1) Lyop – #Emilinks #MyDoorStory #Day14
My hubby had just gotten a promotion from work. We waited for that promotion for five years and so it was a reason to celebrate. When we decided to have a party to celebrate, his colleagues insisted that the party should hold in our house. We obliged after a long time.
You see, why we hesitated at first was because our toilet door has always been bad. We were always calling the carpenter. Sometimes he came three times in two weeks just to check our really bad door. The evening before the party, the carpenter was in our house for more than six hours, trying to make sure the door would not embarrass us.
When the party started, I got a lot of compliments for cooking an incredible meal for my husband’s colleagues. I was on top of the world!
Soon after, my husband’s boss stood up and asked for our toilet, I took him to the toilet.
We did not see him come out. 20 minutes… 30 minutes… 35 minutes… my husband went to check him. The door knob had fallen while his boss was trying to open the door to get out and there was no way he could come out without releasing the latch. We were helpless; the man was already frustrated, I heard that in his voice. Soon, more of hubby’s colleagues gathered around the toilet, they were trying to get him out. We tried to release the latch with a knife, it was not working, we called the carpenter and, he promised to join us in two hours. Hubby’s colleagues had to break down the door when the old man got more frustrated. They had to save their jobs.
After the incident, one of hubby’s colleague called us aside, she whispered, “go and buy #Emilinks, it is affordable and it is designed for easy use, I swear, try it, if it fails you, I will refund you.” That sounded like a customer with trust for the brand, so we got #Emilinks and now we have no problem. Carpenter no dey chop our money anyhow, again.
To #Emilinks customer comfort is first and we trust #Emilinks.
2) Taiwo – I was job hunting. Today would make it the fourth time (or so I remember) I had gone for an interview that month and I was determined to ace it. I had just two good shirts then and, since power supply was epileptic, I had contracted the washing and ironing of one of them to a local dry cleaner. I would don it for the interview.
Morning came and I was all set for the interview. I rushed through breakfast and moved to hurriedly leave the house; I was getting late. I had hardly stepped out of the house when I heard the sound of a rip. I almost lost my heart, fighting hard to tell myself it wasn’t what I thought it was. I turned my head slowly in the direction the sound had come from.
There, at the side of my shirt, was a wide rip, gaping wide at me beside the culprit, my door, as if telling me, “today’s not your day”. And it wasn’t! I spent a lot of time trying to get the other shirt ready. I got very late to the place of interview and consequently lost the opportunity. I was indignant at myself and at the door. I had been told many times to change it, but I didn’t think it was a big deal. I made up my mind there and then that if I would get a door, it would be a very good one or none at all. I asked around and eventually got an Emilinks door.
I have a job now and I can’t but look back at that day and smile. I learned a good habit in a hard way: A GOOD DOOR OR NONE AT ALL. And it has stayed with me till this day. #Emilinks #MyDoorStory

5) Adeshola S. – #Day 14 This is my home, this is where I live and as you can see, my bathroom door is bad, it has just one handle, instead of two, the handles have broken, but we manage just one, the second handle is damaged beyond remedy, so I had to throw it away because it was useless. Whenever we want to bath we always ensure the door is wide open, because if it closes in on someone, another person has to open it from the outside. One day, my husband had gone to work, it was just me and my little girl at home. When I finished my chores, I decided to have my bath. My little girl stood at the door, and as I was having my bath, I was singing to her so she doesn’t get bored, Just when I had soap on my face. I heard a click sound, my daughter had locked me in the bathroom. I quickly rinsed the soap off my face. I thought of how to get out, a door was separating my daughter and I. The handle was outside on her side. I called out to her, Aminat, please open the door, use the handle, I gave all sort of instructions but she was just too young to comprehend all I was saying. Even if she knew what a doorhandle was, her hand could not reach it, she was just a year & some months old. I thought of who to call and remembered my phone was in the living room. I felt so helpless, I was sweating profusely even though I had just had my bath. My daughter was already crying to see her mummy, I was crying too. My husband was the only person who could let me out, because he also had the key to the main entrance, but he wouldn’t be back until nightfall. So will I be in this bathroom till he comes? No way. My daughter was still crying, I also cried and wondered what to do, then something told me to throw my weight at the door. I called out “Aminat, please move away from the door” because she stood right there throughout and was also banging at the door. “Aminat please” I begged. So she wouldn’t get hurt. I threw myself at the door once, then twice and then it opened wide. I didn’t know my daughter was still behind the door, She screamed as the door opened, the door had hit her and she fell down. I carried her to myself, pacified her and checked all of her body. She had a few bruises on her legs. I told her ” Aminat, why did you put me through all of this” and hugged her to myself. I vowed ” No door will ever come between my daughter and I again” I can’t imagine going through such pain, anguish, anxiety and fear again. I will surely get the Emilinks Door myself even if my husband refuses to buy it. #MyDoorStory #Emilinks
