This happened when I was still working for my old solar company, NextEnergy Solar. Not a joke.  Let’s just say it was miller time when I got home.

“Ma’am, what’s the best way to get to your roof? We need to see where we’d put the solar panels and we don’t have a four story ladder.”

“I think this door goes out on to the roof, but I’ve never been out there.”

“OK… wait, it doesn’t seem to open… I think it’s just painted shut though, you mind if I…”

*motions of shoulder nudging it*

“Sure, go ahead.”

*Nudge* Nothing. *Harder Nudge* Nothing.

*Three more violent shoulder rammings*

“Let’s go try the window.”

*One last goodbye give-it-my-best ramming attempt.*

(It gives a about a milimeter)

“Hey! I think I can get it, it’s moving!”

*Ultra violent running shoulder ramming*

It gives more, about 3 MM now.

“Hey, that door looks like it may fall off its hinges if you keep ramming it. Do you think you will be able to close it if you get it open?”

“….. hmm… You’re right” *Disappointed look*

“OK, let’s try the window.”

WTH? Are you saying the door opened outward and you were slamming your shoulder to push it open? What would happen if you did and slipped through?
