    When the lawnmower or car breaks down. A faucet that leaks. Or an electrical outlet that broke? Are you the kind of guy who can fix it?

    Marry me.

    I'm good with electronics: I can fix computers, set up audio/video equipment, and so on. But with the mechanical stuff you listed, I'm not all that handy. I guess I wouldn't be much help in the post-apocalyptic world...

    absolutely, I've done everything in home construction except lay carpet, too hard on the knees. I love plumbing and electrical, drywall is probably my least favorite thing to do.

    I'm all about DIY. Unfortunately, I rent at the moment so I don't get too many opportunities to fix things.

    I learned to do a lot of those things on the farm. I'm pretty good at the electrical stuff especially. I'm also good at assembling and building. I can make a smart bookshelf if I need to!

    I can't fix many modern cars, although I can diagnose the problems. In fact last summer when the Midas people f'd up one of my breaks...I kept telling them what they'd done wrong and they INSISTED I was full of it...until I took the car to the dealership and paid big money to have it properly assessed.

    Midas gave me my money back.

    I don't mess with cars, but I'm pretty handy when it comes to anything else.

    I'll consider your proposal. Are you wealthy? My parents could definitely use a few bucks (your dowry, of course, in dollars not sheep).

    My father told me long ago that he hoped I made enough money to pay others to fix things...a note so polite hint that I'm not good at it...and I have to agree!

    Yes, all those things and much more, virtually any household fix-it task there is. But I'm already married.

    If it is a Honda, yea, I can. Most other cars, maybe, maybe not. Most things around the house, yea, I can. About the only thing I won't attempt to fix is a major issue, like the water heater or major wiring. I like the fact that I can do these things myself and save money in the process, too. icon_biggrin.gif

    ASCE mechanic for 15 years, construction business for 12 so far...."Yes", to all the above.
    "No", to the marriage proposal.
    I'm taken. icon_cool.gif

    I can fix most things, whether I'm good at it or not is open to debate. I'm pretty crafty though and usually try to fix things myself. I've had a pretty good track record of success, but not because I'm brilliantly gifted at any of these things, simply a combination of luck, information, and logic. I draw the line at cars and hardcore electronics though. I can change the oil myself, but other than that I let a mechanic take a look at it. Also, I would never be able to rebuild a motherboard or any of that insanely technical stuff.

    As for the proposals.... hmmmm... New York or France. Sounds great to me! I can and will be swayed by bribery and flattery.

    I can fix anything I put my mind to. If it's complex, like an electronic fuel injection system, then I'll read up about it first. If it requires special tools that I don't have, I'll hand it to the pro's.
    Simple plumbing or electrical breaks; as long as it doesn't require that I'm registered to do the work up to code (though I always try to meet the code requirements) I'll fix it.
    Whenever I used to work on my car, my ex used to look at me like I was doing brain surgery on the neighbors kids.

    I was raised in the country and we fixed just about everything.
    I have rebuilt lawnmower engines, strung barbed wire fences, built barns and livestock pens.
    I had a 69 Camaro and I performed most of the repairs on that honey of a car. Autos are way too complicated now for me to work on.
    I am very handy when I have to be.

    I'm not handy, I'm determined. If I want to do/fix something, I work at it maniacally. So, yes and no. Otherwise, I'm pretty lazy. lol.
