For those of you who’ve been following along with the crisis on Twitter … yes, my furniture did finally arrive!
I know, I know – it’s just a bench – but in my defense, it really brings the room together, and it gives me a place to tie my shoes because my bed is really tall, and most importantly – we ordered the thing like a month and a half ago.
Closure is a positive motivator! 😉
I always hate waiting around for delivery and service peoples to come to the house because it seems like just the most unproductive way that I can possibly spend my day. If I try to start working on something, they’ll show up as soon as I really get into it and if I wait patiently, they’ll hold off until two minutes before the end of the scheduled window and then be here for hours…
Of course, I suppose the logical way to play their game would be to start on something just to trigger their early arrival, but I’m not sure if it’s that simple or if delivery schedulers have already thought of that clever workaround to their sophisticated waiting game. Thankfully with today’s delivery just being one stupid, little bench, said drop-off took all of about five minutes and they were on their way.
The only real delay was the first two hours that I sat waiting when apparently I heard my wife say that the delivery window started at 12:15pm when it really didn’t start until 2:15pm … but that’s not really something I can hold them accountable for, anyways… 😛
