Warning: Not A Step Stool

This is a shoe rack. 

It is not a step stool!

A shoe rack is designed to provide a place for one to neatly store their shoes. Sometimes children will actually use the shoe rack and put their shoes away in a nice, neat fashion. Sometimes children's shoes will still land in a messy pile on the floor, often just inches from the shoe rack. -sigh-

A shoe rack is not designed to be used as a step stool for one who wants to reach the top shelf of their closet. 

A shoe rack is likely to collapse if used as a step stool.

A collapsed shoe rack is likely to have exposed screws that are very sharp and able to leave a deep gash in a person's foot.

A deep gash that may require a 2 hour visit to the emergency room for 10 stitches! -ouch-

There may be a lot of movie watching at our house the next few days.

I'll try to limit the amount of times I look at my teenage daughter with sympathetic mommy eyes and say, "My poor baby!"
