Manual Dexterity, or Lack Thereof......

This is interesting information, but not totally unexpected on my part. I've noticed this for awhile now. My son-in-law really knows computers, but is an alien to basic mechanical skills.

Quote:Millennial dads have pathetic DIY skills compared to baby boomers

Are dads’ essential DIY skills in decline? According to new research, millennial dads are less capable than their own dads when it comes to everyday DIY fixes, preferring to rely on professional help instead.

A new poll of 1,000 millennial dads and 1,000 baby boomer dads found that when a DIY task needs to be done at home, more than half of millennials prefer to call a professional.

And when it comes to emergency “handiness” scenarios, millennial dads fall short in almost every category.

Millennial dads are less likely than their boomer counterparts to be able to change a car tire on the side of the road, unblock a toilet or sink, reset a tripped circuit breaker or even open a stuck pickle jar with their hands.
