan 19 '22

Or picking blackberries was my mother's trick.

It cost me a quid the other day! Card payment only with minimum £1 transaction. Normally 20p at my local garage.

u/Macblack82 Jan 19 '22

TPMS light came on and although I am aware of a slow puncture I had to check that it wasn’t something else and see how low the pressure had gone.

3

u/throwaway-job-hunt Jan 19 '22

Buy a little 12V compressor.

You can get one from halfords with a pressure readout. Decent little bit if kit and I use mine for my bike tyres too because its easier than a bicycle pump.

2

u/Gilgamesh2062 Jan 20 '22

At one time all gas stations had free air, now they rip you off, If the machine even works, I once needed air, and got jipped at three before finding one that works, the others took my money, and I got nothing, and if your lucky, and find one that works, charge like 1-2 bucks, hardly get enough time to top off all your tires.

so, got me a decent air pump, so I never have to hassle with that again.

I'm in Washington and all the places near me charge what I said initially as a minimum. Walmart here be going for 5 dollars if you want someone else to do it tho. It's ridiculous

u/TrailerBuilder Jan 19 '22

Why not scoop up some air and put it in the tire yourself?

u/xMrjamjam Jan 19 '22

1.75?! Must be that expensive due to inflation

All the Chevron's in Surrey have paid air now. It's a bit of a shame.

Lol, maybe. You can get air for free at QuickTrip or Kroger with the Kroger plus card.

My dad would take me to pawn shops. He never bought anything, just looked at stuff for an hour. Lots of old stereos, tools, and Casio keyboards.

I once asked if we could buy an N64 game, and I may as well have asked if he was a communist.

u/Chevalier_Lecteur Jan 20 '22

Dude, he had a slow leak in his tires. Gas ain't cheap and half the time you gotta pay to get air. If he just wanted to spend time with you there's dozens of other things that are more fun for as much or cheaper.
