I buy alot of crap from amazon, and one thing that annoys me is having to assemble everything
- I bought a desk for my PC, the self fell off completely because i lost the screws
- Bought gaming chair and because I didn't use a the right size tool the damn thing damn near broke my back
-Bought a TV Mount, a week later the TV broke.
Walmart and other companies offer to assemble the parts for like a $100. That's too much. If someone came and fixed it for like 20$ and a pepsi id be thrilled
@mohamed_salad That's basically not possible in developed countries as it involves human labor... I grew up in Morocco and delivery + assembly were included in the price and you could just give a 2 to 5$ tip to the guys. But I came to France and had to learn to do it by myself :D You can't pay for 1 or 2 hours of labor 20$ here.
@mohamed_salad@khalid_b Same experience in India. Pretty much all housework, manual labor is outsourced due to the amount of available labor. There's a company called Urban Co. which has done a fantastic job organizing that sector. I think Thumbtack does the same in the US, although I'm sure at a much higher price.
The one hobby which I developed over past few years is gardening.And I know several out there picked up this as hobby during lockdown. Gardening is an acquired skill and experience have definitely taught me , sowing seeds and waiting it to grow and then again waiting it to yield is very tough and requires a lot patience.I would like to see indoor gardening farming models to be commercialized in countries like canada (place I live) and US and other countries where we have over 6 months of winter.Winter is extreme in here and keeping plants(herbs/vegetables) inside majority of times fails in here.And without right temperature and conditions there are chances plants can get spoiled too.
I am currently working on the model for this .Would really appreciate feedback from the community?
