Vancouver’s worst handyman
I’ve been seeing these posters all around the city advertising this Canada’s Worst Handyman show. I don’t recall anyone contacting me.
I guess they’re looking for guys who claim to do this kind of work for a living. Still, I think my total shredding of some $150 Home Depot (I couldn’t do it, they couldn’t help) blinds on my first effort ought to at least put me in the running. I’ve also been known to leave my thumb a swollen, throbbing wreck after any effort at hammering nails into wood.
I blame my upbringing. Note to new parents everywhere: “Hold this, no, you’re not holding it right, aw crap, hold it even, why can’t you do anything, just watch me, you’re completely useless, just stand over there and don’t touch anything” is not a good way to instruct kids in the ways of building and fixing stuff.
I should be finishing therapy any day now.
