Although the term is more peculiar to the Nineties (the modern term is "Maintenance Man") the Splackavellie has his place in the world.
Every man can't be a knight in shining armor, a complete gentleman -- the good guy. Some men are only good for one thing -- or a couple of things -- and should be judged on what they do rather than what you wish they'd do.
The Splackavellie knows that he isn't boyfriend material, that he's the dick in a glass case for when your man fucks up. That's his role, not driving kids to judo practice. You might do well to have one in your life. Just don't try and change him. An apple is not an orange, a hammer not a saw.
