I guess to spread around its Q a for coming isn't there or someone you could call it takes care of these I don't gather as buddy keep things that. You you have to go to man landlord and he doesn't think he's gonna do rate they're gonna come back he handled mostly an area that's the other part of this is a rented place your do in this. You've got a call somebody that I mean that's even worse because if you if you take it on yourself and you're really SO well yeah and happened yep. What are the elements what do you read him whether eroding most men will make this mistake at least once in life not a he said he did I know what I do don't handle on my own it's real no matter. What you are trying to do at home whether it's put up drywall or fix a roof forget rhetoric codes unless you like an electrician accord general contractor or exterminator. Where the job your attempting is what you do for living you're going to screw it up in some way and why do I get the impression except by GO that you are I'm gonna try to do. Myself god Oracle's. Totally wrong. I'm the complete opposite in fact. I basically. Know nothing about anything when it comes to building put except together. I I always have the sing okay. I can tell you off the top my head pretty much the last thirty Heisman Trophy winners NCAA basketball champions or champions you know where would I know about a car. Where to stick a key and a I have no idea even how its regional oil hedging oil nothing nice to change it oils. I have no idea what I'm looking at one opener I take everything. To someone who knows what they're doing now with that comes people taking advantage of me so I have to make sure that that's not happening. But I look at it is a it is a common joke in my house. It's not really a joke it's true. That basically I just don't do and I will call somebody to basically do. Anything now the last few years I've tried it a few things here that put together a stare at the bottom my deck were actually had to put some wood on net make sure and it was right now you know I would ever take the stairs of whomever in my right exactly I. But when it comes no way now that is a little different at there's something going on in my house out of my building things and fixing things like that. But this raccoon thing I know maybe I might be. I record I don't I wouldn't do it for raccoon but that was another situation like that I did try to put in a the third former house eleven and olds old house in the city built in 1901 the third floor and attic right we converted into Lincoln office space basically. But had a really old window yet that was used as an. I had to replace the window in the when a pain in everything. So instead of calling someone we know people I try to do myself of course I dropped the window that I bought. And outside it shattered all over the roof underneath me. At your window in that I had to call people and I wanna paying 200 bucks to make sure that. The problem is now on even like this is what my boyfriend going after his. Everything's on YouTube. Like every doing yourself writings on YouTube so he thinks in his might well look easy on this you know three minute video I'm sure I can figured out myself. And I think that's a lot of that it did Tommy you lay tried to get rid of the moles on his yard by himself to me all of the zarrella. It is so it was it was harder for him accurate and what does this shame as a man. In admitting you can't do something to did you 6000 I tried to do it and I it was disaster to jump in why after everything about everything because it's impossible to know I just. Well he admitted I I don't I'm fine I would do I I I am. I have no idea about a car I. I will take it to an expert a person every time they could you know that commercial where the car person is talking to someone and in making up all these everything's wrong with the car yet it's not. You could I would probably believe that person I have no idea about a car felt pat is so bad that he can't think kid to come over to change his people know he does.
