Default Mr Fix it!

I hate paying someone to do repairs for things that go wrong & I got caught in one of Mrs Tripper's adventures! Someone where she offices gave her a $600 expresso machine that stopped working & I've spent at least a day fooling with it! The solenoids were bad & I replaced them, but as luck would have it... I lost one of the stupid lil water line retention clips when I was putting it back together! No good deed goes unpunished!

I know what you mean! Since I fully retired, everyone wants me to fix stuff instead of calling a repairman! Iíve always been one to help folks out without expecting pay, but lately itís been insane! Since my Mother in law passed away last fall, my Pa in law has been on a mission to change all the things around the house she wouldnít let him do. Heís nearly blind, but heís still trying to tear down stuff and remodel. He gets in a bind, then he calls me! I donít mind helping when Iím not doing anything for myself, but jeez Pa, slow down!

I guess itís good to be the go to guy though. My sorry a$$ brother in law wonít get out of in front of the tv and do anything!

At least I sleep good at night!

My job when I worked full time was an electronic tech. I fixed more VHS, Cd players, and receivers than I could ever count. Also do OK with car repairs. As I have gotten older I don't do as much of these things. I never expected pay for any of it which is good because I usually didn't get any. Jim

And whata ya know... now our dish washer has sprung a leak! It's either a $50 part or a $800+ new one! A repairman's job is *never* done!!!
