A family member or a buddy asked you to help him move a couch. “Yeah sure”, you respond. Simple enough right? Wrong. Moving a couch is awful, it always starts out feeling light but then gets heavier as you realize that the distance you must travel is further then you thought. Your grip is slipping and the other guy is going way to fast or slow. You desperately want to stop and take a break and regain your handle on the couch, but the end is so close. “Watch the wall there”, the other person will say. “Yeah, yeah I got it”, you say in response as you lightly scrape against the wall leaving a tiny mark you hope they won’t notice later. Oh no! A doorway and its oddly shaped so it looks like this couch isn’t getting through. But your partner will not give up and so the fighting begins. There’s always fighting when moving furniture as the other person gives vague instructions and the two of you become more and more frustrated as you try jam this thing through. They may suggest to take the cushions off and then the couch legs. What was supposed to take a few minutes ends up taking an hour.
Here is a clip from Family Guy which illustrates this perfectly.
