Be prepared for problems if you own a car. Find out about a common one in this episode. Slow dialog: 1:21 Explanations: 3:19 Fast dialog: 14:45 Jaloliddin: What is that thumping noise? Minisa: I don’t hear anything. Jaloliddin: I think you have a flat tire. Minisa: The left rear tire has a slow leak, but I just inflated it the last time I was at the gas station, so I’m sure it’s fine. Jaloliddin: No, really, I think you need to pull off to the side of the road. Minisa: We’re on a busy freeway, but if you insist. Jaloliddin: Wow, your tire is definitely flat. See how the tire is completely worn out, with hardly any tread left? Minisa: Yeah, well, I’ve been meaning to get a new one. Now what? Jaloliddin: We need to change it. Let’s see if you have a jack and a spare tire. Minisa: I think they’re in the trunk, but I don’t think I could do it myself. Jaloliddin: [sigh] Right. I’ll change the tire. Do you have a wrench so I can get the lug nuts off? Minisa: I have some basic tools in the trunk, too, I think. Jaloliddin: Put your hazard lights on and I’ll get to work. At least your rim doesn’t look bent. Minisa: I’m glad to hear that. What should I do? Jaloliddin: Bone up on basic car maintenance? Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
