Brooms Are Harder Than They Look


One day last month while I was sweeping in my bathroom, I dropped the broom by accident, and the broom handle hit the shower door. It hit the door so hard that it broke it. I didn’t think a broom handle would be strong enough to do that, especially since it didn’t look like the broom handle hit the door that hard. There was no way around it. I had to call a local shower doors company to put in a new glass door for my shower.

Sometimes I will try to fix things around the house on my own, but I didn’t feel confident enough in my skills that I could put in a glass shower door without something going wrong in the process. I’ve had a few repair attempts go wrong when I’ve tried to do things like plumbing repairs that were a bit out of my league. Sometimes it’s just better to rely on a professional to do the job instead of taking the risk and making things worse for yourself. Although there’s probably not much more that can go wrong from trying to put in a new shower door, aside from possibly injuring myself if I break the new glass door.

I found a pretty good company to install the new glass door for a reasonable price. They were timely and efficient workers and were able to have the new door installed in the same day that they came. The new door they put in place was said to be stronger than the older one, so something as simple as the drop of a broom handle wouldn’t cause it to easily crack. Still, I’ll be a little bit more careful in the future when I try to do some sweeping in my bathroom, or maybe switch to a lighter broom.
