Human nature to want to do something that you can instead of having someone else do it for you. I do like the logic though, ha, let me do you a favor and let you rake my yard for money. It's totally true, keeps the economy going, it just sounds funny. Could've paid someone to put in new floors this summer but instead did it myself with a friend. There's some aspect of something being fun to learn a new project too vs. paying someone to do a routine item that's just boring AF . Also an age factor I'd imagine too. My father now pays for a lot of things he used to do... once past 50 years old it seemed he started paying more and more for random things he never would've let someone go near when we were young kids and he was in his 30s/40s. Now past 60 he just wants to golf and pays for most mundane things. Low of 49F last night... god damn it is mild at night. These departures are insane. We learned our lesson, specifically with floors so I went the paid route. I’m sure our marriage could have survived a second attempt at installing floors ourselves. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
