The Story of the Mengel Cabinet Knobs

The electricity and water were shut off ages ago and they'd been draining the hot water heater for a good 30 minutes, so everyone was a little surprised when the overhead pipes poured down the last of the house's reserves.
"Hey, you wanna take a shower?"
I was the only female and glad I hadn't ditched my sweatshirt around the third time they made the joke.
The knobs came off the Mengel cabinet quite quickly, but for whatever reason I decided I wanted the hinges, too. Five screws per hinge, four hinges, and no real hurry unless the water never stopped, in which case the puddle might make it to my part of the floor.
