Many times have I reiterated a reiteration I reiterated many times in the past but still am I surprised when I must reiterate my reiteration yet again.
There is no such thing as a simple job.
People ask what will be the cost to fix this? Many times I answer: ” I have no idea” and this is why:
there really is no such thing as a simple job.
Many jobs are not straightforward out-of-the-box repairs.
The other day I went to tighten a stretched out cable for a suspended bird feeder.
Loosen the clamps, pull up the slack and tighten the clamps once again.
Unfortunately, the cable had not stretched. The fascia board loosely attached to the house was the culprit and became even looser when I stretched the cable taut.
20 feet above ground on a ladder and a good chunk of the afternoon to detach and reattach everything properly with reinforced hardware so the bird feeder cable would not sag was the actual repair requirement.
And this is not the first time things went awry in a quick hurry.
So reiterate after me:
THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A SIMPLE JOB.
