For example, there is a built in 3-foot deep shelf in Wesley's room that is 2 feet off the ground, because the builders were about a two feet short in allowing enough head room over the stairs, so they had to bump up the floor. It happens.
Or, there is a drawer in our bathroom that uses the same path as the door. It's kind of annoying when one person is say, doing her make-up and the other one tries to open the door and it moves like it's going to open before banging into the drawer making a loud noise that would wake any sleeping children in the adjacent room.

This family member, being the ingenious person that he is undid a hanger and worked it through the small space in the door. but without being able to see how far the drawer was open, it was impossible to get the hanger in the right place.
The other family member, who had no immediate need of the restroom contemplated whether she could do without a bathroom until the next morning when maintenance could be called. Although she realized she probably could, she decided to aid the aforementioned person whose urgency was increasing.
She used a butterknife slid through the door to put pressure on the side of the drawer and work it back into the counter. since the range of motion was a matter of millimeters, it took some time but finally closed and joy was had all around. Well, nearly all around. Family member #3 couldn't have cared less about the whole thing because he just goes in his shorts.
