You know, it’s really frustrating when you take the doors of your refrigerator off in order to change the way the door opens from left-to-right to right-to-left and discover that the last part exposed, the base mounting pin, is riveted in place on the carrying plate rather than removable and reconfigurable, like everything else. Which you had just removed, and now must put right back in place.

Also, someone somewhere must have explored the mystic rules or lack thereof which govern or torment the placement of light switches.

In attempting to fathom the plan, or lack thereof, behind the electrical ‘system’ installed in the new place, I begin to glimpse what I think must be the handiwork of the Old Ones.
