When the items were delivered, they were placed in my bedroom and the delivery men turned to leave.
"Aren't you going to assemble them?" I asked.
"No, we're just the delivery men." And then they left.
The boxes said 'Very Heavy' and stated that two people would be needed to construct the furniture.
I opened a box and got out the instructions - how hard could it be?
This hard... Help!
I'm not very good with visual instructions. You know the ones that say attach A to B using C.
I'm afraid I didn't get any further than looking at the page.
Luckily my husband is not only good at creating timelines, he is also good at putting together furniture and decided that as my step-son was staying, it would be a good opportunity to teach him some important skills (ones that I am obviously lacking). As you can see from the photograph, they did a great job but it took them ALL DAY!.
And then they did this with the polystyrene packaging!
We finally checked the email again to see there was an asterisk beside the statement saying that they would deliver and assemble the furniture. The small print said that they would not assemble 'small items'.
My question to you is... Would you call three large chest of drawers small? There may be an idea for a story here.
