Stuck at Home

My front door is often difficult.  While I was on vacation, it gave those watching my home fits.  It acted fine until a few weeks ago when it completely fell off.  Fortunately, the back door was open so I could get in to my house.

So I went and bought new door knobs.
The instructions read "Remove old door knobs.  Replace with new."


Sure, removing the old ones were easy, since they were laying on the ground.  Replacing the new ones....not so easy.  After repeated attempts, I simply gave up and put the old ones back in and they are still there.  Coming in from the outside, they work.  However, I can't open the door from the inside.

Needless to say I'd like to meet this technical writer and punch them in the nose.
