Hope you kept the warranty

So this girl just ran to get on the train as the doors were closing. She made it in, but her bag got stuck in the doors. Happens every day, right?  Well never like this.

She had (has) a laptop computer in the bag. The bag itself is nothing more that a canvas type tote bag. Well, let’s just say the laptop took the brunt of it.

The bag got caught horizontally in the doors. (I feel the need for an illustration). Picture the left and right sides of the machine holding the doors open about a foot wide. That’s exactly what happened…for about a second.

All of a sudden, the laptop snapped in two. It folded in half like a piece of paper and fell to the floor in pieces. It must have been a combination of her pulling on the bag and the pressure of the doors.

There it was in two distinct pieces. On part had a little bit of the base, and three-quarters of the screen. The other half had the rest of the base and a little screen.

I would not have believed it if I didn’t see it with my own eyes.

Live from the subway, back to you in studio…

  1. After watching a group of kids hold the doors open today (through a long series of ‘bing-bongs’ and multiple annoucements from the conductor to let them go) I sure wish they slammed shut a lot harder.
