18 people who had no common sense when making repairs

How do you go about getting something fixed in your house? Do you call a professional or do you tend to play around and try to find the solution on your own? In some cases, you might be disappointed.

Of course, you have a better chance of getting results that fall short of your expectations when you do it yourself. This is because you just might not be very handy around the house. And you might end up with some pretty bizarre repairs – maybe even a major fail – like the ones below.
