It's more like fear of breaking the damned thing and not having any money for repair or replacement.

Why lazy?My husband did most DIY things round the house when the children were small when I did the cooking and cleaning. There were some things, like childrens wardrobes, or birthday cakes that we did together, and we made a pretty good team.I would say that between me working and him doing childcare, and us doing everything in the house and garden between us,we did okay,and both had plenty of time for fun with the children.

Our beloved assistance dog used to regularly break the front door Yale catch, when he pulled on the cord to open it for hubby. One day, after buying yet another locking system, I was taking the insides of the new one out, to screw them into the old casing, in my 'scruffs' and all of a mess ............... when a well-to-do woman friend of hubbys dropped by in her classy car and expensive white coat and jeans. Of course the front door was wide open and "Oh", she said to me "you're doing MAN'S JOBS."
I bit my lip. With such a small job and hubby unable to physically do things, what choice did (DO) I have? Cheeky woman, who ought to have known better. It really upset me at the time, though, as she walzed in and completely ignored me after that.
