Re: Settling in

My old boss ordered a desk from IKEA and they had the same problem...slow
delivery, and then after the wait, there were wrong parts in there...and it
couldn't be assembled.  So they had to wait - again - for the right part to be
sent.  Total of about 3 months before he got everything he needed to put his
desk together.

Subject: [CHAT] Settling in

Finally beginning to
feel at home here. Spent most of yesterday and  
part of today assembling two
chests of drawers from IKEA. They  
should've warned me. At the very least,
the box should have said "Not  
suitable for assembly by persons over 70 years
of age." It could've  
also said "Having three hands highly recommended." I'm
so stiff and  
sore I can barely keep my most used body parts in operation.
We won't go into why it took a month for IKEA to deliver the kits-- 
only to
say they are a very difficult company to communicate with. But  
now the
chests are done and I can load the drawers and quit living out  
of suitcases,
backpacks, and plastic bags.
