Did you ever see that episode of Friends where they find a switch and don't know what it is for? They nearly destroy the wall to find out and still don't know. I have a mystery that is the opposite, although...
If you look at the photo of the front of the house, you can see a high light on the left. And since I moved in, I never used that light. I would have liked to, but the light switch wasn't working at all. Same for the other outside light. Although that would work. Occasionally.
|Was it wrong to assume that both those switches control both outside lights?|
Then last week, the light was on. I didn't even notice immediately, not until I went to bed and wondered where the light came from. And for a whole week, I wondered how to turn it off. Because the light switch that was there, wasn't working.
Well, yesterday I finally found out. The switch in the hallway I always thought belonged to the (non-existent) light in the hallway was not for the light in the hallway. It was for the outside light.
The house I live in is a weird house. I have more storage space than I know what to do with. The floor slopes. The main heater in the house faces the staircase and doesn't do too much good in the living room. I can touch every single ceiling without standing on tippy-toe. And light switches are found all over.
|It's big. But it is not even near the other switches!|
PS: I didn't turn the light on. When the man-in-the-know was here, he brought wife (woman-in-the-know) and children with him. One of the small people must have done it.
