Off the Wall

What was that?”

I don’t know. I was just heat­ing up the saucepan.”

OMIGOD! The TV is com­ing off the wall!”

What the heck…Is there an earth­quake or something?”

Nope, it just start­ed to come off.”

We called a TV Hang­ing com­pa­ny. Yes, there is such a thing. They came at the end of the day on Fri­day, and took the TV com­plete­ly off the wall, since it was hang­ing on by 1 or 2 of the 3 screws, and said they’d return to re-hang it for $200 when they could find a slot to book us. We trad­ed emails and set an appoint­ment for the 17th (ear­li­est pos­si­ble date). At least it did­n’t fall.

In the mean­time, my office, which we can­ni­bal­ized in order to get a desk stur­dy enough to sup­port the TV, looks like a tor­na­do hit it. Print­er is on the floor, papers and oth­er junk (being stored in the desk) are every­where. I’m start­ing to clean it up, but in the mean­time, the first thing you see when you enter our con­do is a huge mess. Lovely.

  1. I helped my friend JT set up the wall thing for his TV (which is very sim­i­lar to yours). I can attest to the fact that some seri­ous TV Hang­ing Skills are need­ed, trust me on that one! I am sor­ry to hear about home office mess, but hope you can get it sort­ed out soon!

  2. Pam and I won’t even try to re-hang it our­selves. This is going to require some seri­ous drilling and anchors par­tial­ly into dry­wall, par­tial­ly into concrete.
