My Dad Still Fixes My Car For Me
We rely on our dads when we're kids and it turns out not much changes when we get to be adults.
There's a new survey out there that says we rely on our dads to fix things until we're 41. It's primarily home repair stuff but my dad hooked me up with a pink tool set when I left for college so I'm set there!
Actually, that's not true. My dad is really smart (and I'm not just saying that.) He's really good at fixing things -- cars, computers, leaky faucets. You name it and he can fix it. In some ways I'm like him because I just play around with things until they work the way I want them to. He's just really good like that.
Since he's so good at those things I have him look at my car problems before I ever have a mechanic look at it. Even if he can't fix it, he usually knows what the problem is and sometimes he finds things I that I didn't even know were a problem. Then comes the lecture...gotta love dads!
What do you still have your dad fix for you?
