Darn it! My drawer simply would not slide in! I took it out, checked the rails, examined it but still couldn’t put it back on the rail. Finally in exasperation I stuck the drawer on the bottom of the cabinet and resigned myself to my slide-less drawer.
A month or so later our handyman was here working on another project when I asked him about my drawer. He was kind enough to look at it. Within 2 minutes he discovered a tiny screw that had come loose, tightened it and put my drawer back in it’s rightful place.
Wow, I thought, during that month I lost a lot of energy. Every time I saw the displaced drawer I would sigh and feel frustrated. In the end all I needed was someone who had more experience and a phillips screw driver.
I thought about how many times in my life I have had trouble figuring something out. In the future I plan to consult someone who knows more. I figure that the more I brainstorm or learn from others the less I “screw up.”
