Like Ralphie's father trying to fix the furnace?

Who is Ralphie? If his father cusses a blue streak, makes the problem worse, then has to call a repairman anyway, the answer is yes. LOL

I challenge you!!!
My husband over builds~~
We used to do a lot of primitive camping back in the 80's.
Curlie decided to build a box for all our camping gear so
we could carry it together into the camp site.
When he finished, all it needed was an axle, a couple of tires, and a tag...

Ralphie's father- from 'A Christmas Story'.

Here is the quote from Ralphie as his father tried to fix their furnace:

Now, I had heard that word at least ten times a day from my old man. He worked in profanity the way other artists might work in oils or clay. It was his true medium; a master.
In the heat of battle my father wove a tapestry of obscenities that as far as we know is still hanging in space over Lake Michigan.

LOL mine would have built a box that fell apart the first time he tried to move it. He has many wonderful qualities, but DIY is NOT one of them. The man is hopeless, and won't admit it! The most dreaded sentence in our house is him saying "don't call anyone, I can fix that".

Mine turns a one hour project into an all day one. That includes running to the big box store to gt the parts he misplaced and swears were never there to begin with. How come all the kits he gets have missing parts and mine don't? Anyway, I've find it easie just to do it myself.

I love that movie. A classic. AND a family favorite even with the cursing because everyone can relate to the obsurd things that happen on holidays.

I can't do any DIY either. We're a couple of klutzes when it comes to that stuff. I once bought "put-'em-together yourself" bookcases to store stuff on in the garage and ended up hiring the neighbor's kid to do it after I got so frustrated I was ready to throw the whole mess in the garbage. We definitely do our share to keep the service and trades folks busy. My dad was one of those guys who could fix or build anything and loved doing it, so for many years we never hired anyone to do anything, we just called dad. It was quite a sticker shock when he died and we found out what his services would have cost us all those years!! He's been gone for nearly 4 years now, and I finally feel like I have good trustworthy people in my list of plumber, AC/furnace guy, small contractor, electrician, etc.

In the movie Santa Claus when Tim Allen is talking to the reindeer the reindeer farts 3 or 4 times . This is just another thing to corrupt our children . Lets hope they don't do this in school .
Good idea. Stop farting. Right. People(mostly kids and men) have been laughing at fart jokes since time began. They even made jokes about it in the court f King Henry the VII, but no school currirculum has ever had Farting 101. What an ignoramious.

I laughed my balls off.
