Apart from being able to cook and do house chores, every woman should also be able do some little extra things. I have seen women driving Okadas, Keke Marwas and even all those big LAWMA trucks, its just amazing. Just yesterday, I even saw a lady on a Power Bike( ?I fear those things). But it just goes to show that women are no longer taking that role of being just sit at home wives but rather are taking on roles that many believe to be just Men roles. Here are a few things women should be able to do as well.....
1. Change a Light Bulb
You’d be surprised how many women cannot perform basic household repairs. A woman should have a basic tool set, a drill, a hammer and a wrench – and learn how to use them safely and properly. There is no reason you should have to call your landlord or your boyfriend to come over to hang a picture, change your air conditioner filter or make minor fixes like touching up paint.
2. Change a Tire
Strenuous you would say. Along the same lines of learning to use basic household tools, you should be equally as savvy when it comes to maintaining your car. Keep a jack, jumper cables, a flashlight, flares…and of course a spare tire in your car at all times. Learn how to safely pull over and change a tire so that you’ll never be stranded or waiting forever for a mechanic or vulcanizer to show up. While we’re at it, you might as well learn how to check and change your oil, check your lights and change bulbs and how to jump a car in case your battery dies on you....I can atleast change my oil..lol
Now, if you’re learning how to change a tire, it probably goes without saying that you should know how to drive and I don't mean just saloon cars and Jeeps, I also mean heavy duty vehicles.
