Before he retired, my dad worked as a Foreman for a local construction supplier, but as a Foreman, he knew how to do a little bit of everything.
I guess being in construction & seeing the weird tasks being done around him, he picked up some of the tricks of the trade along the way, but this came in handy especially in our home! My dad didn’t need to call that several people to perform maintenance on our appliances because he could figure out how to repair them on his own! Same thing for remodeling, he once changed out our entire kitchen cabinets by himself, & he remodeled his master bathroom with undoubtedly little help.
So knowing this about my dad, I was shocked when he told myself and others that he called a plumber to change the sink in his bathroom because it had a leak. Apparently, he could not figure out how to unaffix the sink himself because of a area that he couldn’t unaffix. Therefore, he needed the help of a plumber, however good thing, he didn’t have to call a random plumbing service, the plumber that he called was his longtime neighbor that took care of a single of his construction sites. They worked together & they were able to unaffix the bathroom sink. Being a Foreman for so several years entirely has its advantages. If you own a home, you will need some kind of maintenance done. It’s good that my dad knew how to repair so several things, but it’s even better that he knew a plumber that he could call when he needed a single.
