Father Fix-it

cookies-for-dadAt some point you have to stop calling dad every time something breaks around the house. And based on this survey, that point is…when you’re well into middle age. A new survey found the average age when people finally stop leaning on their dads to help fix stuff is 41. Men are just about as likely to rely on their dads as women. 70% of men say they still call their dads for help versus 75% of women. The difference is they way guys ask. With women it’s “Dad, I need help with…” When a guy asks it starts “I was thinking you could come over and we could work on laying the floor.” Translation: I don’t know what I’m doing and you’re my last hope before…I read directions.

Brent Lee

QMIX Afternoon Guy, Brent Lee, grew up near Greensburg -- where he started working on the radio at age 14. Growing up as an only child may have been lonely at times, but it led him to be the creative, fun guy we all enjoy on the radio! Brent graduated from North Decatur High School and Ball State University. His first summer during college, Brent actually filled-in as the QMIX Afternoon Guy all summer, when there was a full-time opening on our staff. Little did he know he would return to that job many years later. Brent has worked in radio all over Indiana (and a bit in Illinois too), claiming to never have had a real job. And he’s has been back at QMIX since 2011. We hope he’ll be here for a long time to come! Some of Brent’s favorite things are IndyCar, movies and good food!
