My weekend starts now

Thursday, May 31, 2012

I'm trying to unkink my shoulders and relax.

Well, I guess baring my fangs a little helped because I got the confirmation from the furniture company today. At least they're sending me the right furniture. I do love the chair and table, but I'm still never doing business with them again. Meantime, I have about another three-week wait for the delivery.

Last night I cooked a grilled cheese in one of the new skillets. Goodness, I have four skillets, three saucepans and a stockpot! I so don't want to be like my MIL (who hated me anyway). She had tons of things socked away that she was always saving for a "special occasion." Of course, no occasion was ever special enough. I suspect Bobby would laugh hearing that someone thinks his cookware is too pretty to actually use. So it's time to detach from keeping it perfect (take THAT, Dad).

Tomorrow I spend the $150 Kohl's Cash I earned last week. Let's see -- new pillows, a purse, a stick blender -- more to be determined later.

I'm out of the hot shoes and into a cold Bud. Relax...relax...

    I agree with the others about a letter to the furniture company. I think too few people actually do anything about bad service and many of the higher ups have no clue that their clients are being badly treated.

    I'm thrilled that you're able to say "nah nah" to your dad and MIL. Way to go! Record it in your book of I'm taking my life back and you can't stop me victories! I know it isn't easy at all but what a wonderful feeling it must have been to make you and your pan a nice comfort food memory. emoticon

    I hope you go for the blender and love it as much as I love mine. I think I made soup for weeks on end just so I could use it! Have fun shopping and enjoy your weekend.

    Have fun shopping tomorrow! I'm glad you finally heard from the furniture company, but I agree that it would be best for you to write to the higher-ups and let them know what poor service you got. Years ago, my parents went into a furniture store, with my dad still dressed in his dirty construction clothes. They were prepared to drop some pretty good money on stuff, but were ignored by the salespeople, and left in disgust-and with no furniture. My mom wrote to the president, and she actually received a reply from him. He thanked her for the letter, and told her he called his entire staff into his office, and read them the letter (in which she let him know they would most certainly never shop there again). So, it could really do some good, and if nothing else, make you feel better, as Caroljean pointed out.

    So glad the furniture store came through for you . I strongly suggest you write a letter to the president and CEO (address below). Include copies of the emails, any receipts you have and what you were told by the salesman. Indicate how much you like the furniture, but are said that because of the poor customer service, you will not be shopping there again. Also indicate you have a blog and have recorded your experience there. Nothing may happen except you will feel empowered and something good may happen!
