Thought for the day

What would a plumbing job be without at least one more trip to the hardware store than you were expecting?

It would be nice to find out some day.

  1. My Tennessee Father In Law saved my sanity be telling me “No home improvement/repair job is every completed without at least 3 trips to the hardware store.”

    As a novice homeowner, I was doubting my ability to plan and execute a simple repair or improvement. Hearing someone who had been there and done that say that helped me realize I wasn’t completely hopeless.

    I also find that 75% of any job is having the right tool; of course I usually don’t find out what the right too is until the 3rd trip to the store.

    • Miraculously, I actually found the right tool yesterday on my first try, it was the stupid little pressure-fittings that I didn’t have any of. Again. So I went and bought a boat load of them, to insure at least that next time it will be some new and interesting thing.

  2. That’s why I won’t start to work on a vehicle unless I have one to drive.
