    I like to think I’m mechanically inclined. Well, I took the ASVAP (100 years ago) and scored high on that part, if I remember correctly. I like to fix stuff and kind of pride myself on it, since it bucks the stereotypes. However, I’m not sure I’d say it was second nature. I have to think and figure out each challenge. Still, at least I’m not scared of it.

    I can put things together and tend to have the male stubborn attitude of not using a manual though for me it works (am just trying to be snotty, did it work? dang)… um I am right brained?

    I would say very….

    I’m not bad but my wife….

    Before the Navy Yard closed she was the Nuclear Shipfitter Shop Foreman. She can fix bunches of stuff.

    Sadly the government won’t let us own our own nuclear reactor so those skills are pretty much wasted.

    I’m not overly inclined, but I can fix small stuff if I have to or if I’m just sick of waiting for my husband to do it!

    I was the child who would take things apart and put them back together for fun!
    When I managed restaurants the owners loved me because I would fix equipment on my own instead of paying someone else to do it. More money on the bottom line meant a bigger bonus for me! 🙂

    I can use a hammer. I can put a nail in a wall or any other hard surface. I can also use a screwdriver but only the old fashioned ones that I turn myself.

    Oh, and I’m the QUEEN of duct tape!

    Does any of this count???

    mssc, haha!

    I am TERRIBLE….”Hunny, which one is the screwdriver?” Ok, I know that one, but all the others I can’t even think of the names!

    I follow directions very good though! While my husband’s deployed, if again, I will have my share of practice….or I’ll just call over his buddy! 🙂

    I’m a typical daughter of an engineer.. Why pay others to fix something you can fix by yourself.

    I know just about every tool there is to know. Jason is so handy when it comes to his Mama but not here!!! I want something done…I do it myself or I’d be waiting forever!! I fix most everything and I move everything. If it’s out of my hands I ask my brother to do it.

    If it’s broke I’ll figure out a way to fix it. Give me a glue gun, power tool of any kind (might end up breaking it..)..yep a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do right?

    Not very mechanical, but I enjoy that look of fear in my husband’s eyes when I say, “Do you know where I can find a hammer and some nails?” It’s a thrill to watch him squirm to figure out a way to ask me what I want them for–or trying to say he doesn’t have any–when I know his garage of eternal junk has all kinds of nails, tools, and other implements of destruction. I mean, uh, construction. I guess his fear is well-founded. Lift any picture in this house that I’ve hung and you may find half a dozen holes behind it–where if it didn’t look right–I’d just pull out the nail and make a new hole. What does it matter if they’re under the picture, right??

  13. Joy says:

    LOL G-Ma, that sounds like me!!! I have pictures hanging up that I don’t even want there anymore to hide holes!!! LMAO!!!

    I always think I’m not mechanically inclined, but then when I put my mind to something, either by necessity or inspiration, I often surprise myself. Haven’t quite come to terms with this aspect of ability.
