Calling Uncle Bob
Have you ever faced a difficult situation when you had to choose between sorting it out yourself, or asking someone else for an easy fix? What did you choose — and would you make the same choice today?
I make these sorts of choices all the time. I had a brick walkway that was falling apart and becoming a law suit waiting to happen. I took it apart and tried to reinforce the base, but it was placed like a puzzle and I had a hard time doing this without forgetting where all of the pieces went. So I left it with a half-assed fix.
Yesterday a contractor came to fix an outdoor light. By the time he left, he’d not only fixed the light, but he’d fixed my walkway. What a sweetheart.
