I tend to be 1 of those people who just hates to admit defeat. This is far more a function of ego than it does with some inherent prowess for all things. I am ridiculously normal in my skills as well as abilities. However, I get it in my head that I can fix any situation. That goes for all the stuff that goes wrong around my home. My actual repair skills are limited to somewhere in the replacing a burned out bulb or changing the Heating as well as A/C air filters in our house. Beyond that, I should not be fooling with stuff. It always ends in me getting blasted by my partner as well as a whole bunch of self loathing. Yet, just as Springtime follows winter, I continue to carry on. A year or so ago, I had a friend call me to see if might come over as well as help him with an Heating as well as A/C repair. This guy is actually entirely well equipped when it comes to performing most household repairs. He is a mechanical engineer by trade so, his understanding of how things operate is vast. The problem he was having was that there was a leak in a refrigerant line in the Heating as well as A/C unit outside of his house. He needed my help to hold a light as well as pass him tools as he detachd as well as replaced the faulty Heating as well as A/C line. This Heating as well as A/C repair went appreciate clockwork as well as his Heating as well as A/C was back up as well as running. So, because I had watched an Heating as well as A/C repair, I thought I was up to trying 1 recently. It went pretty much as you would think. What would have been about a hundred as well as fifty dollar repair became a nightmare that ended up costing me over a grand.
