I was making the bed at my hot blonde gfs apartment and accidentally VERY SOFTLY, Touched, not even aggressively hit, this motherFucking chandelier at the ceiling, and now its hanging on the cables. Are you fucking serious. How can a gentle touch unscrew this fucking lamp and get it fucked up like that so much

Electricity works and all is good so i guess it only needs to be screwed back up?

Who the fuck even made that shit so poor quality. Must have been the shittiest electrical engineer ive ever seen! Probably graduated from online classes too! Fuck you

What do i fucking do now. I feel so bad. It was an accident and i fucked up in someone elses house

Should i fix this myself or am i completely cooked?

Should i call electrician to fix this bullshit?

Pls how much does this fix cost. I hope motherfucking not more than 20-30$ !!!

    Tell your gf and ask her what to do.

    seriously, if you can't fix this little thing, you should reconsider your life choices.

    in addition to "writing about your poop all the time" and "bragging with an imaginary 'hot blonde gf' all the time"

    Find a part number, find the installation manual. If there is no part number then figure out how it goes back together by inspecting it. This is a mechanical issue, not an electrical one. I fix things all the time by taking them apart, seeing what it wrong, and then reassembling. I studied electrical, but I fix mechanisms all the time.

    Sorry mate, but even the chandelier got creeped out with your SOFT TOUCH 😅

    @Demolishun it looks like a poorly designed mechanical failure if you look at the ceiling it doesnt look like it was holding it very well to begin with. But what if its dangerous due to electricity since i have to put those wires back in the metal cup. Can i get cooked?

    Worst thing cross my mind that could happen which is i get electrocuted or i fuck it up beyond repair by somehow frying the entire electricity in the whole apartment so now everything needs replacement instead of just fixing this part. I have no idea how prone is this to happen

    What I would suggest is, go for a dump, get some drywall plugs, go for another dump, then put it all back together in the obvious way.

    Then probably take another dump.

    @Demolishun the lamp is fine, it just came off the ceiling. Asbestos is not so strong, you know.

    @donkulator reading ur comment makes me want to take a dump same way how u start yawning when u see someone else yawn
  • 2
    Also if the stuff the ceiling's made out of looks a bit fibrous, you need to snort a bit of it to see whether it's asbestos.

    @b2plane can you see exposed copper? There are most likely wire nuts holding the wires from the ceiling to the lamp. As long as those are not exposing copper you should be okay. If you are too afraid to work on this then call a handyman. If you have time have the handyman show how he fixes this. You can turn off breaker to make sure there is no electricity, but then you won't have light if it is dark.

    @electrineer I think its just screws, yes.

    @Demolishun Only if he had a son with the hot blonde gf to hold a flashlight while he fixes the screws with the breaker turned off ...
    Or he can use a cheap headlamp

    @donkulator im shitting rn, couldn't hold in all this new bullshit that unnecessarily had to happen
  • 3
    You'll need a drill, 2 fitting & good quality wall plugs (anchors), a screwdriver (type depends on the lamp), a ladder and about {10*(lamp_wtf_factor+1)/skill_factor} minutes of time. I'd recommend switching off the breaker when working on that.

    You might also be able to fix it the dumb way with some drilling hole repair stuff, but that will involve pressing the lamp on the ceiling for one hour and still probably not hold. Also I'm not sure you could hold your shit for one hour.

    awwww

    idk if you need an electrician. any handyman would do, or you could learn to do it yourself I guess

    looks like it was held up by one nail

    I guess just twist the chandelier in the opposite direction and rescrew the nail into the ceiling. it was probably too heavy for that drywall or whatever. guess not your problem.

    where I'm at this is something you could call a landlord for and they'll replace it for you no cost but I live in the west, so, idk standards in Serbian places.

    a dude who knows how to fix things around the house is pretty attractive to women though, FYI =]

    @jestdotty id gladly fix it myself but knowing my non existent luck i would probably fuck up something and fry the whole electricity in the building

    Dude been banging so hard lights are falling off the ceiling.

    No matter what you do to the circuit it will end at the breaker. So even if you crossed the wires it would trip the breaker. Unless the whole building is wired like shit or something.

    In 1894 a friend of mine shipped as a deck hand on the Steamer Tacoma, Capt. John Davis. They sailed from San Francisco for Hong Kong China. On arriving there he and two others went ashore and got drunk. When they returned the boat was gone.

