Men things.....Nevermind

Services for Real Estate Pros with Referral Group Incorporated

I never really believed in this kind of stuff but every once in awhile something happens at my house and try as I do, I just can't get it. Last night, the lock fell of of my garage side door. All the pieces were there and I tried for almost an hour and couldn't get it. It will snow later and so I had to call the locksmith. I hate when this happens. 

So my friends here have reminded me it is just a matter of knowledge and not sex. Sorry in my frustration I forgot.

When you think about real estate, it is time to focus. I have helped people for close to thirty years in all areas, and made the process not only simple but enjoyable. Why should you go it alone or settle for less? Call me and find a partner to help, direct and get you where you want to be.

Agreed.  That locksmith could easily have been a woman.

No worries about sex type, I possess zero mechanical skills so I always hire out.

Hi Carol. I did call a pro. It took him about 30 seconds to fix the fallen lock but while he was here I had him look at another and it was replaced.    Sheila

Very true, sex really does not determine anything. Knowledge often does. Which is why I admire so many women who know so much more than me.

Sheila,

My father in law and his brothers were clueless when it came to fixing anything, and it was a joke in the family.  Ron is good at some things, and I am at other things...I can fix a sprinkler system and install one also.  We both know when it is time to call in a pro...just ask Apple Care.  LOL A

Until such time as when I started working repos, I wasn’t very handy. I became a lock and re-key specialist. It is more involved than one would think Sheila Anderson

I feel your pain, Sheila!  As a strong woman, I have always reasoned that I could do most anything a guy could do, unless it required a lot of strength.  Even then, I've managed a few times with pullies, etc.  However, it isn't always a guy vs. gal thing.  It's about who has the knowledge and skill.  And, no, the Internet does not have all the answers!

Thanks Myrl. The guy was here for the dropped lock about 30 seconds. Fortunately I had him look at another lock that leads to my deck from the inside that was loose. He replaced that one too so I'm ahead of the game and averted a big problem. TY      Sheila

Hi Sheila - the way I look at it is that it's not that I can't, it's that I don't have an interest in doing something...like fixing a car!  I'm sure I could if I had an interest in it but I don't!!

Morning Sheila.

While most men have an issue for calling someone to help on certain issues, I am not one of those.  I know my limitations
