I’m assuming the owner didn’t say thank you ?I was painting a large common entry door at a duplex. Ordinarily there is not a lot of money in this type of work but they were long-term customers and wanted to do right by them.
Typically I take the door knob and lock set and deadbolt off prior to painting. It needed a real heavy sanding because there were many coats of paint on there. If I smooth it out properly it would look pristine - especially for a 50 year old door.
Well that was also a 50-year old lock with some broken pieces. The lock worked but that's because the broken pieces were held into place.
I spent 6 hours putting it all back together. There was no way to buy a replacement given its age. It really was a frustrating day of trial and error lining up the mechanisms.
Yeah, smart move Duke. I liked how you handled the detective.
OMG...this is SOOOOO you! I have to laugh but your Angel wings are a beautiful thing, girl.I am a easy touch and have often been taken advantage of, even knowingly so, lol. The funniest one I can remember was when I was talked into taking two seniors to a movie in the park (free to the local public). When I pulled up to pick them up there was a parade of elders piling into my car, including one with a wheel chair and oxygen. Thank goodness I had room in the back. Once we arrived I had to make multiple trips to get popcorn and drinks. They had a good time and I had a nervous breakdown.
