My dad always told me when I was growing up that you want to have a few different types of people around in your life. Having people who are all different brings more to your life and you learn a lot about yourself and the world when it works out correctly. I knew that this was true, and my dad was really sweet about the whole thing when he asked if I had a friend who could put in Queens shower installations because he wanted to do some work in his house but he did not know anyone who would be able to do what he wanted. My dad is old school and told me that he used to do everything himself, I told him that I knew that of course and I appreciated all he did while I was growing up. He was looking for someone to put in a simple sink.
I would have done it but I was away for work for two weeks on the other side of the country. I was hoping that I would be able to go and actually find someone who would be able to help online, but I knew that I had to call all of our family and friends and ask for help because my dad is too proud. My dad used to be able to do everything by himself but he does not get around like he used to because of a bad back. Also it would be hard for him to get up and down on his knee, as he had both knees done a few years ago. I told him there was nothing for him to do and I found a cousin who would go over the same day to help him with the sink and it was for free.
