Technisches Englisch (16)
Nowadays many people simply throw things away when something is broken. It hasnʼt always been like this. Older people, for example, know all about repairing things, replacing a button or reattaching a broken wheel because they have seen bad economic times as well. The truth is that today some things are cheaper to dispose of and replace with a new model than to repair. So, before a handyperson is hired to fix the broken item, the cost should be considered. Or could you perhaps do it yourself? These are some of the considerations Jack is going to explain to one of his customers.
