When we last left our online ordered family room furniture it was a no show. Thursday’s experience was more about excuses (none believed) than tables. They were listed as out for delivery, but never delivered!
Yesterday was different. Well, a little different. The trucking company still couldn’t make their 1:00 – 5:00 PM delivery window. The truck didn’t arrive until 5:45 PM.
There was a coffee table plus two end tables in the shipment.
As soon as the coffee table’s box was off the truck Helaine knew something was wrong. The box was battered and a little ripped. A quick shake brought the sound of broken glass! She refused delivery.
The other two boxes seemed fine. They were left on the floor of the garage until I was ready to assemble them.
Late this morning Helaine put a large towel on the family room floor and I opened the first box.
It didn’t look that hard and I’ve put a lot of furniture together so I gave it a try. There were a few steps I had to undo then redo, but mostly I understood and went about my business.
It wasn’t until we opened the second box that I realized the instructions were on the opposite side of the warranty! Oops.
The room still has a missing piece, but it’s really coming together… and none of the furniture wobbles!
Someone on Facebook asked if all this furniture and house work meant we were leaving? No. It means we’re staying.
