Reminds me of when my mother took her SUV to Minute Lube for an oil change with me(unfortunatly in it.) The service man asked her to put on the ebrake and she says "I don't know if this thing has an ebrake... I've never used it." and when asked to pop the hood she says "I don't know how."

She recent bought a VW Jetta, and now that the weather has become warmer again and the aux fan has turned on for the first time, she was concerned something was wrong with the car because it was making 'noises' after it was shut off.
