    Or you could stop worrying about outdated, macho myths.

    re: bruno

    I’ve never believed in macho. That being said, it’s very handy to know how to fix things right when they break. There are limits, though: I never try to fix old plumbing because there’s no way for me to know what is going on in a wall without knocking a hole in it. I leave that to professionals. If it’s something simple like fixing a computer or something mechanical, I do it myself. For most things on cars, though, let someone fix it who knows how the ten thousand parts and linkages work.

    I was going to say the same thing, but you beat me to it!

    A man purse in Scotland is called a sporran and no one makes fun of the highlander who carries one. The Germans in WW-1 called these kilt wearing laddies, the ladies from hell.

    Adam is a suburban metrosexual. Not sure there’s a snappier-sounding term for that.

    well said so when the mechanic tells you that your car needs a new watchamacallit and it’s going to cost you $700 don’t complain because “you stopped worrying about outdated, macho myths.” Good luck next time your car breaks down.

    OK…well… lookee here. There’s this "thing-a-ma-bob under that dash that you can buy a gadget for that will read the codes stored in your computer. Cost: 29.99 to 109.99 depending on which version. It is simple to use and a book comes with it to tell you what the code means.

    OR, some parts stores will do it for you FREE – most people will then buy the part there so….

    Still doesn’t mean you can fix it. Special tools and tight spaces requiring the removal of the frickin’ motor to change a spark plug is a problem….but …. at least when the mech says you need a freetusphater you can call BS on him.

    Machismo, the “man stuff” is nearly universal.

    The two are not mutually exclusive.
    Actually, I know a fair bit about cars, and I’m sure there are women who do too.

    Uhhh…“man purse”????
    Does that mean what I’m afraid it means?


    Although I’ve never had one, there actually are such things. On an old episode of “Adam-12,” Officer Reed made a present of one to his partner, Pete Malloy.
