Let’s see. Where were we? Oh, that’s right. Door #3! So, there I was on Tuesday evening driving home from work when my cell phone rings. It was Shawn.
Shawn: “Holy Shit. Holy Shit. Hooooo-lllllllllly SHIT.”
Shawn: “Holy Shit.”
Me: “A few more details would be nice.”
At this point, I honestly don’t know what to think. I mean, he’s basically speechless, so this is either really good or really bad. For a brief second, something crossed my mind and I thought “OMG! My prayers have been answered!” Wrong.
Shawn: “You know those cabinets hanging above the computer?”
Me: “Yeah, I know the cabinets.”
Shawn: “Well, one of them isn’t there anymore.”
Me: “What the?!”
Shawn: “It fell off the wall.”
Me: “I blame the installer.” (him)
Sigh. I could not believe this happened. The cabinet was directly above the computer monitor. And when I say cabinet, I mean cabinet, I don’t mean a book shelf, I mean a cabinet! See for yourself:
That’s the cabinet on the right side, the one that is still attached to the wall (for now). It doesn’t look too full, does it? I mean, they are designed for “storage,” right? I don’t remember seeing a weight limit anywhere!
Now, here is the cabinet from the left side, exactly how Shawn found it when he came home:
And here’s where it used to be:
Directly above the computer!
This is all that’s left now:
This post today is linked to Feel Good Friday, and you might be saying to yourself “Wha Wha WHAT?” Yes, my office is now a total disaster, and yes, it was most likely brought on by us. However, there are some things to feel good about. Most importantly, the computer somehow survived, even though I have no idea how. It’s a miracle! My camera which was spewed out of the cabinet, also survived, phew! And the cabinet? The cabinet is amazingly completely intact. So, those are all things to feel good about! Not to mention, we learned something from this:
1. Stop hoarding!
2. IKEA furniture is as tough as nails!
Oddly enough, when I told Shawn how amazed I was that the desk and cabinet were still in good shape, he said “Well, maybe it didn’t fall hard. It might have fallen slowly.” Um, yeah. Is it possible for a cabinet to fall off a wall in slow motion?
