Today's survey is brought to you courtesy of a conversation with a friend, and my neighbours.
I was on the phone with a girlfriend the other day and she said she doesn't know how to change a tyre.
My neighbourhood is a cacophony of bus horns from 06:00 until 07:00 and again all afternoon from 12:45 until 16:00. How hard is it to be ready when the bus picks up / drops off your children? Also, last night at 23:30 there was some sort of drunken brawl between two groups of my neighbours. I am sort of getting fed up with this neighbourhood.
Whiteout further adieu; Three burning questions. I've turned off word verification, and you all can respond anonymously if you wish.
1) Do you know how to change a tyre, Jump start a car, and check all the fluids for your car? Does your spouse?
2) Is it appropriate to instruct your child's' bus driver to sit outside your house and honk until the your child appears in the morning and until the maid appears to escort the kid inside in the afternoon? Would requesting a missed call not achieve the same result?
And for a bonus point,
3) Having politely broached the subject twice, is it now appropriate for me to lob projectiles onto the bus, family, maid and child until they get the message? What sort of projectiles would you recommend? Or should I perhaps stand outside their bedroom window with an air horn randomly honking them and waking them up twice in every 24 hours?
I am seriously asking.
