    1. My 31-year-old spare still works
    1.a. 31-year-old air sometimes leaks out of 31-year-old spares​

    2. Don't toss the cell phone back onto the kitchen counter just because you don't think you'll need it
    2.a. Some people who drive nice convertible mustangs are very nice and will lend you their cell phone​

    3. Don't listen to 7 year-old boys when they say, "Let's take the dirtway!" Don't do it. Just go get some ****ing milkshakes like you were supposed to do rather than take a "short run near the house" on a Sunday night in an old cruiser without your equipment in it.

    3. Wear shoes when there's any possibility of a "short run near the house."

    4. Make sure the little ones, especially girls, pee before you leave, if there's any chance of a "short run near the house."

    5. The jack works better if you keep the handle in the car with you
    5.a. The wife doesn't like to get calls to bring tools, especially from strangers' cell phones.​

    :eek:

    I don't know for sure how old my spare is, but it's a JCPenney tire if that says anything.
