Handyman Failure #2

Filed under: Stuff I Just Wanted To Say — lbej @ 10:42

I do not know the right way to turn a screw or a bolt to tighten rather than loosen.  My instincts are wrong every time, and so even if someone else tells me which way to turn a particular bolt I will fail again as soon as I have cause to reorient myself.  Words like clockwise and counterclockwise have no meaning to me except in the context of an actual clock.



  1. Some wisdom that has helped with my similar deficiency…”righty tighty, lefty loosey”…
