My husband is the sort of man who can fix anything - as long as it can be fixed with "Gaffer" tape. It is an essential part of our camping gear, and is used widely around the house and garden. He recently discovered that the father of one of the young man's friends had never owned any, and he now considers him a lesser man! He was thrilled to see it so widely used in Paris (although I think this was parcel tape). Now that's what he calls "fixed".
