Years ago, my wife told a friend that I didn't have very good handyman skills.

Things were new (ish), and put together fairly well, with modern materials. Our current house is apparently held together with various layers of glue, tape, and band-aids. I regret ever opening my mouth about my ability to use tools.
I have basic handyman skills. Can replace a faucet and do drywall etc, but finish carpentry is something I'm just not good at and am fine with it. Honestly anything more than simple repairs I prefer to hire out, easier for me than hearing about it if my fix goes wrong.
