The Best Kept Secret of the Rich – Leverage
My wife was recently subtly pointing out little things around the house that needed doing, as wives often do on Saturday afternoons when they sense you’re about to reach for a cool drink and a bit of downtime.
“Maybe you should get someone to come out and fix the silicon that’s coming off around the shower”, came the helpful suggestion.
Indignant that she implied I wasn’t capable of performing such a simple repair, I set out to prove her wrong and reclaim my manhood.
“I’ll fix this”, I said in my most macho voice as she rolled her eyes and left me to it.
Several visits to the local hardware store and a few hours later, I was proudly exhibiting the fruits of my labor.
Fast forward a few weeks and mold started showing up behind the silicon repair I’d made.
I finally gave in and called a professional.
