“More often than not people were out of their minds” – A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman
A trip to Home Depot. Needed parts and supplies for an important household repair. The exact nature of that task is not important. Suffice to say I was in attack mode. Testosterone flowing. Man stuff.
I intended to fix something.
And that should have been the first clue that this was not going to end well.
Sooooooooooooooooooooooooo…………………………..4 hours later.
My knuckles are skinned.
The bathroom is a mess with tools and parts distributed helter skelter.
Blood dripping down the sides of the sink.
My wife is cringing in fear in a corner.
God has forsaken me due to an explosion of profanity.
I have lost all faith in the rule of law.
Please God………………….save me from myself. Pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.

So weird that you post something like this on the VERY day I had a similar tragicomic experience! Just trying to replace the springs and seats in my bathroom faucet and it turned into an hour-and-a-half ordeal. Some of us should never pick up tools! 🙂
i am at the top of that list.
I am sending a psychologist and a podiatrist. This thing needs to be handled head to foot.
WTF. I flunked shop.
Been there done that. I even have the shirt. 😃
My wife freaks out whenever I touch a screwdriver. She knows it won’t end well.
