thread Locked in her bedroom
Clickbait title.

My middle child is locked in her room, and I am out of the country. No matter how I tried to explain the mechanisms and show them what to do over face time, my wife resorted to hitting the handle with a rubber mallet.

In the end we got a neighbour in, but whilst strong he had no finesse, so I am going back to a shattered door frame.
permalink I am grateful to him, incidentally,
but were I there we would have had an easier time of it. And the door frame would not have been fucked up.
permalink Oh Manley !
