Yahoo, were getting a table after all!

Oct 26, 2011 by glennji

See, we bought a table from Freedom Furniture the other week only to be told a few days later that we would have to wait until 2012 for delivery — and since the original estimate was two weeks, and we’d paid in full, we were far from happy. (Not unhappy enough to cancel the table altogether, mind you: we’d bought matching chairs from a different store after all.)

So we ranted and raved to each other, finally deciding to “send a stern letter” via Freedom’s website. Crafted something beautifully demanding, then followed it up with a phase-two assault email when our first only elicited a form-response — and it worked! This morning I received a timid, optimistically hopeful phone-call from Freedom telling us our new dining table will be delivered Thursday-week, for free.

Old-man-yelling-at-the-telly WIN!

It’s 8am on the first day of the month, and despite the usual late night, I’ve been up for hours. Jules has been an early riser for years now, and it has had the effect of training me to wake up at 6am each morning — for no good reason, since he’s pretty independent in the morning these days — and so here I am.
