So, last Sunday the lamp on one of our projectors went out during the service.  Not gonna lie.  i knew it was going out.  Should have gotten a replacement for it earlier.  But, I didn’t.  So we had no back up for this past week.

So I ordered one online, 2 day shipping.  They were back ordered though.  So the next day I ordered another.  Different company.  Thought it was all good.  2 day shipping again.  On Friday, wondering why I didn’t have it yet, I checked the status.  It hadn’t shipped yet.

At first i was gettin hot, then I looked at the site again.  My fault.  I missed the spot where this lamp says typically ships in 6-8 days.  Shoot!

So I had to get creative to make it work.  So, spare projector from the youth plus gaff tape plus a 14 foot ladder =


Yep.  I gaff taped another projector securely to the hanging one.  Wasn’t quite a large enough image for the screen, but better than nothing.  Not ideal, not long-term, but it worked!  And the new lamp just showed up in my office!

So when was the last time you had to get a little creative to solve a problem?
