Me and the wife spent most of the weekend on bad terms. We had a disastrous furniture delivery towards the end of the week that got us both in a bad mood. It turns out the warehouse got so slammed with business that they started putting people who don't normally delivery furniture on trucks and letting them drive routes. This particular pair of guys screwed up just about all of the 6 or 7 deliveries they made that day. (We were not told this until after the disaster.) They did a real number on our walls, and the final straw was when I saw one of the idiots sitting there strugging to figure out how to put the drawers back into our dresser after they got it into the bedroom. The guy sat there holding one drawer and trying to figure it out for about 10 minutes. When I saw that I kicked them both out of my house without letting them assemble my bed or anything else.
The warehouse manager came out the next day and explained what happened, and told us he had spent all day driving around to all the houses these fools had been to the night before to fix all their screwups.
Not a fun few days at all. Wife alternately crying and fuming, me having to deal with that and the customer service at the same time, her being mad at them then constantly second guessing whether I'm doing all the right things to handle it. Things have only just now calmed down but the owners of the furniture franchise are supposed to contanct us this week, at which point my house will get tense again.
The cost of fuel to operate a 6000 pound 400 horsepower half ton that does 0-60 in under 7 seconds is kind of like the price of oil changes for a Porche 911. If you have to ask you probably can't afford it.
