Ma'am, I've never seen that happen...
A little background story. Mr. Yoy and I are not "do-ers." Especially now that we have the Yoys. I know this is incredibly shocking, especially because we are Jewish.
We have on payroll a lawn guy (even though our lawn is like .001 acres), a cleaning lady, an exterminator, an electrician, a painter, and a plumber.
We also have a great guy that installed all of the cabinet locks, baby gates, blind cleats, wall anchors, and every other baby proofing item you can think of. It was pricey, but well worth the money. If anything breaks, he comes right out to fix it at no additional charge to us. It's been almost two years since he installed everything and we've had him out a few times to undo some damage.
Today it was the safety gate at the top of the stairs. After a few years of Big E shaking it like a gorilla at the zoo, he finally pulled the whole dang thing out of the wall.
Mr. Fix-it came over this afternoon and I led him up to the gate. He was astounded at the sight of the pathetic gate hanging onto the wall by a screw and that's when he said the famous line -
Ma'am, I've never seen that happen!
I responded with You've never had a Big E!
Of course, Big E was there to "manage" the project.
FIX THE GATE? FIX MY GATE! I NOT A BAD BOY!
I offered up a bribe to get Big E back downstairs and let the nice man work in peace.
Anyway, all is fixed. He really rigged it up, so hopefully things will forever stay put.
