Garage Door Repair Story

< ?php the_author(Bryan McIntyre); ?>

Every Friday morning Phyllis had a hair appointment. This Friday was no different. She gathered her keys, the household checkbook, her bag and headed for the garage. She pushed the button to open her garage door and … Absolutely nothing happened.

Her regular day had unexpectedly come to be not so regular. Irritated, she pushed the button a 2nd, then a 3rd time. The garage door refused to budge. Then she did exactly what every housewife does when something in the house does not work, she called out to her spouse, Don.

Don, questioning \”just what now?\” sauntered to the garage to offer aid and comfort to Phyllis. They have been married a long time and he consistently responded to Phyllis\’s summons. It was just one of the keys to their relationship.

He repeated Phyllis\’s effort and pushed the button several times himself. Darn! The garage door steadfastly refused to budge. Again he asked yourself \”exactly what now?\” just this time it was directed at the garage door, not Phyllis.

Then Don saw that the two springs at the top of his door didn\’t look the same. Better assessment exposed that one of the springs was broken. \”Geesh! An additional repair cost! Just exactly what I need.\” thought Don.

\”Just how am I getting to my hair appointment if the door won\’t open?\” asked Phyllis, \”The vehicle is in the garage.\” She said, stating the noticeable.

Don thought for a moment, then a concept flashed through his head. \”Hold on a second, I think I can open the door for you.\”

He went to the cord hanging from the garage door opener\’s track and gave it a yank. The opener system clicked and lo and behold, the garage door opener was detached from the garage door. \”Progress!\” he thought.

Then he got hold of the garage door handle and pulled. The garage door came up to Don\’s knees.

\”Give me a hand here, I think we can get the door open.\” stated Don. Phyllis dutifully placed both hands under the bottom of the door and lifted. Between the two of them they had the ability to raise the garage door as far as Phyllis can reach. Enough to get the vehicle out.

Then she let go.

Immediately the garage door crashed closed. Don, still holding the door by the handle, tumbled forward into the door, then in reverse into the vehicle. Then he slumped to the garage floor.

Phyllis shrieked. Don swore. At the very least he was still conscious, however he lay on the cement floor doing a mental count of his body parts.

After a few minutes, Don tried to get up, however his back shrieked, \”Don\’t!\” Don lay between the vehicle and the door asking yourself just exactly what to do next.

Phyllis didn\’t delay. She had actually seen Don\’s body being thrown around by the crashing door and knew he had to be injured. Luckily the 911 operator responded quickly and Don was quickly on the way to the medical facility. They needed to carry him through the house and out the front door to put him in the ambulance. The whole neighborhood watched.

The noticeable lesson. Garage doors are heavy. If your door does not work, don\’t mess with it. Call a garage door professional.
