Unlucky with doors

    First my bedroom door wouldn't shut so i gave it a gentle kick and put my foot through the skin.
    Then my kitchen door wouldn't open so i shoulder nudged it, that sent the latch flying,
    So now i only have an entry door and second bedroom door left that works.

    The skin of the bedroom door cracked so easy it may well have the strength of 1mm thick asbestos, the kitchen door latch would be no bother to a 10st weakling.

    Sorry to hear about your papier mache flat, Woolie. All three external doors here have been upgraded to wood-core steel, with deadbolts. The two internal doors are cheap hollow-core luan, and wouldn't stand up to my ~50# dog.

    When you visit, allow me to open and close all doors for you.
    Seriously though, it is a shame as to the quality of housing materials these days.

    micky mouse doors.

    Doors certainly do cause problems.

    Suppose you're on a game show, and you're given the choice of three doors: Behind one door is a car; behind the others, goats. You pick a door, say No. 1, and the host, who knows what's behind the doors and wants to make sure viewers will endure the commercials to see what happens, opens another door, say No. 3, which has a goat. He then says to you, "Do you want to pick door No. 2?" Is it to your advantage to switch your choice?

    Do you have a landlord that will take care of it I hope? I got myself into a cheap place and quickly found that all the landlord was willing to do for me was take my money.

    The landlord should fix it, if they don't i will threaten to fit solid oak doors with barn door hinges.
