Do it yourself-ers

Oh man, I just have to reach out for sympathy. As you recall, we're in the middle of a kitchen update and we're doing it ourselves (except for the countertops). Nothing major, but even the little things are a lot of work, you know. So we were replacing the window trim. We got it all cut out, pretty corners, borrowed a nail gun, put it up, painted it....ahhhhh so pretty. And then I tried to open the window. Tuuuuuuuuuuug, yaaaaaank, puuuuuuuuuuull. IT! WON'T! BUDGE! Well, we nailed the window shut.
Oh MAN! So now we get the pleasure of tearing down our beautiful work and putting it back up...again. Maybe this is why some people hire professionals. Bummer.

Oh, that is AWFUL! Seriously, I would probably cry. Well, at least this time putting the trim up might go faster since you've already done it once, right?

Oh no! I am so sorry! At least you have the desire to fix it and not just settle with a story for posterity on why the window won't open! Sorry!!! Probably better go have a nice dinner out after expending all that energy!

That sounds like something I would do!
