One of the Guys
Since buying the house we have acquired a "tree guy" from my father in law. To my great sadness we had a huge ash tree in the front yard that needed to be taken down. Next we got a "HVAC guy" because the furnace and AC needed replacing. Last night I was working with our "lawnmower guy" because our mower was acting up. My wife found a "piano tuning guy" this week (we don't even have a piano yet). Currently we are looking for an "electrical guy" for some minor rewiring around the house. We also need a "fridge guy" (we are looking for a good deal on a fridge), a "drywall guy" (we are planning to finish the basement), and a "plumbing guy" (because our sump pump needs to be rerouted).
Buying a house sure does require a lot of work, and to think I figured it would be a simple prospect. So do any of you have "guys" for anything, or are you one of those "guys"? I used to be the parking guy for many of my friends, and now I am the map guy for people who need a map made. Let me know in the comments.
By the way this isn't meant to be misogynistic they could just as easily be "Gals".
