Desperate House Wife

She told me she had set her heart on it......It was an American thumb-latch type front door handle, but the point was it was not bought in my store 'Handle Supplies' at Cobh Cross, Industrial Estate across form the new Ballyseedy Home and Garden store outside Carrigtwohill.
I had to say I was reluctant to adjust handles bought elsewhere while I needed customers to buy my premium handles and have any adjustments made before they leave my store at no extra cost.
So anyway, this lady told me she was reliably informed by her joiner that I was the only man that could adjust her new door handle to fit her new front door which is 25 mm wider then the standard width for this type front door handlle and lock.

Well I just did it. I extended the tail bar on the rim-lock which is a type not used in Europe. Also I checked that the split spindle would reach the required length. Finally I provided longer new screws and a new fixing method.

So one less desperate house wife
Name and address of this lady with the publisher !!!
