How handy are you?

When something breaks who fixes it? Do you know how, or do you hire someone? Do you know how to put something together with tools (ex: bed, bookshelf, tv stand)? Or does a friend or family member help?

I am not handy. The maintenance man fixes things, my stepfather puts things together.

I'm pretty darn handy either house or car. I was a mechanic in the military so while I can do the maintenance on my car I no longer have all the tools for it not to mention most is still under warranty so I have the dealer do most. The house, I got my management company mad at me because I fixed my own toilet, I got tired of waiting for them to come do it.

I am not handy at all . . . I can sew (basic - nothing complex) and that's about it. I call my dad or someone on my list who can help. About the only thing I'm good for is offering them a beer while they work.

I normally can do pretty much anything myself.

I can do anything that comes with directions.  Im pretty handy.  I can do basic car mainenance and change a tire.  I can take apart clogged pipes and clear them.  The only thing i really wont mess with is electric.  It scares me.  haha!

 I wouldn't call myself handy but I can fix a lot of things. I can pout things together with tools and stuff like that. I am renting so I jsut call the landlord, but small things that need fixing that I can not do I call my dad. He's very handy. :)

I'm pretty handy, depends on what it is.

If it's something I am unsure of I either figure it out by researching online, or getting help from my dad.

I can put together furniture, clear a drain, do basic maintenance on a car, some home repair, but I never mess with electricity. I wouldn't say I'm exactly handy, just get done what needs to be done.
