My brother Bobby plus my father are the skilled people in the family.
So dad makes tools plus can work on any car, home appliance or home issue.
Bobby can repair anything. Bobby went off to study mechanical engineering. He then left a mechanically inept me to take his place for helping our father out with home repairs, so spending a perfectly great Friday morning hunched over an oily engine changing out a head gasket bored me to tears. I can still see the look of disappointment on my father’s face because I handed him the wrong tools. And worse yet is that my younger brother had inherited our father’s mechanical eye plus soon took over my requirements. That was fine by me. I am much happier on a tablet or in the kitchen. I just don’t have the mental skills of fixing a Heating plus A/C component. I somehow made it through life separate from any mechanical duties. I learned to change a tire plus string Christmas lights around the house, but one morning I felt empowered for some weird idea plus decided to update a temperature control that worked with the Heating plus air conditioning for the home office. The hardware store person, who looked a lot like dad, assured me that the updatement temperature control I bought was easy to set up. The guy even sold me the right tools to do the job. At home, I had a heck of a time doing it however. I wanted to call any other man to do it.
