In case you are wondering, between 8 and 12, really means 2
February 21, 2007
When you order new furniture and the delivery company gives you a time window of when it will be delivered, it really means that they will never show up during those hours but rather that you should just sit around your house, making sure not to even contemplate going anywhere, checking obsessively out the window for the delivery van lest you miss them knocking, wringing your hands, and having post purchase anxiety.
Once you have accomplished those things, they will arrive. Well behind schedule.
And they will literally run through your house with the furniture. And after they set it up, they will gather up all the garbage and run back out of the house, leaving a trail of it behind them. And you will wonder how, with all this running, they could be so late.
And you will discover that they just tossed all the couch cushions in a pile instead of putting them neatly on the couch, which doesn’t seem very “white glove delivery” to you.
And you will tip them anyway, because who really wants to be a furniture delivery person.
