My husband has a temper.
I try to get him away from home projects because when they don’t go well, he goes insane.
It is not abnormal for him to whip his tools across the lawn, yell the F bomb and “punish” the project by leaving it. He doesn’t handle failure very well. Sometimes he even damages the project or hinders it with his outburst. The problem is that my husband is always eager to start one in the beginning. I bought a ductless mini split for the kitchen. I read online and saw that the HVAC installation could be done by the homeowner. I owned all the necessary tools and watched tons of videos. I did some practice drilling and read forums online. I was more than ready to do my ductless HVAC installation. When my husband saw me gearing up to go, he pushed me out of the way. He is the man after all, he can do it. Well he hadn’t done the research I had. He was constantly making mistakes and ruining my new HVAC unit. He started handling it roughly, swearing under his breath and I was worried about him denting the unit. When he thought that perhaps he needed a part and left for the hardware store, I got to work. I was frantic, hoping to finish before he got back. I got all the horrible drilling, feeding refrigerant tubes and wires out of the way. My husband came back when I was mounting the dinoor air handler. He was calm by then and the project was going well thankfully.
