Shoot! I started to send this one in. If he had watched the DIY network this wouldn't have happened.

If he hadn't run out of beer he'd be in there still. Or maybe there was a game he wanted to see.

The Cask of Amontillado?

Me too, cindy.

The Tell Tale Heart?

They don't tell you he's painted himself into corners 17 times.

The Cask of Amontillado is the story.

DIY can go wrong so easily.
On one of the last nights I worked with my father in his shop, we spent hours cutting a fancy design on the doors of some bathroom cabinets I was making.
As we closed up, satisfied with a job well done, I suddenly turned to my father.
"Daddy," I said, "we just cut the sides instead of the doors."

I wonder how Poe would have worked a power-drill into the story if he'd written it 150 years later?

"The insistent pentration of the drills, drills, drills,
drills, drills, drills, drills,
drills, drills, drills, drills,
drills, drills!"

Alte knack.

I thought it sounded more like The Tell-Tale Hardware.
