The highway that has been closed (for you stl folks, 40) is finally opened! My commute home has (well, to work too) been cut down by at least 30 minutes.
Christmas is creeping up!
We had our new dishwasher almost delivered today. I say almost because the delivery men couldn't get our old one out,. They said that the previous home owner left the old floor down, and built the new one around it, so there was no way they could get it out without taking off the counter tops, which they are not allowed to do. So, no new dishwasher for me today! :(
The downright ugly:
Best Buy (actually, I learned they contract through Best Buy) delivery people came to put in our stove, and dropped off our microwave. He went to push the stove back and it didn't fit. That was the first issue. I ran to get Blake who was still asleep. When i explained to Blake what had happened, the delivery men looked at him and said, "well, you need to measure things before you buy them." Thanks jerk. We did, and that isn't the issue. What was the issue was that when they put in the new counter tops, they built it around the stove. We measured it and it was the exact same size as the oven except for the spot in the front which was like a 1/4 of an inch more. It felt like an eternity after the delivery man said that because we all stared at each other for a while and we had no idea what to do. We expected they would give us some assistance, or give us some ideas on what to do. After they stood there and stared at us, Blake told them to just leave it, and we'll figure it out. They left and as soon as they pulled away i noticed that the counter top (which the guy was standing in front of) was missing a huge chunk. Furious Blake called Best Buy while i filled out the survey they gave us and emailed Best Buy.
Blake hangs the phone up to say that they have to see what the delivery men said and will call us back. So, a few minutes later the phone rings. Apparently, the delivery driver told them that WE PUSHED THE STOVE BACK! I was now more furious. Blake wasn't even in the same room as them until they left. and me? Do they want me to whip out my physical therapy bills??
We are having my entire family over and some of his for Christmas eve, and im just pissed. If they hadn't been so rude about it or at least admitted they did it and apologized, i wouldn't be so mad. Rude. Rude. Rude.
The weather. I hate winter. I hate snow, I hate it all. I hear Mexico is nice this time of year, I think im running away? Anyone wanna go?
