I’m the kind of guy that likes to help out my friends whenever possible.
So when a friend of mine (I’ll refer to him as Fred because I don’t want the poor guy to feel like a total loser) stopped over last night, I was more than happy to help him with his windshield wiper blades.
Not everyone is blessed with common sense when it comes to simple tasks and Fred is one of those guys.
Instead of installing them myself, I figured he’d learn better by trying it on his own. What a freaking mistake that turned out to be.
He first tried to replace the driver’s side wiper. Not only did Fred put it on backwards, but as he pulled it off, he snapped a little piece of plastic off which meant he wouldn’t be able to use it.
I felt bad because I was there to guide him through the process. But even after reading the directions, he still screwed it up. What I dope, I thought. Luckily we kept the old one and I helped him put it back on.
It was beginning to rain hard when he started the second one. I was getting irritated and drenched. I couldn’t believe Fred was such an idiot.
Forty-five minutes later the job was complete. I didn’t invite Fred in to dry off because I just wanted to forget about the whole ordeal.
Yup… sure glad I’m not like Fred.