6) Moses B. – Don’t Judge a Door by its look… this will be an ideal title of my worst door story. My story happen sometimes late last month we I went to my nephew’s school for their speech and giving day. And somehow I ate something bad that ‘spolit’ my tummy and made me hurriedly run out of the hall and look for a toilet to ‘poo’. so I headed to the classroom area and was lucky enough to find the toilets. Lucky enough they were neat and there was water, so I entered one of the toilets locked the door and bent down to ‘do my business’. After I was done that was where my nightmare began; I stood up adjusted my dressing and step towards the door to go back to the hall. I grabbed the door handled and turned the nob and that was when I realised the nob was spoilt and could only be opened from behind only. I was trapped in the toilet struggling to open but nothing was working, that was when I began sweating. what made matter worst was that I left my phone in the hall with my elder sister who was using it to take some picture and since it was not school day nobody was close to hear my scream or the bangs I was making on the door. Stucked in the toilet for like 30 minutes and practically soaked from sweating… I was left with no option but to break the door down one way or another I had to look for a way out. so I practically tore down the door to get to the handle from the inside to be able to reach the lock from inside before I finally was able to free myself. Phewww!!!! Boy was I glad to be out. I never told my sister my experience until recently when I found out about #Emilinks doors, and after telling her advised her to bring it up during the PTA meeting to change their doors to standard #Emilinks durable and reliable doors… cos I can assure that if it was a child that went to my experience it might be a whole story altogether. #MyDoorStory – Day 13
7) Abdulrasheed M. #Emilinks and �#�MyDoorStory�#DAY14#
Good doors are not only for decoration, they are primarily for SECURITY and PRIVACY… Its sadden that my door can neither be used to decorate, secure or provide privacy as #EMILINKS Doors Will do. My friends call it TRANSPARENT DOOR…but I surely know they are mocking me.
With this door, I’ve lost most of my valuables to theft on several occasions. Honestly, its just as good as not having a door because I stopped using padlock on it when I found out, it was even more easier for thieves to break into my room through the net than breaking the padlock.
With this door, my room it’s a free entry and exit venue, it cost me no paints, no padlock and no key. The only expenses I keep incurring on a monthly basis is the COST OF REPLACING THE NET, which I’m so sure would have been avoided if my landlord can afford a sure door from an international recognized door vendor like #EMILINKS.
My major concern is not the lack of security, fancy but the complete lack of privacy caused by the door. I hardly hide anything in my room without someone else having access to it. The most annoying thing I do hear from my landlady is, ‘’Welcome, I entered into your room to take some salt, sugar, pepper… when you were not at home”. Its so provoking.
Pls can she ever tried that in a room where #EMILINKS doors were installed? Question Of The day.
8) @gbxmi – Day 14 #Emilinks #MyDoorStory
So it happened that we had someone from the village over in our house for a few days and this door was his accomplice.
Whenever he hears someone has gone into the bathroom, he comes to the peephole to wait… Not to hold your towel or something but to check you out! I mean I’d like to think the mysteries of my terrible voice should be hidden and my private bathroom rituals remain private. Isssssh !! This continued until one day that my baby brother ran in after playing football that day and saw his favourite “uncle” watching his sister bath. Thank God for the Nigerian films,he has watched. He was able to decode what was happening.
He called him out, Told me as soon as I came out of the bathroom and you can be sure who was on his way back to Ondo that afternoon. He won’t be trying that on us again.
So this door right here, was his accomplice, his tool in committing the crime. I wish we had changed it to one of those lovely EMILINKS doors before he came so I won’t have this story to tell.@bellanaijaonline #emilinks#mydoorstory
9) @ahmed4love17 m – Oh no, not again” was the thoughts running through my
head as I was standing on the chair with my friend who came to visit while my brothers chased the 2 rats that managed to sneak into our house yet again around the sitting room. This has turned into an almost normal occurrence since we packed into this house. This really bad door that leads to the backyard serves as an entrance to both humans and rodents alike. We have patched up this door as much as we could but it’s as if the rats have built their own secret way in through the door that we can’t figure out. God save you if you leave your food anyhow for a short time, just know you will go hungry that day.
We do a total cleanup of the house twice a week cos you’re sure to pack out decaying food from behind the cupboards and chairs and every hidden nook and cranny in the house. Worst of all, my friend has sworn never to come to our house again even though I have promised her that we have gotten a brand new emilinks door and we no longer see those rats
10) @mamafunmilayo – Let me call this thing a door and forever remain untruthful to myself, this is no door but a shallow covering. We were in a hurry to leave our old house since we were tenants there, everything we had was substandard. From the cushion to the doors. As beautiful as our bathroom looks, the door is an appalling sight to behold. A visitor once came and was very pressed and needed to visit the toilet , I had to follow the visitor so I can help her with the door. Renovation is going on steadily in our house and our chairs have just been changed, change they say is a gradual process and once my husband collects the loan from police college bank at Ikeja , I will make it a duty upon myself that our disgraceful door is being changed to #emilinks doors which company is very reputable for producing wardrobe doors , kitchen and bathroom doors. Very fortunately, this season is the best time of the year to buy from emilinks as they provide huge discount to prospective buyers. This is#mydoorstory day 14
