Tom Weber recently asked Wall Street Journal readers, “Are dads less handy around the house?” Tom admitted that he can connect up a stereo system or set up a wireless network, but can’t install shelves or unclog the toilet. Some readers agreed, suggesting that their spare time is better spend with their kids than on home repair, but others disagreed. In fact, some readers indicated that both adults in their household were “handy.”
What about you? How good are you at handling basic home repair work, and does that come at a price for you? Can you hook up your stereo and 802.11 as well?
