ESL 243: Jimmy Fixes His Door


Download


Jimmy lives on the second floor of a six-unit apartment building. His front door has two locks -- a security deadbolt, and a regular door handle lock. The front door also has a peephole -- a tiny piece of glass through which Jimmy can look out his door at about eye-level to "preview" who is knocking on his door or ringing his doorbell.

The peephole is a security device, but Jimmy never uses it. When someone knocks, he just opens the door. First of all, he lives in a safe neighborhood, so security is not really a problem. Second, people rarely knock on Jimmy's door, so he is always eager to greet a visitor.

Before you can knock on the front door, you have to push the button on the black screen door to open the screen door. The screen door has an inside lock on it, but the lock has not worked since the screen door was installed more than two years ago. This has bothered Jimmy from day one. Today, Jimmy finally decided to do something about the lock on the screen door. It was a nice, warm sunny day. Jimmy was in his shorts -- no flip-flops, no shirt.

The lock was part of the screen door pushbutton handle. The outside and inside handles were held together with just two screws. Jimmy got a flathead screwdriver and loosened both screws. He kept adjusting the screws, and pushing on the outside button. Eventually he adjusted the screws enough to where the lever stayed in the locked position when he pushed on the outside button. Finally, he had made the right adjustment.

But now he needed to put a spacer on the inside handle to maintain that adjustment. He found a piece of plastic that was just the right thickness. He inserted the plastic between the handle and the doorframe itself, and then he tightened the two screws. Bingo! It worked perfectly. He could push on the outside button with all his might, and the lever would remain locked. Jimmy grinned. The screen door finally worked properly!

Jimmy had fixed a two-year-old problem in less than an hour. He was ecstatic. He returned the screwdriver to the toolbox, thinking "I'm a genius."

Jimmy sửa cửa của anh ta

Jimmy sống ở tầng hai của một căn hộ chung cư sáu hộ. Cửa trước của anh có hai khoá -- một khoá an ninh chết, và một khoá cửa bằng tay thông thường. Cửa trước có một cái lổ -- một miếng kính nhỏ qua đó Jimmy có thể nhìn qua cửa ở tầm mắt để "xem trước" ai đang gõ cửa hay nhấn chuông.

Cái lổ nhỏ là một công cụ an ninh, nhưng Jimmy không bao giờ sùng nó. Khi có ai gõ cửa, anh chỉ mở cửa. Đầu tiên là anh sống chổ an toàn, nên an ninh không thật sự là vấn đề. Thứ hai, người ta ít gõ cửa Jimmy, nên anh ta luôn mong chào đón khách đến.

Trước khi gõ cửa, ban phải nhấn nút trên cửa lưới màu đen để mở cửa lưới. Cửa lưới có một cái khoá, nhưng không hoạt động từ khi cửa lưới được lắp đặt hai năm trước đây. Điều này quấy rầy Jimmy ngày một. Hôm nay, Jimmy cuối cùng quyết định làm gì đó về cái khoá trên cửa lưới. Đó là một ngày dễ chịu, ấm áp đầy nắng. Jimmy bận quần sọt -- không mang dép, không áo.

Cái khoá là một phần của cửa lưới có nút nhấn bằng tay. Ngoài và trong được nối với nhau bằng hai con ốc. Jimmy lấy cái vít dẹp và tháo hai ốc. Anh điều chỉnh ốc và nhấn nút bên ngoài. Dần dần anh điều chỉnh được ốc vừa đủ ở mức đòn bẩy của nằm giữa khoá ở vị trí khi anh nhấn nút bên ngoài. Cuối cùng, anh đã chỉnh được.

