“One particularly unforgettable time was at University. Having been in halls for the first year, four friends and I moved into a house for our second. The housemate who won the largest room arrived several days after the rest of us - so that gave us plenty of time to swap or move into his room all the furniture we didn't want. However, it was a small and narrow house. Moving a wardrobe downstairs from my room to his, it got stuck halfway down the staircase. Two of us were stuck above it - two stuck below it. The lower pair had to go for help to borrow tools to disassemble the wardrobe, get it down the stairs, then put it back together again. I don't think he even noticed the large, slightly wonky wardrobe in his room.”
