POST ON BN:
1.) Sarah O. August 18, 2016 at 11:12 am
So i decided to visit my fiance in his house. I was brought up with the mentality that you don’t visit a man’s house, especially your boyfriend, for anything can happen. He has been asking me to his place for a long time now, said he has something to show me. One faithful Sunday evening, I decided to go see what he wanted to show me. Ii took 1 hour, 24 minutes to do my makeup, cause i wanted to look good. I go there and my greatest dismay and disappointment, the first thing that spoiled the day was his door. Oh goodness! nna i haven’t seen anything like this, it doesnt even qualify to be called a door. The hinges was hanging, the knob had eaten up, if you pull it with force, it is off, and a rope was tied to it up pull it along, the base of the door had a hole large enough for a rabbit to easily pass through. in fact, i almost turned back, then my fiance opened up the door along with a cry like an overloaded old lorry. He had a grin on his face. I now asked him, babe, what did u want me to see all this while, i was already disappointed and angry, as if he knew about my reaction to the door of his house. He said i can explain……I was… i cut him short, so this is how you want to embarrass ,me right. haba. Please i have to leave now, i spangled out of the compound. He just laughed, I refused to pick up his calls, i had the thought of calling it off, can’t be with a man with such a door. Three weeks later, nothing from both of us, i decided to just go see him and say goodbye, one getting there, i couldn’t recognized his house again, It can be, a brand new door, and not just that, from Emilinks, no way! I jumped and hugged him like never before, he said, honey, that was a test, i installed it the next day you left, look, its Emilinks door. Solid and robust. Can we go in, and i hurriedly say yes! yes, And so Emilinks doors save me from leaving my love, my man,Thanks Emilinks. #MyDoorStory #Emilinks – Day 11

A few years back, I was a housewife, doing chores, washing the dishes, etc. I loved buying household appliances…I also used to be a huge procrastinator. Our front door had been giving us issues for quite a while and my husband had told me countlessly to have it either fixed or changed…i always ended that particular topic of discussion with “Oh sure darling, right away”….. As annoying as it may sound right now, i didn’t change the door like he instructed.
One morning, not more than 10 minutes after seeing my husband off, I was doing housework as usual, suddenly, there was a knock on the door..i wasn’t expecting anybody so i didn’t bother to answer the door. I continued what i was doing and guess what happened!! Without much struggle, the visitor forcefully opened the door!! I was shocked ..i mean the door was locked (that’s by the way tho). Next thing i heard was “Madam, wey oga?” I was shivering, i cldnt speak…i was quietly praying for the neighbours to hear his voice but our compound is very large and it was a time when they had gone about their daily businesses…He pulled out a pen knife( i know a pen knife is small but that thing scared me like a gun would), led me upstairs, took my husband’s Laptop, his shoes, a big file containing some documents and 150,000 cash he gave me for the door two weeks ago which i kept safely in the wardrobe..I cld only watch helplessly as this man took everything, i wasn’t crying because of what he took, i was crying because all these wldnt have happened had it been i changed the door.
When he was done, he led me downstairs and helped himself out. Long story short, my husband and i didn’t speak to each other for 1 whole week! I learned a great lesson: If only we had a strong door, we wldnt hv been robbed. Today, we are proud owners of an Emilinks brand of doors, i mean all the doors in my house are from #Emilinks doors.
Their doors will make robbers pee on themselves just cos they cldnt gain entrance into your home. Choose Emilinks today no matter how expensive their brand may be. It’ll be worth all your penny. #Emilinks #Mydoorstory #Day11
3.) Ottih Chidalu Jennifer: #emilinks #bellanaija#day11 #
It was my first day at work as the new receptionist. I have just been recently employed at a five star hotel. Being the first day I was very eager to go to work that I woke up as early as 4am to prepare for work. I decided to wear my best dress, a red flowered midi dress I usually keep for special occasions. On getting to the hotel, I worked majestically in a catwalk style feeling like Oluchi Onweagba in Victoria secret runway. As I walked past the Hotel staff room door, instantly I felt a force drawing me back as I heard the sound of my red dress tearing from the waist down to my knee. Oh God! I turned around and saw a huge nail on the door still holding some piece of my dress. That door handle was completely damaged with the nail being the only thing left in its place. I was very devastated. I cried my eyes out and wondered what a substandard door like this would be doing in a five star hotel. t was one of the worker who lived close to the hotel that lent me her dress. If only they had #Emilinks door installed, this wouldn’t have happened to me..
4.) Iyantan John Holuwaseun – This is a big burden to me. Who will save me from this hardship and insecurity? This bad door needs to be replaced its has caused me so much lost and inconvenience. #MyDoorStory #

That was how I burnt my legs with the hot water that I was supposed to use in preparing tea for breakfast. That faithful morning, I mistakenly dashed my leg against a wood that pulled out from door and the hot water poured over my leg. “Holy Goodness” I Screamed holding my left leg. Out of anger, I kicked my door with my right leg And developed a worst injury.
“Wetin happen” Mr. Titus asked running into my room.
“Nail don chook me eh… Wetin carry me come here this morning for goodness sake”. Mr Titus screamed falling to the ground with blood gushing out from his leg. He managed to limp out of my room immediately. I couldn’t help but burst into laughter.
My laughter was cut short the moment I realised that my door had completely fallen off.
9.) @omolola_mbgt – #Day11 #Mydoorstory#Emilinks …. Like every other summer holiday my cousins came to stay at our place days passed the holiday was going smoothly until one fateful afternoon I had this feeling that something bad was going to happen immediately I went to lock the door so that the kids wunt go out only to find out that the handle of the door was faulty, I just had to make due with the padlocks not up to 30mins I had done that all we heard was a loud bang immediately I knew they Were robber they were pushing the door asking me to open it if nt they would hurt me I was so scared I could see the bolts shaking in other not to make them more angry I opened the door for them I was pushed to the ground a lot of things were stolen from the house but thankful no one was hurt…but all this happened because we didn’t have a strong door if not I won’t have opened the door myself #EmlinksThe incident got me very scared till now,cos anything can happen at anytime…..But,later on a friend introduced #Emlinks door to my Dad, and since then nothing of such has happened.Go for a strong door like emlinks cos it will help shield you from perpetrators and evil eye in the society and a good door like #Emlinks door can lead to a good story, opportunity and a glimpse in another wonderful life and I strongly believe behinde an emlinks door there is a good story to be told#mydoorstory.#Emlinks ….day 11@bellanaijaonline
10.) @asajeffery – You might be wondering why I am in an awkward position in front of some ladies’ room. Weird right, you’re right. Well, I’m trying to depict a scenario that occurred a couple of weeks back.
It all happened so fast in the female’s hostel in my school. It was 6 a.m. in the morning and the ladies were busy with their normal routine, preparing for classes, dressing up and making up. A Potter was also busy, not with him expected duties though. He was busy spying on the ladies through the gap on the door.
A lady from another room who was going to jog caught him and raised alarm. Upon hearing this, ladies form other rooms ran outside, each with an object to beat the Potter up. Having a black eye was the least of his worries because he was lucky not to have both eyes lost to the blows of enraged girls, it also cost him his job.
Had it been that the school authority used #Emilinks doors, the privacy of these poor ladies would have been secured and the Potter wouldn’t have had the opportunity to act on his ill intention, thus he would still have his job. Thanks for reading #mydoorstory
Oh, just to clear the air. The ladies are on holiday, so there are nobody in the room I’m peeping into. I’m not a pervert oooooo
