A Cautionary Christmas Tale: Don’t Let This Happen to You!
Here’s a little holiday story we want to share with our readers. Once upon a time there was die-hard do-it-yourselfer. He mows his own lawn, fixes his leaky faucets, and even changes his own oil. That kind of guy…we all know them.
It was approaching the holidays, and he was inspired while watching The Great Christmas Light Fight on TV. He thought to himself, “Heck, yeah! I could do that.” So the next day he headed to his local big box store and loaded up his cart full to the brim with Christmas lights and decorations.
He arrived home and unloaded his purchases from the car while his kids watched in wonder. As he was walking across the lawn, the well-meaning do-it-yourselfer tripped on a landscaping rock and dropped the heavy load he was carrying. When he bent to pick everything up, he pulled a muscle in his back.
But he was a trooper, so he pushed through the pain because he didn’t want to let the kids down. They were so excited about the beautiful light display he was about to install.
He grabbed his rickety ladder, leaned it up against the house, and began installing the lights. But they were crooked. “Ugh,” he thought, “that’s not the look I’m going for.” So he started over. Still crooked. He started to perspire as he became more and more frustrated.
His wife came out to check on his progress. As he turned to look at her, he lost his balance and fell off the ladder, twisting his ankle. While he was laying on the ground, the mosquitos found him.
Back and ankle aching, dripping in sweat, and cursing to himself under his breath, still he pushed on. He didn’t want to disappoint the kids who were hoping to be the envy of the neighbors.
Several hours later, our sweaty, aching, itchy do-it-yourselfer finished decorating and was ready to behold his handiwork. He plugged the lights into an extension cord. Sparks begin to fly, singeing his eyebrows. Clearly, he miscalculated the electrical load.
Meanwhile, his neighbor across the street was enjoying a cold beer while watching the game. His brilliant No Fuss Lights were the talk of the neighborhood. This neighbor knew his limitations and understood that sometimes it’s just better to hire the experts.
