I admit it. After living for an eternity with a dirty, curling-at-the-edges garbage chute door sign, I did some unauthorized maintenance work today.
The custodial staff in my building are overworked, and although residents aren’t encouraged to do professional work around the property the staff often appreciates these small acts of assistance.
Not that I’m going to do the same on every floor. The neighbors have computers and printers. Let them tear out their hair learning how to change the format from Portrait to Landscape. It’ll be educational for them, as it was for me. Why should I be the only one to suffer?
Here are the Before and After photos. Maybe now I can take out the trash without having a Felix Ungar Moment. The Before pic is out of focus, but that’s influenced by advertising. You’ve seen dubious adverts for products that are supposed to trim waistlines, enlarge breasts and remove age spots. The Before photos seldom look right.
Oh, and screw the myth of invisible tape.
