My sons have used duct tape on hockey sticks in need of quick repair, and my husband has declared a piece a Band-Aid on a cut sustained at work. It is the cure all, save all solution…in a pinch. But there are some circumstances it should not be used, so welcome to Ya Jagoff’s Do’s and Don’ts of Duct tape.
- DO: Use a piece of tape to repair a broken shoe heel.
- DON’T: Use it on someone’s mouth to keep them silent. It is kind of against the law.
- DO: Write your name on duct tape to declare identity, just to mark that it is yours and not lose it.
- DON’T: Roll it into balls and throw it at other people, no matter what they have done to deserve the target.
- DO: Use a piece or two to fix a tent. It is actually the most common use of the tape.
- DON’T: Think that using pieces, no matter how many or how often you change them out for fresh pieces, will be a fix for a vehicle blemish.
Okay, we need a little more time on this tip. I mean who thinks that a vehicle weighing an average of 4,000 pounds, made of aluminum and steel among other things, that is kept in all sorts of weather could be best serviced with duct tape? This vehicle owner. Have you heard of Angie’s List for a mechanic, ya jagoff?
