As you already know, H is an engineer. He "rigs" stuff up. He can fix any and all things. They may not be to your liking, but, he will fix it.
Case and point #1.
A few months ago, one of our toilets broke. It's really not OUR toilet, as it's not OUR house. But, you get the point. H didn't want to bother the homeowners as he can fix the problem himself. So he did.
Then I went to the bathroom to find this:
Oh dear sweet Lard above.
Editors note: the toilet has since been fixed in a proper manner. A manner in which one doesn't have to tug on a zip-tie.
