Venetian Blind Snafu

(Bowling Green, OH) In yesterday's warm early spring sunshine my university office became insufferably hot, and I needed to open the blinds and the window to let in some fresh air. The building in which I work is still programmed for winter weather, and of course there is nothing better than a blast of spring air to clear the mind.

As I prepared to leave, the blinds would not close, and it took me 10 minutes to figure out why. It turns out that a small piece of string became trapped in the window as I closed it, and no matter how hard I tugged, the blinds were not going to move.

I certainly did not find that a PhD was of much use in this snafu.
