when crisis arrives it's often in svelte boxes. stealthy. well packed. air tight. each misdirection framed with instruction, paired with pictures, numbered, itemized. it makes the process seem so logical. fasteners and spacers are codified, in sealed plastic sleeves. warnings against leaving children unattended around sharp pieces are printed on the paper instructions and the storage bag. once built, there are also cautions against letting children climb up, or on, the item. unless it is a bed, then don't climb the headboard and definitely don't play under it. there's safety in redundancy. outcome assured, sore back notwithstanding. missing pieces? there's a 1-800 for that. need help building? check the website, forward slash, helpdesk. lay out the pieces, as numbered. grab a Robertson screwdriver. or is it a Phillips? grab the one with the cross, not the square. the flat head, the simplest tool, is never needed. guaranteed that the tip will skip at least three times, easily removing skin from bone. storage solutions instead of problem solving.
