Rock on gals! It's so good to hear this! From the reactions I have been getting lately, I really was starting to think I was the only one.
Within the past year I called someone to install a fence for my dogs and when he gave me an outrageous
price quote, I told him I'd rather put up the fence myself for $1000 in materials. He said.... "You have a husband that can do that for you?" Erm.... wait.... what?!
Shortly afterward I had to go to the store to pick up new filters for my R/O water filter and while the guy was helping me pick the right ones (first time I had to replace them) he said "Do you have a husband or boyfriend?" At first I thought he was hitting on me... and then he said "... because you can ask him what a strap wrench is. You'll need one." Ahem...
Especially cracks me up since my BF probably couldn't tell the difference between an alan wrench and a phillips... but yet I'm supposed to ask him what a strap wrench is... ok then.
Makes me want to take my belt sander to them!
