I hate that $#%^ garage door

Originally there weren't garages here but instead four carports with apartment #4 above them. Vertical rolling metal doors were added later which lift by a handle and helped along cables on the sides. I don't know if it's karma getting me but every once in a while the cable on one side comes off it's track and snarls on the bar connecting the two sides at the top. I can't fully close it or open it in that state so I have to open it as much as I can, unhook the cable, unsnarl the cable and rewrap it and hook it back on to the door. It happened again tonight and fixing it earned me a three inch scratch on my right arm. Grrr!
