Before my dad would let me drive any of the family vehicles, I had to demonstrate that I knew how to check and fill oil, check tire pressure, etc., and jack up the car and change a tire.
On my long drive on small roads to a job interview in the early 70's, I had a flat, and changing it made me late by a few minutes, though I had started out quite early.
I had to excuse myself from shaking hands upon arrival, because my hands were black from the tire change. However, after a few minutes of scrubbing in the ladies' room and an hour long interview, I got the job, even though I was delayed by the flat.
Yes, it makes sense for everyone to know how to change a tire. Good advice, Brandy.
