My Entire Day
can be summed up in the following CraigsList post. I wish I could say that it was not posted by me, but in fact, it was.

Help this damsel in distress please! tomorrow morning before 8:30 is ideal or after 5:30 PM.
I bought a full-size box spring and it does not fit up my apartment stairs (5th floor walkup). I have heard that you can saw it and fold it and then unfold it again at the top.
The box spring is sitting at the bottom of my stairs. I assume that it will be thrown out by someone soon if I don't get it up SOON.
Thus, this must happen tomorrow (tuesday) early AM or evening.
I will pay $50 to anyone who can get this thing up the stairs and make it work again once it is at the top. Will only pay if it is a workable boxspring at the end of the process. Thanks!!!!
