A great article in the Daily Mail yesterday told of Mr Barry Witham’s disastrous attempts at DIY which saw him attending hospital many times as a result of;
- Slicing open his thigh with a Hobby knife while laying carpet
- Stabbing himself with a screwdriver while mending speakers
- Falling through the ceiling from the loft
- Bringing down the kitchen ceiling while fitting a light
Mr Witham’s wife, Donna has now put her foot down (In a safe place one would hope!) and banned him from DIY.
Mr Witham, on the other hand, is not deterred. His statement that “I think I’m a bit unlucky” is priceless.