    At that time there was famine in China.[1] Meat of any kind was from $1 to 3 Dollars a pound. So great was the suffering among the very poor that all children under 12 were sold for food in order to keep others from starving.[2] A boy or girl under 14 was not safe in the street. You could go in any shop and ask for steak -- chops -- or stew meat. Part of the naked body of a boy or girl would be brought out and just what you wanted cut from it. A boy or girls behind which is the sweetest part of the body and sold as veal cutlet brought the highest price.

    John staid there so long he acquired a taste for human flesh. On his return to N.Y. he stole two boys one 7 one 11. Took them to his home stripped them naked tied them in a closet. Then burned everything they had on. Several times every day and night he spanked them -- tortured them -- to make their meat good and tender.
  • -1
    First he killed the 11 year old boy, because he had the fattest ass and of course the most meat on it. Every part of his body was Cooked and eaten except the head -- bones and guts. He was Roasted in the oven (all of his ass), boiled, broiled, fried and stewed. The little boy was next, went the same way. At that time, I was living at 409 E 100 st., near -- right side. He told me so often how good Human flesh was I made up my mind to taste it.

    Those lamps are designed to be attached to an electrical junction box, not drywall.

    Even if they were designed to be attached to drywall, you need drywall anchors, not just screw it directly in.

    Drywall anchors likely can't be used because there IS an electrical junction box behind the drywall.

    Cut the power at the breaker panel. Verify with a current detection tool that you've actually Cut the power. Cut the dry wall using a box cutter to expose the receptical behind it. If there is no receptical, you'll install one. They screw into wood joists, do if the joists aren't in the same position, you'll need to build a box in the ceiling you support it, and move the wiring into the receptical (ground the receptical as well)

    Once it's up and running, you'll notice the long screws will reach the mounting holes and pinch the outer lamp trim to the drywall.

    have her dwarves fix it and be done with it

    @kobenz I swear I have seen that vid somewhere...

    @lungdart I don't think this is a drywall underceiling, those are uncommon and it doesn't fit the vibes from the picture. I would guess that most likely it is concrete.

    I believe the whole issue is that the holes were drilled badly (too loose) and/or bad plugs/anchors used which kinda held but not very well.

    @saucyatom receptacles should still be exposed, regardless of material.

    This guy, always rubbing his "hot blonde gf" against our faces. It came loose and fell because it was installed incorrectly. You see those screws and ceiling? It's not meant to carry the weight. Fork up the money to have it professionally done. If you are lucky, it's a hot brunette lady and you have your fantasy go one step further.

    @lungdart I'm not sure I follow. Most modern ceiling lamps are meant to be fixed directly on the wires. Wiring them can sometimes involve a few WTFs...

    @lungdart you're asking too much from a guy who has a love-hate relationship with nextjs.

    @fruitfcker it is hard to relate to people who never took stuff apart when they were kids. I took tons of stuff apart to see how it was built. I was always tinkering with electronics. I really enjoyed reverse engineering circuits. I also like fixing mechanical things. I think if you were not encouraged to do this as a kid then it becomes a scary proposition.

    @b2plane One other thing is that you shouldn't move around the lamp too much while it's hanging there like this (and also not leave it like this), because these wires and the connectors are not meant to hold weight and might get loose or break. Worst case you have the metal parts of the lamp functioning as a deadly shock stick or melt the connector.

    If you don't really need it, it might be a good idea to keep it off just to be safe. And if it suddenly doesn't work anymore (potential wire disconnect/breakage) - don't touch it and switch off the breaker, otherwise you're testing your luck.

    @lungdart Typical lamp mounting hereabouts looks like this. (Note that this lamp has 0 WTF, you can see on his face.)

    Upon searching for it online I did find a junction box inside the ceiling, so I guess I know what you mean now. I have never seen that IRL, there's always just the cables coming out.

    I suppose how it's done is location dependent.

    @Demolishun i have a bachelor's degree in computer science and electrical engineering but i don't know shit about electrical engineering!

    @b2plane you were scammed and the degree was just about computer science

    @donkulator yeah, this should definitely help )))

    it's working- the light is bright. once it stops working- then worry about it. keep your nerves calm

    Bro, switch the main osigurač off, so no electricity will kill you when you put the cables back.

    Don't forget to turn it on later!
