User Topic: I jump-started my car and didn't blow anything up.

Head out for class yesterday (a few minutes behind schedule) and notice that a back door is ajar. Huh.

Get in and push the button to start the car.
Click.Click.Click.
Well.....shit. Now what?

Open up the phone book for towing services to call for a jump...then realize that I have a second car in the garage, and I'm pretty sure there are jumper cables out there (in the garage) somewhere.

Thank god for the car manuals. I am terrified of anything that involves electricity and the possibility of explosion/fire (and I have the broken-off light bulb nubs in my dining room chandelier to prove it).

Anyway. YAY ME! I did it and I'm feeling like a force to be reckoned with! My car was dead and *I* revived it. Without blowing anything up.

Congrats.

Add it to your list of one more thing you DONT need a man for. LOL

I was fortunate in that my Daddy said you don't get the keys to the car until you can change a tire, jump start it, change the oil, and check all vital fluids. Saved my skin more than once.

Good Job girl. Oh and those broken nubs, you just cut a potato and then jam it onto the part that is left and twist em on out.

Yea I've heard of this technique.
I am seriously squeamish about electrical stuff....as in I'd be nervous about trying this on an unplugged lamp while sitting in the middle of my backyard far, far away from any electrical outlet.

I'll work up my courage and get it handled one of these days, though......

Chrysalis, and anyone else out there that is afraid of this, please learn how to do it.

It isn't complicated, and is just a series of steps. Just like memorizing a recipe, you can learn this. It can really be a lifesaver.

I think most of the jumper cables you purchase these days even have the step by step instructions on the little carrying bag they come with.

Go to WalMart, or Autozone, and purchase a set. Mess with them, overcome your fear. Keep them in your trunk, you never know when you will need them.

Gonna, find your electric panel, and turn off the circuit that controls that light, if you aren't sure which one it is, cut the power with the main switch to the entire house, go to it, and then flip it back on. You can do this girl.

Ohhh SNAP!

Just the other day I changed my neighbor's headlight out while he babysat my daughter. I'm the manliest man on the block!

Which reminds me......I changed the headlight in my car one time.....


Hey TR -- thanks for the heads-up. I had no idea those existed, although I suppose I shouldn't be surprised. (oh, and the guys in my house would be pretty likely to use pliers to try to get the *nub* out -- while the light was still on so they could see what they were doing *I'm* the cautious one in the family......)


Ok. So I also have a really, really high ceiling in my living room. Guess what? There are 2 of those canister/floodlight-type lights up there. Both burnt out. My ladder is too short (and it's a tall-ass ladder!).
Is there a tool to help me replace those lights? Or do I just need to call a tall person who has a super-tall ladder?
