In May, I fell in love. With a console table. It was beautiful and called to me. So I ordered it from Joss and Main. And then they delayed the delivery 4 times – stretching it out until December. And then they cancelled the order. And I was sad. And also angry. They were keeping me from my love. Isn’t it wonderful? So I called early last week and growled and they put the order back in because it was available on a sister site except she had to mess with it to get the price the same as what I paid because they were charging over $100 more for it. And also, after the 4th delay I emailed them and grouched so they gave me $15 off. And it was to be delivered LAST WEEK instead of December. And the sun came out and I was so happy.
|So pretty. So perfect for my living room...|
|So not pretty. :-(|
I chatted with them last Thursday because there’s no way I would not have used bad words on the phone because they are thwarting me, g*dd*mm*t, and I’ve had about enough of that lately. And they said that they'd send another one. And I have to keep this one for 3 weeks in case they want to come inspect it. And if I didn't hear from them, I could donate it.
So then Saturday, the doorbell rang and POOF there was ANOTHER huge box on my porch. YAY! I dragged it inside (heavy!), but this time, I was a bit more careful in opening the box, which was fortunate because THEY SENT THE WRONG DAMN COLOR AGAIN. I called (Wayfair.com this time) and spoke to a manager (Jesse) and sent him pictures of the boxes and the lower shelves and he said that he'd talk to the warehouse on Monday and figure out what was going on. (Both boxes said that they were the black one. Both boxes were wrong.)
Then Wednesday, I emailed Jesse because I hadn't heard anything and he came back and said that he hasn't heard back from the warehouse and he hoped that he'd have something by Friday (today, for those keeping track at home).
Soon, hopefully, maybe, possibly, my lovely lovely chest will be here where it belongs. Until then, I have TWO huge boxes taking up most of the room in my living room, I've waited 6 months for something that was supposed to take a week, and I've spent at least an hour emailing, chatting and talking to various people trying to get things straightened out. *growl. snarl.* Why can't ANYTHING be easy??
Next up, a sleeper sofa for the living room. Except I want a queen, but 60 inches wide. So at least I will remain reasonable in my demands...
