Why do why did I think for even one minute that ordering anything from Gothic Cabinet Craft would be a good idea? I should have my head examined.
Big flowery hugs and kisses to the staff of GCC on University Avenue in the Bronx, for:
- …nodding and grunting in the affirmative when we asked for a morning delivery, which turned out to translate to: “Actually, our delivery window is between 11am and 4pm, but we’ll let the delivery dispatcher tell you that on your answering machine the night before the delivery date.”
- …being oh so helpfully willing to reschedule delivery for ten days later. Still in the afternoon.
- …helpfully pointing out when I called them at 4pm today to ask whether my shelves were actually coming, that it was still 3:55pm by the clock in the store, and that therefore my order was not in any way late. Yet.
- …having such courteous regard for their driver’s zen equilibrium that they would not dare to call his cell phone to disturb him with my trivial concerns.
Never, ever again. And if you’re smart, you’ll let my mistake be your instructive example, and never do it in the first place.