Nhưng giờ anh cần để một khoảng trống giữa cái cần để giữ sự điều chỉnh này. Anh tìm thấy một miếng nhựa vừa độ dầy. Anh nhét miếng nhựa giữa cần và khung cửa, và siết chặt hai ốc. Trúng rồi! Nó hoạt động hoàn hảo. Anh có thể nhấn trên nút bên ngoài với hết sức có thể, và đòn bẩy vẫn khoá. Jimmy nhe răng cười. Cái cửa lưới cuối cùng đã làm việc tốt.

Jimmy đã sửa một vấn đề hai năm trong dưới một giờ. Anh phấn khởi. Anh cất cái vít vào thùng đồ nghề, nghĩ rằng "Tôi là thiên tài."

-----------------------------------------------------------------
Jimmy ở trên tầng hai của một khu chung cư có sáu-căn hộ. Cửa chính nhà anh có hai ổ khoá -- một cái khoá chốt an toàn và một cái khoá tay nắm cửa bình thường. Cánh cửa chính cũng có một cái lỗ nhìn trộm -- một miếng thuỷ tinh bé tý mà qua đó Jimmy có thể nhìn ra ngoài cửa trong khoảng bằng tầm mắt để "xem trước" ai đang gõ cửa hoặc nhấn chuông nhà anh.

Cái lỗ nhỏ ở cửa để nhìn qua là một thiết bị an ninh, nhưng Jimmy không bao giờ dùng đến nó. Khi có một người nào đó gõ cửa, anh chỉ việc mở cửa thôi. Trước hết, anh sống ở khu dân cư an toàn, vì vậy an ninh thật sự không là vấn đề gì cả. Thứ hai, mọi người hiếm khi gõ cửa nhà anh, vì thế anh luôn luôn nhiệt tình chào đón khách đến chơi.

Trước khi bạn có thể gõ lên cửa chính, bạn phải nhấn vào cái nút trên cửa lưới màu đen để mở cửa lưới. Cửa lưới có một ổ khoá ở phía bên trong, nhưng cái khoá này không hoạt động kể tứ lúc nó được lắp đặt hơn hai năm trước đây. Điều này đã làm cho Jimmy bực mình ngay từ ngày đầu tiên. Hôm nay, cuối cùng thì Jimmy quyết định phải làm việc gì đó với ổ khoá trên cánh cửa lưới. Đó là một ngày đẹp trời, đầy nắng ấm. Jimmy mặc quần sóoc -- không dép tông, không áo sơ-mi.

Cái ổ khoá là một phần của nút nhấn tay nắm cửa lưới. Tay nắm phía trong và phía ngoài được giữ lại với nhau với chỉ hai con ốc. Jimmy lấy cái tuốc-nơ-vít đầu dẹt và nới hai con ốc ra. Anh tiếp tục chỉnh lại mấy con ốc, và nhấn lên cái nút ở phía ngoài. Cuối cùng anh điều chỉnh mấy con ốc vừa đủ ở chỗ đòn bẩy đỡ vị trí khoá lại lúc anh nhấn vào cái nút phía bên ngoài. Sau cùng, anh đã thực hiện việc điều chỉnh phù hợp.

Nhưng bây giờ anh cần đặt một miếng chêm trên tay nắm cửa phía trong để duy trì sự điều chỉnh đó. Anh tìm ra được một miếng nhựa có bề dày vừa đúng. Anh chèn miếng nhựa vào giữa tay nắm và khung cửa, và tiếp đó anh siết chặt hai con ốc. Chính xác! Nó hoạt động thật tốt. Anh có thể nhấn hết sức mình vào cái nút ở phía ngoài, và cái đòn bẩy vẫn tiếp tục bị khoá. Jimmy cười toe toét. Cánh cửa lưới cuối cùng đã hoạt động đâu ra đó!

Jimmy đã thu xếp một vấn đề tồn tại trong hai năm chỉ trong chưa đầy một tiếng đồng hồ. Anh rất phấn chấn. Anh đặt chiếc tuốc-nơ -vít vào trở lại thùng dụng cụ, và suy nghĩ "Mình là một thiên tài mà."
