This morning after I woke up, I notice that the water is dripping on the faucet but it was turn off. I tried to tighten up, maybe my daughter left it loose. But still dripping. I called the maintenance but the the caretaker said he will be gone for a week. Oh what I'm gonna do? It's not good to waste water. I saw the my father's stuff and they have a spare of faucet and something to put like a white tape so the water will not drip. I just thought I can fix it. And yahoo I did it . It's so simple. Do you do the same thing fixing things around the house even it's for a man task? Or do you really have to call for an help?

For things like that I can handle my hands to do the job. Even washing the dishes is a part of my daily chores. One thing I can't fix is when the roof is leaking. I am not brave enough to go up to the top of the roof. I fear height.

I was once on top of the roof and I got my feet wobbly. I went back down very slowly. Since then on , I never wanted to do that any more.

As a woman who can rewire a plug and undo the pipes under the sink to unclog them, yes, I will fix what needs to be fixed around the house. In today's western society I think there isn't quite as much differentiation between a 'man's job' and a 'woman's place'. I see myself as equal to my man. There are tasks I cannot do because I do not know how and do not have the interest to learn. But I can use a drill, a screwdriver, a saw and a hammer. If I need to put up shelves, I can do it myself. I don't particularly enjoy that sort of thing, though I do get a sense of satisfaction, so I usually leave it to the man of the house who enjoys it, but if he's not here, I do not wait for him to get around to doing the work. Good on you for stopping the tap from dripping - girl power! :)

i am the oldest brother of our house and i am always the one fixing things around here since my dad doesn't want to hire and lose money in the process he just tells me stuff he use to do to fix up places when he worked in maintenance and worked his way up to manager when he was young so i am basically learning from a pro so soon i should be working in maintenance.(:
