When is the last time you.....

Post by jamoni » Thu Jan 07, 2010 1:44 pm

Okay: here's how this works: Post something that everyone should do on a regular basis, that you did today. This will remind everybody to go do the thing you just did.
I'll start:
When is the last time you changed the fuel filter in your car?

Cars have filters? ;-)


Matter of fact, mine is at the dealership now getting the head gasket changed, tranny flushed and all fluids flushed and changed.

On the issue of vehicles;

Last time you checked your tire pressure? I do this every third time I fill up my tank and I never let my tank go below a half.

Last night.... When I bought another Case of water...

When is the last time you checked your Brakes on your vehicle?
Well I decided that I'm not going to sit there till the boy finaly come home, he's 20 so it could be days. The only man thing left to do is rip the toilet out of the floor and go out side and smash it on the driveway to free my hand.

Cleaned 5 years worth of hair from the shower drain because it finally clogged (to be fair, the wife cleaned it out).

Tire pressure should be done once a week. Tire problems, including low pressure, are an E-ticket ride to a life insurance payout.

When was the last time you check the smoke detectors (batteries) and fire extinguishers (charge) in your house?

Vaccuumed/cleaned out your dryer vent and exhaust tube (one of the most common sources of house fires!)?

Cleaned up the grease and residues on your stove exhaust fan filter?
