Father-in-law has brought his drill

YOUR father-in-law has arrived at your house and for some reason has brought his drill. 

Despite not being asked to bring the drill and Covid rules meaning he is not allowed in the house with or without the drill, he is standing at the door with it in his hand and appears to expect to begin drilling imminently.

Your partner said: “Oh f**k, why’s he got the drill? What did you say? What did I say?

“It can’t be pictures or mirrors or anything because they’re all on the wall already. We don’t need any more shelves. We haven’t got room for any more shelves.

“Is he planning to assemble furniture? Is he planning to disassemble furniture? Oh God, didn’t you tell him you’d been wondering if the dresser would fit upstairs?”

Your mother-in-law explained: “He’s noticed your bedroom door brushes the carpet, so he’s going to spend the next six to eight hours removing all your doors and rehanging them. Only he might not have time to rehang all of them.

“You know your father-in-law, he likes to keep busy.”
