We have all said with bravado, "I don't need to call someone...I can do it myself!" And we all have those hidden talents and the abilities to work things out in a pinch. But without the tools and the training, the kitchen is a mess and the dinner is burnt...the car is up on blocks, new parts still in the box, and the bolt is stripped...the new deck falls during the cookout and that 'little cut' is more serious so we take time from work to visit the doctor.
I'm really not trying to ruin your day. You see, I am that guy on many occasions. But, I have learned to see when I am out of my element and call for help. I am always amazed at how easy they make it look and how fast they get the job done. Remember, they have years of study, the right tools, and the practice to know how to handle the situation as it arrives. So...can I do your job?
Maybe, but I know I can do mine.
