Real World Cinderella

Adam and Ray give advice on carpet cleaning, waterproofing, and fixing a rotted doorjamb. Later they chat about all the high school days that Ray skipped.

Show Summary

Adam and Ray go straight to your questions, right from the top of the show. The first question comes via video, and asks the guys advice on trying to fill and waterproof a fissure in the garage wall. The guys then respond to an email question about carpet cleaning, and tell some of their worst and funniest experiences from back in the day.

On the phone lines this week, the first caller is a woman trying to figure out if it’s safe to plunge her shower. The next caller is trying to patch a hole in his rotted doorjamb, and Adam and Ray offer three different ways to fix it. Later, the guys help callers with concrete counter tops, and a toilet that hasn’t flushed in years. As the show wraps up, the guys recall how they ranked among their former high school classmates, and tell stories from Adam’s pottery class.

    That picture of Ray reminds me of a date’s worst nightmare. A blue-colar, cashmire wearing, iron griped Dad. When he tells you “have her home by 11pm”, you better be listening Pencil-Neck!
