“You know how I’ve got a guy for everything? Well, they’re all in New York. My suit guy, my shoe guy, my ticket guy, my club guy… and if I don’t have a guy for something I have a guy guy to get me a guy. And oddly enough, his name is Guy.”Every time Barney Stinson says "I have a guy for that" it totally resonates with me because I? Say that all the time. And it's true. I have a guy for almost anything you can think of. Need a plumber? I can give you no fewer than four numbers of guys I know. Carpentry? Check. Electrician? You betcha. Landscaper? Yep. Tech guy to fix your computer? Heck, back in my teaching days (when kids brought in their work on floppy disks, yo) I had a rep of being That Lady Who Knew a Guy who could get almost anything--anything--off that disk so a kid could turn in their work. I was legen (wait for it....) dary for knowing a guy who could pull data off a disk.
I have a small engine repair guy. I have a car repair guy. I have a tree guy, a wetlands guy and a prairie guy. I can find a guy who can get you hooked up with fireworks and game tickets and used cars and custom-built cabinetry (actually, these are four different guys). I have a guy who does brick work, I know a floor guy, a pinball machine repair guy, a guy who paints, a drywall guy, a guy who can fix your antique grandfather clock, a guy who can clean your carpet, a guy who can dig a pond in your back yard and sell you the gravel to line the bottom of it.

Here and there I continue to collect all nature of guys who do various things. If you required a guy, I could recommend my financial adviser guy, my bank guy, my butcher guy and my heating and cooling guy.
Yeah, I have a guy for that. And they're all really good guys. When a fellow Bumble Book Clubber, girlfriend, neighbor, mom at a baseball game muses, "Oh, _____ is broken at our place and we need to find someone to repair/build/replace it." That's when I announce, "I have a guy for that." It's true. I always do.
