This little girl from Ohio has it all figured out. Not only does she know more about changing a car’s oil than the typical quick lube employee, but she also understands the importance of keeping cookies on hand at all times so she has something to snack on while she waits for the oil to drain. That’s some next-level preparedness.
Mom and Dad no doubt taught her well, and in the above video from her Little How To Girl YouTube channel, she jacks the car up to drain the oil, changes the oil filter, and pours in fresh engine oil before checking the oil level. Take notes, would-be DIYers: This is what putting on a how-to car maintenance clinic looks like.
At one point during her demonstration, she has a moment most of us can all relate to, when she struggles with the filter wrench and just wants to give up. “I can’t do it,” she says. Then, we flash to a quick cut, and she comes back with, “Yes, I can.” Who knows how long it actually took her in between takes to finally figure it out, but clearly she got a pep talk from either Mom or Dad on the importance of sticking with it. Ultimately, her patience ends up paying off and she gets the job while barely breaking a sweat. Sweet victory!
Forget making the bed or folding laundry or doing dishes. Those are basic kids’ chores. This girl’s on that advanced level, having already mastered the basic car maintenance that some grown men won’t even try. What a champ!
