Of course, people notice, irregardless of whether or not they actually say something about it. I know this applies to R, who in her infinite patience hasn’t complained about it, but deep in her heart she’s thinking, “What’s wrong with you? Just put the darn thing on.”
So I put it on. It took me a total of 2.5 minutes, and would have been quicker had I used an electric screwdriver, but I didn’t have one. Something to aspire to.
Until the next big project, thanks for reading.
