This weekend, we went out and got a new washer/dryer. We have a plan to move them from our first floor to the second (heaven!) and in order to do that, needed the stackable ones. Since this weekend was MA tax free day, we figured why not.
We went to Sears, found the ones we wanted, paid, and scheduled delivery for Monday. They were supposed to call on Sunday night to confirm delivery time. They didn't, but I called the 1-800 number in the morning, and there was an automated message that indicated that I would take delivery between 4:45 - 6:45. This was somewhat annoying, because I had a meeting until 4, and needed to get groceries and wanted to go to the gym, but I was more excited about the new, fancy, front loading, washer and dryer.
At 7:45 PM, I call Sears. They promise that although things are running late, I should at least get a call within the hour. At 8:30, finally get a call that they are running SO late, could they put me first on the list for the next morning. Whatever. Annoying (as the grocery store is now closed) and I wasn't planning on working from home today, but fine.
This morning? Never got a phone call on the morning delivery. At 10:45 I call the number, and I'm told they will call me in 2 hours. at 1:15, I'm ripshit, and call again. They now tell me that I have no delivery scheduled for today - can they move it to Thursday!?! AUGH! So I call Aaron (who I was trying not to bother, as he is out of town on business), who calls. He is first told that I rescheduled the delivery (bullshit) and then is told that the freaking washer/dryer is out of stock. WHAT THE FREAK?
At this point, we are considering canceling the order. But I left the house to go get milk (which we are in desperate need of) and I get home. While talking to Aaron on the phone, I drop the whole gallon of milk in the garage. It broke. There is milk all over the garage floor. I started crying. I'm just SO ANNOYED. I can't believe that something as easy as getting a washer/dryer could be this difficult - and that I couldn't just handle it myself! And then, the freaking people lie to Aaron about what I said!?!?
And then I drop the milk. Tops off a perfect day.
I need a drink.
UNBELIEVABLE! As I started to spell check this, the Sears delivery truck pulled up. And then the phone rang, it was Aaron telling me he canceled the order. Hmmm. I'm just going to sit here and let them install them. What a fracked up situation.
