Periodically my dad thinks that he can repair a concern that should be left up to a professional.
When I was a kid, a lot of things in the house were not fixed correctly, because my dad was toiling on them.
The screen door on the front porch was broken because my dad did not know how to repair the screen. We had troubles with the car for weeks. My dad was convinced that he could repair the oil furnace and 1 time the people I was with and I chose to go without heat for a whole week. It was unquestionably frosty outside and the un-even temperatures were quite chilly. Everyone in the house was hopeful that Dad would call a oil furnace repair service. He tried troubleshooting the device a bunch of times and he was convinced 3 times in a row that he could solve the problem. On the 5th day that the people I was with and I did not have heat, my dad finally broke down and decided to call the oil furnace repair service. I swear that the repair worker was only in the house for an minute or multiple and he had the concern with the oil furnace fixed. After that, every time there was a problem, my mom insisted that my dad contact a repair service. If the people I was with and I had a concern with the plumbing, she was not going to lay around for weeks and weeks and wait for my dad to repair it. I understand that he was trying to be a helpful guy, however it was better to let someone else do the task. My dad was a whiz with a calculator, however he did not know the first thing about mechanics or engineering.
