There really is no place for short chubby fingers.
We’ve had a wonderful sunny day here with very little wind as well. I got the chance to experience it some when I walked to and from the neighbor factory where I worked for a few hours today. It was the kind of day when it felt like the best thing to do was just to jump in the car and drive away but I couldn’t for two reasons.
The first reason was because too many hadn’t come to work today so they really needed another painter and the second reason was that I had to replace the two lights above the license plate on the tailgate. I knew both of them had broken already yesterday so the first thing I did when I came home was to bring all screwdrivers I have, the two tiny lightbulbs were already waiting in the car.
I had to have the flashlight in my mouth while I kept the tailgate in a hight where I easily could work. Naturally the screws were of a kind which I didn’t have a screwdriver for. So I talked with the handyman at work, he who fixes all problems we have with almost everything at work and he had the right tool. So as soon as I came back to work I started changing those lightbulbs.
The first thing I do is to drop the tiny screw so it landed between the license plate and the tailgate. I could feel that it would be easy to pick up so I continued with the other one. It is amazing how hard those tiny bulbs sit and there’s really no space for short and chubby fingers 🙂 I did get it out after a while and when I was about to pick up the screw that I dropped I managed to push it down behind the license plate.
The plate is made of plastic but I didn’t dare pulling too hard to get the screw out, so I gave up after a few minutes and called our handyman and asked how I would remove the plate since there were no visible screws to remove. He really tried to explain to me but in the end he had to come out and help me 🙂 🙂 Turns out those plastic plates can take a lot before they break and to be honest, it was stupidly easy to remove it 🙂
So now I drive legally again, well almost because another lightbulb broke so now I need to go to the petrol station on my way home tomorrow and get a new one 🙂 It is time for something to eat and hot cocoa, the night is chilly!
Have a great day!
