This is not a post about my own YouTube channel, but cheap plug, click here for the My 1-2-3 Cents page. No, today I'm sending a shout out to Jeff Wong with Expert Village. While his video on how to remove a spare tire didn't save my life, it certainly saved the day. I wish I would have found it sooner than I did.

It's not that I didn't want to help the woman. It's more about my inability to do anything remotely mechanical. I learned how to change a flat tire 25 years ago. I've changed two in my entire life, but they were both on cars. This woman was driving an SUV. After taking what seemed like an eternity to figure out how to jack up the front of her vehicle, I was able accomplish that seemingly simply job and finally loosen the lug nuts and get the tire removed.
Then came the fun part. The spare was under the back of the SUV. She said it unscrewed somehow, so I slid under and tried to pry the rusted wing nut (I think that what it was) but it hardly budged. Even after using the tire iron and some DeIcer (the idea of the mall security guard) I was baffled. It's a blistering hot day and my body was dripping sweat. I got light headed at one point as the sweat rolled into my eyes. My skin burned on the hot asphalt.
I'm also grateful for technology and the fact that YouTube has so many uses other than uploading videos about wrestling.
