Embarrassing Door Replacement


I accidentally broke the sliding glass doors in my back room yesterday… by dancing and falling over.

This is such an embarrassing story. I’ve always been clumsy but I’ve never broken multiple doors before. This is a whole new level of clumsiness that I feel like no human should have. It’s getting to the point where I could actually be a danger to myself and others. You should have seen how much glass was on the floor when I smashed through the door…

This morning I had to call someone to come and do a sliding doors installation to replace the one that I had broken. I told them it was pretty urgent because the door was broken and it was letting in a lot of cold air. I told the person that I had covered the gaping hole in the door with newspaper and that it wasn’t going to last much longer. I was very glad when the person on the other end of the phone didn’t ask me how it had broken. This was definitely a don’t ask, don’t tell situation. 

I wonder if he’s ever installed new sliding doors in anyone else’s house because they broke them by falling into them like I did. Maybe it’s more likely that people break things like windows rather than doors. Maybe someone was dancing too hard to a song just like I was and then found themselves in a situation where they needed a timber window replacement. Melbourne infrastructure isn’t all that good, so I’m sure that I can’t be the only one to have ever done this… well I hope.

I’m not going to tell anyone how my sliding doors broke. I haven’t even told anyone that anything’s wrong with them yet. Hopefully I can get the installation done quickly before anyone notices. God, being an adult is tough. I hope I get better at being an adult soon.
