Jimmy Fixes His Door
Monday, May 25, 2015
Jimmy lives on the second floor of a six-unit apartment building. His
front door has two locks -- a security deadbolt, and a regular
door handle lock. The front door also has a peephole -- a tiny
piece of glass through which Jimmy can look out his door at about
eye-level to "preview" who is knocking on his door or ringing his doorbell.
The peephole is a security device, but Jimmy never uses it. When
someone knocks, he just opens the door. First of all, he lives
in a safe neighborhood, so security is not really a problem.
Second, people rarely knock on Jimmy's door, so
he is always eager to greet a visitor.
Before you can knock on the front door, you have to push
the button on the black screen door to open the screen door.
The screen door has an inside lock on it, but the lock has not
worked since the screen door was installed more than two years ago.
This has bothered Jimmy from day one. Today, Jimmy finally
decided to do something about the lock on the screen door.
It was a nice, warm sunny day. Jimmy was in his shorts -- no flip-flops, no shirt.
The lock was part of the screen door pushbutton handle.
The outside and inside handles were held together with
just two screws. Jimmy got a flathead screwdriver and
loosened both screws. He kept adjusting the screws, and
pushing on the outside button. Eventually he adjusted the
screws enough to where the lever stayed in the locked position
when he pushed on the outside button.
Finally, he had made the right adjustment.
But now he needed to put a spacer on the inside handle to maintain
that adjustment. He found a piece of plastic that was just
the right thickness. He inserted the plastic between the
handle and the doorframe itself, and then he tightened the
two screws. Bingo! It worked perfectly. He could push on
the outside button with all his might, and the lever would
remain locked. Jimmy grinned. The screen door finally worked properly!
Jimmy had fixed a two-year-old problem in less than an hour.
He was ecstatic. He returned the screwdriver to the toolbox, thinking "I'm a genius."
