What do you do when something breaks in your house? If you’re in your 20s or 30s, odds are your answer is . . . you call your dad.
According to a new survey, the most common DIY strategy for millennials is to call their dad . . . 45% of them say that’s their first move.
About 35% will actually try to fix it themselves, and 20% will call a professional.
The survey also found one out of 10 people have NEVER picked up a screwdriver, hammer, or paintbrush to work on their own place.
So why can’t they do their own repairs? That’s ALSO something they dump on their dads. Six out of 10 millennials say their dads didn’t do a good enough job teaching them how to be handy.
