I’m the person who suggested using the “buddy” system for following directions/instructions especially when assembling something. The very first primary rule of picking a buddy is that he/she should NEVER, EVER, NEVER be one’s spouse. That’s a set-up for an explosion. My husband and I tried putting up some wall paper together. We had to get different buddies to finish the job and to avoid a double homicide.
