Wife uses power tool as ‘bat signal’ to summon husband to fix things

If you have communication issues with your husband, apparently, there’s an unconventional solution out there. 

TikToker Tena Hull posted a quick clip on how she got her husband to finally work on home renovations. After waiting over a year to get started on projects, she was done asking the regular way. 


Who else has projects you’ve been waiting on for over a year?! 🙋🏼‍♀️ #husbandhack #diy #homerenovation #diyproject

“Summoning my husband to fix things for me,” the video text stated.

All Hull did was whip out her handy power drill and pull the trigger. The simple sound was enough to signal her husband from across the house. 

“What’s going on up there?” he shouted from another room. “Why do you have a drill?” 

The fish took the bait, and the funny clip received 5.4 million views on TikTok

“Tried it on my husband. The bat signal does indeed work,” a TikToker replied

“I walk by with tools. He asks if I want a level. I say ‘nah, imma eyeball it’. Immediately up,” a user said

“My husband forgets when we first lived together almost all of the tools we owned were mine. Somehow now he thinks he needs to save me from using them,” someone wrote

“Isn’t it AMAZING what they can actually hear?” a person added

“My husband literally turned around and asked what the sound was,” another commented
