A pro posted the challenge to “badly explain your job and let others guess what it is” in a home services Facebook group. He got some great responses back, and we chose some of our favorites for your enjoyment. Ready to play along?

Oh and be prepared, it gets a little raunchy.

“I make hot chicks not so hot.”

From the original poster, we’re starting off easy. Oh HVAC tech … you’re so powerful. (Eye roll)

“If it’s slippin or drippin I’m the guy”

Did you guess plumbing? You’d be right.

“I regulate atomic particles”

Let’s hope your local electrician is more … umm … smart.

“I search & destroy”

Who searches and destroys better than Terminator? Actually, he didn’t do a very good job … at least in the first movie. Who does do a good job of searching for and destroying the enemy? Pest control.

“I’ll mount you with the right hardware.. tightly.. durable.. stud mounted.”

The person who came up with this little gem was a home A/V Installer.

“I look through your window with a stick in one hand and rubber in the other.”

Window cleaner. That checks out. 

“With my mad skillz, I please the wives of husbands who — after years of marriage — still don’t know how to do it.”

Who knows how to make a lady smile better than her local pool boy … err … handyman … I mean, spouse? Also, for the record, ladies can fix things for themselves
