There are plenty of jokes about how many imbeciles it takes to change a lightbulb. But the true punchline is this: Sometimes it really does take more than one person.
We have crazy-high ceilings—one electrician told me he’d have to build a scaffolding and get a permit from the city to change a bulb. Thankfully, we found someone with a really tall ladder to do it (no permit required). Pro tip: Get long-lasting LED bulbs.
Even if lightbulbs aren’t the biggest challenge in your home, rest assured you’ll be saddled with some simple-sounding piddly annoyance that will cause you to bang your head against the nearest wall.
Be careful not to bang too hard—you own that wall now.
