When everything that can go wrong…. does. Part 2

.

We woke Saturday morning trying to laugh at how horrible the day before had been. It was a definite nightmare, but the sun was shining, the birds were singing and we had new leather chairs to unpack!

.

.

We also had large tracks torn in our lawn from our friend’s giant diesel truck. Of course it had to rain while we were gone the night before, making the ground nice and slippery when he backed up to the porch. 😬

Oh well, out to the barn we went to unwrap the chairs. These chairs… the pretty caramel colored ones we picked out at the store.

.

.

And when we unwrapped the first one?

.

.

It was the wrong color. And had no legs. WTF??? I was livid. After all we went through to get the damn things! I was even pissed off at the tag…

.

.

Real natural? As opposed to what…. fake natural, or real pleather?

I was sputtering and reaching for my phone to call the store and pitch a fit when the husband decided he liked the wrong color and wanted to keep them. Which meant one of two things… he didn’t want to hear me bitch and rant or the thought of waiting another 2 months for replacements and going through the whole warehouse trip again was simply too much.

Either way, he wanted them. And though I wasn’t happy with the much darker color, sometimes I have to remember it’s his man cave and he should be allowed to choose something every now and then. (not that I’ll make a habit of that mind you) But we still had to deal with the no legs issue. We searched the boxes and the wrappings and under the cushions. Nothing. I was getting ready to call the store again and pitch a fit when the husband noticed a string hanging under the second chair.

.

.

There was a zippered compartment under each chair with a box of legs. Clever. But I have to wonder how many other clueless customers search in vain.

.

.

Pieces and parts. And a few hammer shots later…

.

.

I read another tag.

.

.

Our leather chairs are going to have zits and mosquito bites? WTH.

.

.

So there they are. In all their too damned dark glory.

.

.

Husband is happy, and I have to admit they’re very comfortable. But I’m thinking a few strategically placed throw pillows will go a long way to pull it altogether.

😉

  1. Somewhere out there someone is composing the WP dark chair blues. And the comment and all traces will be lost. Packed away in the secret compartment with an extra set of legs.

  2. Oh my lord. You can’t get a break, can you?
    And NO throw pillows, it’s his room! HA. I know, it’s hard….I would want to do the same thing.
    I knew about the feet in the zippered part because most pieces I’ve purchased over the past few years, well they’ve tried to trick me that way too.
    They’re lovely!

  3. Oh, hell no. I was almost afraid to read day 2. And they were the wrong chairs… The tag that says natural leather may have holes and scratches? No. Just no. Use that “natural leather” section for one of your other chairs and start with a prefect piece of leather for my expensive ass chair… I may have still made a stink with the furniture store. Give them a bad review online when the hubby isn’t looking.

    1. I actually did call the store, unbeknownst to my other half. Turns out the salesperson had ordered the wrong color from the get go. They were very nice about it and offered to pick up the wrong ones for free as well as deliver another set, but the husband is loving the wrong color so I declined. So they gave me 15% off the matching footstool I just ordered. It pays to bitch!
