Well, in my younger adult years I've seen it in my co-workers. The empty-nester Dad that spent the weekend giving the college daughter's car an oil change and a good lookin' over. Seemed to me like the kid was old enough to take care of things herself and the Dad was just spoiling her. Guess what I did for the first time this weekend. Changed the oil and gave a good lookin' over to my college daughter's car. I now understand. It's not a chore. It's not a job. I want to do it, and I feel it keeps me connected with her ever-maturing and busy life. Maybe she does feel entitled to this service and maybe she is a little spoiled. I don't care. I'm still her head mechanic.
