So I’m a total fluke when it comes to home repair or maintenance. I don’t have any idea on how to fix any damages, make necessary adjustments, home repairs, tube cleanings, etc. Before when I was single and still living with my father, I leave it to him. Now that I’m married, I leave it to my husband.
A friend of mine was telling me about an instance when her husband was out of town and she was left alone in their home for two weeks. She has this lovely garden that she attends to everyday. Now just a day after her husband left, the garden hose broke down or something (see, i can’t even tell what exactly happened on the hose). Since she doesn’t have anyone to go for help to fix the problem, she tried to fix it herself. What she did was she bought a cheap hose and tried to use that for here gardening. Despite the new cheap hose, she’s still having problems with the water because, unfortunately, the hose can’t handle the high pressure of the water.
To cut the story short, she sought help from a plumber or I don’t know what you call that person who knows how to properly fix the garden hose. Basically, the man just replaced the broken hose with a braided hose so that it will carry the pressure of the water.
Needless to say, I myself learned a lesson from here story. Us girls should not rely on guys always for home improvements. We should also learn the in’s and out’s of home repair so that when they’re not around and something comes up, we can handle it on our own.
