At 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.
