Wholesome Thread Delights In Vacation Dads Fascinated With Pool Repairmen
If Father's Day card designs are anything to go by, many men of a certain age enjoy the simple things in life. Sports, beer and fart jokes probably take the top spot, but a solid runner up has to be power tools. There are few more intimate relationships than a dad and the immaculately equipped toolbox in the garage that he never touches, apart from when another man's tools are involved.
This essential truth has been elegantly proved by @ellieq, when she came across some repairmen replacing a panel in the swimming pool at the resort she was staying at on holiday. She documented how more and more middle aged men gathered around over time to witness the repair, apparently hypnotized by the sound of the drill. Naturally, Twitter users were ready with the jokes at the sight of this nature documentary, with many commenting on how common this phenomenon really is. Forget sun, sea and sangria, the really relaxing part of vacation is watching other people do their jobs.
