Change my Tires

Hi - need some one to change my tires for a car in my garage.


I can't take it to the local garage, it has to be towed away (i'm dumping the car as the transmission is gone and not worth repairing).


i would like to have someone to change the tires to the old winter ones for me, (they are already on rims that i don't want).


Location is Wurenlos, Dietikon or Wettingen exit of the A1.


Cheers

Unless you have a disability this can easily be done yourself.

That's a fantastic and genius insight you given - very smart you are, i'm just so impressed ..and mean you must be a freaking PhD eh? ..nah you've better than that.... you've got to be a god damn Nobel Prize Laureate no?


Could it it be, member of Menza, Edwin , that i don't have much time - especially with a 2.5 year old, other house-work priorities, and a super high travel schedule leaving me little time at home (or in CH even) over the next few weeks? And maybe I need a little help? what do you think Genius?..man you're so smart i'm just so freaking inferior to you.


And..what if I was disabled....eh genius? ...how do you think a disabled person would feel with such coment....so love your empathy.


The song "shine bright like a diamond" was all about you..Wow ..eh?


cheers

Yep, that is where people pay money to somebody else so they can call themselves smart

Always had respect for the person who came up with that businessmodel.

Most all jobs posted on EF are jobs people can do themselves. But some people on the EF also have more to gain by doing their own jobs or relishing their time off then being handy. I’ve been paid to, for me, sometimes do the easiest of things. One guy on here paid me 75 CHF every 3-4 days to take his empty beer bottles, literally a 5 minute walk from his house. Of course I questioned it. But he was very wealthy and couldn’t care less to do it. And sometimes these little jobs have gone a long way for people like me who are behind on the rent.

For some reason I couldn't quote, so I pasted Confloozed post above. Now my comment:


Confloozed - that's exactly right - the reality is many of us just don't have the time to do the little things and sometimes is not being wealthy...sometimes..... its really about ..."hell, i sooooo don't have time right not to do the little things, I'd rather pay someone because value for my time is worth more".


And if my desire to get help to do something that..yes I can do....but I am so slammed for time.....and someone is interested in helping then fantastic. Win-win right.


So when i get a comment about if i'm not disabled you can do it yourself...well..No Sh*t sherlock thanks for the no value useless comment right?


I mean you have a working wife, a full time job and a demanding 2.5 years old.....you start to want to pay for time. Anyone who has a kid will understand this.


Best,


Parkadam


N.b. yes, Mensa...it's what happens when you're influenced by an Italian wife.
