Eying the Time

And so, today begins Attempt Three in the Saga of the Appliance Delivery. They have less than 2 hours to show up. If they don't... I get to sic my wife on them and she gets to have her way with the delivery company, Home Depot, and anyone who gets in between.

What irritates me is how bloody inconvenient it's been for ME, the consumer. Every time the delivery is scheduled, that's a day where I have to rearrange my schedule, wait for a certain span of hours, put the cats out on the porch (and isn't THAT fun), and start unloading the refrigerator. Every time they don't show up, I get to reverse the process. Sigh.

God, I hope they actually show today. They PROMISED. *shakes fist*

Saga of the Appliances, Part 3...

In the beginning, there was Part 1: THE FAILED DELIVERY.
Then came Part 2: RETURN OF THE FAILED DELIVERY.
And now, Part 3... THE FAILED DELIVERY STRIKES AGAIN.

What happened? Well, on the good side, they showed up. A week late, but they actually showed up. They cut it a little tight, since they had until 12 before we unleashed holy wrath on everyone, and they called at 11:23 and showed at 11:55.

That's when the fun began.
They couldn't install the stove because it was hardwired into the wall. They couldn't even touch it because it was hardwired.
They couldn't touch the dishwasher because it had hard copper pipes.
They couldn't touch the refrigerator because it had no shutoff valve behind it.

So I sent them away to reschedule. Now to get a plumber and an electrician. Oh, and must figure out where the heck the water shutoff for the fridge -is-. Oy.

This project is cursed. Sigh. Very frustrated.
