A long time ago I learned the important lesson of letting a professional take care of your mistakes. It’s easy to think that you are capable of anything under the sun simply because you have a talent with your hands and one day, instead of calling one of the electricians in chester, I decided that I would be able to do my own electrical wiring for my home on my own. Oh, sure, I had done some small electrical work here and there over the years but this was going to be my biggest project yet and I felt rather confident that I would be able to complete it correctly and quickly, as well as more cheaply than any of the electrical companies would have cost me. Oh, boy, was that the biggest mistake I’ve ever made! Shortly into the weeks long project, I had done something terrible and managed to set the house on fire.
Luckily I was able to douse the flames before it spread any further than the box and the wall but the damage was done and my entire electrical grind ended up being fried. Instead of saving myself the couple thousand dollars I thought I would I ended up spending almost ten more thousand dollars simply because I wanted to do it on my own. I’ve made some foolish mistakes before but this was definitely the worst of them. I can’t believe I had been such a bumbling fool and tried to do something as intense as a project like wiring an entire house myself. Sometimes I have a problem looking at the entire picture and only saw myself doing it and finishing it, not the steps that were in between start and finish. Luckily, I’ve learned a valuable lesson and I have never made another mistake quite like that again!
