Awwww....FUDGE!

Was putting on new brake cables, housing and bar tape in the garage. Had just gotten done putting on the bar tape and needed to do a final trim of the brake housing when the SO comes in and starts picking things up, going through the toolbox, chatting and overall distracting me because she's bored. I put things down and show her around.

After 30 minutes, she leaves and I go cut the housing...WITH the brake cable inside! Awww fudge!

Go inside and we have a good laugh about it. Hopefully the LBS is open on Monday and I can snake the cable in without having to take off the bar tape.

Merry Christmas everyone!

You aren't the first and we won't be the last!

At least I thought she had made fudge and was enticing you in to have some...

Among professionals, it's usually the telephone.

Luckily you cut the right cable. The other opened a portal to Antichristmas, where Satan Claws waits to wreak vengeance with switches and lumps of coal. Very uncomfortable in cycling stockings.

Well tis the season and all...plus I figured she was showing some interest in one of my many hobbies and if I encourage her interest perhaps I get some leeway in funding levels

or

I could've gotten upset and opened the portal to anti-christmas like Canklecat said.
