My Rocking Chair Rant

I'm sorry girls, I just have to get this one off my chest.  DH and I went to collect our grey rocking chair tonight - it took nearly an hour to get there due to traffic.

Anyway, it was all boxed up and we couldn't check it till we got home as the store was about to close.  After trying to fit the 20kg in the back of my teeny car, we rushed home... opened the box and got this:

Yes, bright red!!!  I'm a right grump (due to over tiredness) and think I went as red as the chair when I first saw it.  So now, we're going to have to box it all back up and return it this weekend.  Boo.

Boo!!  That sucks :(  Hopefully you can make it a priority this weekend.  After this mistake, can you now demand they open it before you leave so this doesn't happen again?


This happened two my parents two days ago!  They went to pick up 2 custom area rugs, and the warehouse just tossed them in the back of the truck.  They got home and they weren't their rugs!  So they had to drive across the city.  Again.  Frustrating when it happens.

@ martini - for some reason it happens to me all the time!  LOL - we're having our table delivered tomorrow, so I really hope it's not wrong!


@ athena - sorry your parents had to bring the rugs back! :(


I was so frustrated but it looks like I've sorted the situation.


I called the company this morning, explained my anger at them and they apologised.  When they told me to bring the red one back, I said "I'm not carrying a 20kg chair back to you store, you made the mistake, come pick it up and bring the new one with you."  Yes, I was a bit harsh.  But it worked.  They'll be delivering it tomorrow morning so now I don't have to go back!  Woop woop.

OMG- I would have been livid!!  We had this happen with our sectional, actually.  They gave us 2 pieces with arms on the same side instead of adjoining pieces. And they tried to get us to take it back to the store ourselves (we didn't pay for delivery, DH picked it up in his truck)... I said ABSOLUTELY NOT, you will come pick up the wrong piece and deliver and set up the correct one!!  It took almost another month to get the damn thing in, and they said if anything happened to the wrong piece it was our responsibility.  So we had it plastic-wrapped in our house until the correct piece came!! LOL  Post pics when you get the correct chair in!! :)
