In Other Words: Repair

Thanks to Patricia for our word prompt today.

Graham was in the repair business, but he soon had to fold.
His charges were reasonable with discounts for pensioners and the disabled.
However, in a throwaway society, who would pay £15 for something to be fixed when you could buy a new one for £5.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

        Here’s the early taste though:

        Daniel looked down in disgust as he started back down the ladder.

        Its a very good thing no one was down there and that he was only a few rungs up when the bag slipped from his grasp.

        All that was really hurt was his pride as the homeowner looked on at his slow decent from the roof top.

        He’d been at this profession for too many years for such a rookie mistake.

        Just now he was glad it was just the tools that took the tumble.

    This is so true. I remember when I was a little girl my father had a repair shop. He stayed pretty busy nut nowadays we would be hungry. Thanks for linking your lines.
