SHORT STORY ABOUT BOARDING UP A SHOP AFTER A BREAK IN OVER CHRISTMAS

My name is Eric and I am the assistant manager of a small local shop. This Christmas was my first time being in charge of the shop with my manager and the owner being out of reach (they both went away for Christmas vacations).

Of course, I get a call from our security company in the middle of the night on Christmas Eve that the shop had been broken into. I didn’t know what to do, I had no one to call and get advice from. I arrived at the shop shortly after one in the morning, and I had left voice mails on both of my boss’s phones.

Once I got to the shop I really didn’t know what to do. The police came and helped me. One of my colleagues answered my panicked phone calls and came to help me, bringing plywood with her from her dad. Together we put up plastic and plywood to board up the windows in the middle of the night.

My colleague knew how to bored up a window and walked me through it. What I learned is that installation is a two-person job, especially with large panels. If you don’t know how to bored up a window, here is what we did:

First we marked the location of the studs that were closest to each side of and underneath the window. We then cut each panel so that it would extend about one inch beyond the framing on each side of the window. We then held the plywood up against the opening of the window and drilled pilot holes into it and into the framing every 16 inches. We then screwed in all of the holes.

Boxing Day morning my manager called me back and gave me the number of our go –to glazier. They came and took care of everything for me. By the time my bosses came home, you would have never been able to tell that we were broken into.

This Christmas was definitely a learning experience for me, but I now feel prepared for if I should ever deal with a broken window or even a break in again in the future.

It is unbelievable how efficient the glaziers were once I called them, and they even commended me for the way we boarded up the windows.
