Boy, was she trashed!

A completely hammered Manhattan lawyer who got locked out of her Chelsea apartment yesterday nearly lost her arm when she jumped down the garbage chute to get back inside.

The hare-brained bid began when attorney Maggie Baumer came home from a long night on the town at around 6 a.m., only to find herself stuck without the keys to her first-floor apartment on West 21st Street.

A source in the building said the buzzed Baumer had given her keys to a friend.

I bet she’ll sue the building owner for failing to put a warning on the garbage chute

Per the photo, she gets a “guilty” from the FR jury.

Unfortunately you know she’ll sue the mfgr of the trash compactor equipment for failing to provide a breathalyzer and win several million $$$.

That trash compactor almost took her arm clean off. There’s a joke in this story but I can’t quite pull it out.

Anyone, anyone?

Another likely voter for Obama, if she is sober enough on Election Day to work the voting machine without breaking her hand.

She must be a Bloomberg supporter - he's for dis-arming the people.

Meaning, she helps the firm's corporate clients hire indentured servants from abroad, would be a fair guess.

She’ll probably be one of the Darwinians that set up a folding chair along the coastway to watch the storm come in.

Something’s wrong here...

If it’s a garbage chute it goes down to where the garbage is and up to the apartment????

Could she have been so drunk that she got that confused? Gravity is pretty much gravity...

“buzzed Baumer” I wonder if that was intentional.

According to the article:
Baumer figured that sliding down the trash chute would get her to the building’s basement. From there, sources said, she planned to go through the cellar and enter the building’s garden, where she would be able to open a window in her own apartment and climb inside.

Well, it could have been worse. When I was a kid in New York, the trash chute went directly into the furnace...

Fortunately for her, the old trash-burning furnaces that apartment buildings had are a thing of the past.

I get the Mission Impossible theme in my head just thinking about it.

That's probably not far from the fantasy she was living. In adventure films, daring physical stunts usually succeed.

No Hollywood ending here.

I hope the arm heals.
