I looked at our front door the other day.
It looks quite horrible. Thought I should:
- take it off hinges
- good going-over with recently repaired belt sander
But then I thought, ya know, burglars are pretty good at scoping out houses. Even for a deaf potential burglar, this gives a good clue about what to expect inside. Not favorable for his undertaking.
Problem solved: do nothing. Hella less work for me, and that warm fuzzy feeling of having done an unsolicited act of kindness for a stranger I’ll never meet.
