Door Bell


By John DuLong - Posted on 05 April 2009

I know this is trivial, but today I fixed my door bell. It has been broken for over 20 years, ever since we moved in. My patient wife asked me years ago to fix it, but my motivation was not to please her. After canvassing for several politicians over the last few years I have learned that less than about two in ten homes have functional door bells in Berkley. This was frustrating for me and more than once I came home with bruised knuckles from knocking. I promised myself that I would fix my door bell so I could join this elite of home owners with functional door bells. Now I feel so much more superior to all the plebeians without operating door bells. Of course, now I will have to answer the door when I am being canvassed by others. Oh well.
