Every small town across the country must have at least one such man. He is not just any man. But he could be your next door everyman. And if you are out there tonight, he could be your handyman aurora calling card. He is the main man. This is a guy that loves the jobs you would normally hate. This is a man who has his own ways and means committee. It is all in his head. Or maybe even he has someone along to help him out.
This, as it turns out, does make practical sense. If he is a handyman, he must be a practical guy, with loads of commonsense in his head. There is just no way that he is going to go onto that roof of yours to repair a couple of damaged tiles unless he has a feller down below to hold the ladder steady still. He cannot afford an accident anyhow because he still has quite a few more house calls to make before this day is out.
If you break it, he will fix it. He will at least try. Strictly speaking, there are no jobs too big or too small that he will not handle. But in reality, there will always be those complex cases that even he is not prepared to handle. And yet still, even here he is still your main handyman in town. Looking for a specialist contractor, and at the right price too, can be hard going. The handyman can help you out with that.
Let’s just say that he knows people. That must be a characteristic trait of the guy’s personality. He is a people’s person. Would have to be if he’s going to be making so many house calls.
