How many Engineers does it take to replace a Ceiling Fan?
-- One to go buy a nice new fan on sale from Costco
-- One to click some pics of the old fan in attempt to post them on classifieds
-- One to take down the old ceiling fan
-- One to try mounting the new Costco fan only to realize it uses a different mount
-- One to further realize that the Costco fan once assembled couldn't be easily dismantled
-- One to pack up the round peg of the fan in the square hole of the box with the rod hanging out
-- One to go to Lowes to buy the same brand fan as the existing one
-- One to try mounting the Lowes fan only to realize it uses a third kind of "slightly" different mount
-- One to consider replacing the outlet box after realizing it took almost 4 hours the last time
-- One to give up on the supposedly mini project and decide to call an electrician
-- One to call the electrician.....the Electrician who comes and installs the new fan in less than 30 minutes start to finish
-- One to have his ego seriously hurt, smashed and hung over the new ceiling fan
-- One to pay the electrician more to install than it took to purchase the fan
-- One to post this blog post and go to sleep.
