Just What I Wanted…

I’m working on organizing all of my crafty things. I want them all together, once and for all. Easy to find, easy to use. I figure that I’m more likely to use crafty things if I can find them, right?

I went to Office Max today to pick up a nice new table for my crafting room after a long hunt to find the type of table I wanted. Stuffed it in my car, and drove home. It was pouring down rain when I got home, so we left it in the car for awhile, waiting for the rain to let up.

We just went outside to get the table, carrying it in to the house. When we reached the back door, Mike brought it in the house and I went back to shut the garage door. When I walked back in the house, Mike asked, “Are you ok with these corners?” He pulled back the open edge of the box – the part that I never saw when the sales clerk at Office Max put it in my car – to see that the corners are completely mangled. They are all but missing! The trim is there, but then the table itself is missing! Gah!

Now I either get to stuff it back in the Honda or I need to find someone with a truck that can help me take it back over there tomorrow. I can’t even express how annoyed I am. Yeah, I really wanted a table that was all busted up. Thanks.

Sorry that happened! I bought mine at Wal-Mart a few years ago. It fit in the back of my Acclaim with no problems at all. You probably will get it cheaper there…I find that some things are cheaper at an office store and others at Wal-Mart.

I hope you return it and get a refund as well as telling management why you are returning it.

Ugh! I’m sorry that happened! I work for a similar store, and I know that sometimes furniture comes back damaged like that, and we did not realize it. I really think our warehouse people are seriously violent. So take it back, certainly – but the Office Max people might not have realized…
And I’m jealous that you have a craft room! Getting ready for Stampin Up workshops should be so much easier!
