    Duct Tape It

    What is the stupidest fix it job you've ever done in your house?
    Some people duct tape a lot of stuff.

    I nearly blew my house up changing a light fixture.

    Tell me your story.

    Well currently I have duct tape holding together my keyboard tray on my computer desk, I've used the decorative purple incase the fashion police come to check.


    I got fussed at from my brother last year for trying to duct tape the push lawn-mowers wheel on... I couldn't get it fastened with a screw driver...so duct tape to the rescue!!

    Apparantly the pipes to the sink had a crack in them and over the years crap had built up and sealed the crack. When he poured the drain cleaner down the drain, it ate through the crap that had sealed the pipe. Which led to water running down the wall to an electrical outlet.

    You can forgive him that one, that could happen to anybody.

    It was funny though, cause I could here my son telling his dad that he was in trouble. And that he was gonna tell on him.
