Hanging Pictures


Ever notice how simple hanging a picture is for a woman?  Have picture, get nail, find something to hit nail with (a shoe, a rock, a metal ornament, the handle of a big knife, the butt of a gun, etc) and hang picture.  No need to climb on anything or measure .. just look, point, pound, hang.


A man has to book a day to do it ... usually weeks in advance.  He has to have a special breakfast, he has to be dressed for the job, and he has to bring out his 5000 lb tool box and his trailer full of electronic gadgets.  He has to measure and mark, wear a pencil behind his ear, get the ladder, laser it, stud find, spend 12 hours eliminating the nail candidates,  - holding a pageant, crowning miss congeniality, declaring the runnerups and finally awarding the crown  - and then try out 8 hammers for the "feel" before selecting one and hitting the nail twice.


And the picture is always hung so high you get a nose bleed trying to look at it .. and it is crooked ...
