The Zadge’s new couch finally was delivered yesterday. The Zadge ordered it from Restoration Hardware last summer:
It was supposed to be delivered to Old Vicky the second week of October. Uh, of 2009. That’s last year.
Instead, every two weeks, Restoration Hardware would call The Zadge and say, “Oh, I’m sorry, we’re a bit backed up. It will be delivered in two weeks.” The Zadge endured these calls for FOUR FREAKIN’ months, until The Zadge lost it and ended up calling the CEO of Restoration Hardware.
Oh, yes she did.
And wouldn’t you know, the couch arrived two weeks later AND they took $500 off the price! The squeaky wheel DOES get the 20% discount!!!
And the movers were nice enough to move the ole’ dog Chillaxin’ Pad out to the curb, where The Zadge put a big “Free Couch” sign on it. So Old Vicky was looking a bit ghetto for most of the day, what with the skanky old sofa sitting on the curb. Until some nice girl responded to my “Free!! Couch!!” add on Craigslist and came over with a friend and hauled the sucker away.
Ghetto no more!!
That was yesterday.
Here’s what the new couch looks like today:
So basically, five months, an irate call to Mr. CEO, and a couple thousand of dollars later, we are just back to exactly where we left off with the ghetto couch – the Boyz (Bigger) Chillaxin’ Pad!
