I know March is supposed to come in like a lion and go out like a lamb, but this March seems to be storming around like a drunken boy friend who's sure I'm in here fucking around on him and he's going to break the god damn door down if he has to. Now the door is attached to my home by the latch and one last hinge. It's not so much "shut" as it is propped up in a closed position. But at least it is closed, which is an improvement over how it was a few minutes ago, flapping wildly in the breeze as the dohicky* that has the thingy that slides in and out that is supposed to keep the door shut bent in such a way that it now instead holds the door open. Or did until I took the pin out. So, now the door is holding on by one hinge and the dohicky is flapping freely in the wind. I'd call the landlord, but this is an ongoing problem with the door and my repairs to it have always been more successful than his. I've never had a bent dohicky before, though, and I'm not sure what to do now. Replace the dohicky? Replace the whole door? At least replace the screws that came out of the hinges, right? *I believe this is the technical name.
