Professional vs. D-I-Yer

25 Nov

Kent Hughes said that finding the right word is the difference between lightning and a lightning bug. The same can be said of the difference between a professional and a D-I-Yer.

Our toilet was leaking at the base which we surmised was due to the seal failing. Normally, I would do the work myself to replace the seal. However, in my current state with a broken leg, that is not realistic. A friend recommended a plumber. We called him last night and he showed up at 7:15AM this morning. He was in and out in less than 30 minutes and only charged us $85. It would have taken me at least two hours, two trips to Home Depot, and a load of laundry to do what he did. Having the right person with the right know-how and the right tools makes a huge difference.
