For days the lamp outside the door to my apartment has been dark. It's a ceiling lamp and requires a ladder to get to and I have simply been too lazy to go down into the basement and bring one up. Then a neighbor rang my bell rang and wondered where we keep the light bulbs!
I gave him the key to the storage area and a few minutes later there he stood with a light bulb and the ladder. He removed the light fixture which I took and cleaned while he changed the bulb. He replaced the fixture, gave me back the keys and took the ladder down to the basement.
Everything is easier when you don't have to do it alone. I'm glad I have such great neighbors!
