-Get up!
Come on, Stan, get up. Let's go.
-What, Dad?
Let's go. I'm sick of this shit.
Okay. It has come to my attention lately that young people today don't know how to do shit. You got your phones and your AI and you kids haven't learned to be able to actually do anything. So we're going to take this morning to learn how to fix something. You see this? See this? The oven door isn't working. It's falling off the hinges. So what do we do?
- I don't know.
It's very simple. You gotta make the hinges tighter so the oven door's more secure. So what you do is... you take out your phone and you call the handyman.
(line ringing)
HANDYMAN (over phone): Hello?
Hello. It's Randy Marsh.
My oven door is not working. Please come fix it.
Now we rest until the handyman comes.

This B plot was embedded in the new episode called "The Panderverse".

The concept in the episode is that the same redneck that said "Dey tuuk urrr jerbs" 15 years ago is now affluent and buying dot com companies and spaceships because he's rich from fix-it work for white collar losers who don't know how to change batteries in a smoke detector, and the like.

Later in the episode there's a scene where white collar graphic artists, attorneys, geologists, accountants, etc are hanging out in front of Home Depot looking for gigs and scornful Mexican contractors drive by and yell at them to get lost because they're making the store look bad.

The comments on this preview video include a LOT of repair guys and freelance contractors who basically say that the episode is 100% true to life and they actually do have extremely high demand for really basic repairs.
