Mom Asks Internet To Help Her Open China Hutch Without Breaking Fallen Dishes


Astay-at-home mom in Hsinchu, Taiwan, was shocked and dismayed at the sight greeting her when she came home one day. But it wasn’t the aftermath of some disaster.

In fact, it was just the opposite: it was a disaster just waiting to happen.

Somehow (no one is quite sure how), the china dishes in her cabinet had tumbled over, and were now trapped in a precarious position between the shelf and the glass door — meaning that if she were to open the door, the dishes would all come spilling out to shatter on the floor.

She called up her friend, Tseng Shao-Tsen, to come help her with the dilemma, but he was as lost as the owner of the dishes as to what to do.

So Tseng did what anyone with a dilemma in 2016 would do: He took a picture and put it online.

The suggestions came pouring in and some of them were very elaborate — if not exactly practical.

Several people thought of lying the whole cupboard on the floor to make the dishes slide back into place, but others pointed out that the cupboard might be attached to the wall.

Another user’s idea involved glass cutters and a tub of water that would safely catch the falling dishes, which seems far too complicated and messy.

It seemed all the plans involved multiple steps and multiple people, as well as a lot of complicated maneuvers.
