We moved into our new house July 2016 and were broke! Also, I was pregnant then hence had no energy or enthusiasm to set up the new place. I ignored every aspect of setting the house, anyway!
Since it was the question of $$ the husband was completely against me buying anything, like anything for the house. Come this July it will be 2 years that we would have bought the house and we still have not set it up. The frames are still empty, walls are barren and rooms are begging for some color and definition! It would take me a good 10 years to get it close to done at the speed I am going with.
After visiting India and looking at all the colorful well done houses I decided, enough is enough I need to make my house a home. Need to add color and much needed changes and get some freshness in overall decor.
Soooo, I have been contemplating buying a area rug. After much much deliberation and research and thinking and overthinking and after wasting tons of hours on the internet and scrolling through a million rugs and after looking at a zillion colors and combination and weave patterns and after spending energy and giving it my sweat and blood, I finally ordered an area rug on December 31st 2017 and spent some 800$ on it.
Well, point of the post? The Rug is still not here after a month.
As you might have guessed, it was the last piece (of-course – considering I made the decision to buy. It is not anyone’s mistake that all the pieces were gone. Just a quick look at my watsapp history I have been looking at the said piece of rug for 5 months – talk about procrastinating and not making decisions in time).
The online store people called me on the day of the delivery saying the last piece of rug was damaged and if I want to order a replacement or get a discount after seeing the rug. Well knowing me, I run in the opposite direction when anyone mentions returns, so I promptly asked them to order a replacement as I did not want to deal with returns and other nonsense that comes with it.
After two days they called me back saying – the rug is out of stock and cannot be replaced – so the only option I have is to cancel the order or see the damaged piece and if I am okay with it , take 50% discount for the rug.
I jumped at the opportunity of a discount and said fine, let us take a look at how damaged it is and go from there. The rug was supposed to be delivered on Saturday, I arranged for weekend delivery so that I am home and see it before I send the delivery guys away.
BUT – It seems the online store people are brain fried as they called me again saying the delivery guys actually ended up disposing the rug, as it was damaged and cannot be delivered. Are you f-ing kidding me?
I yelled – I know the rug was damaged and I was still going to pay 400$ for it and I have been waiting for over a month already.
Anyway I did not get the rug, the rug was disposed, I cannot order a new one as it is discontinued. I have now wasted another 3 hours behind the rug and raided the internet to find a similar looking, feeling one – in vain.
I went to the same website again and they are not going to have it in the size I want but a little smaller one, which will be available ONLY in March.
So much for getting things done. Just not liking it.
Stop laughing, I might hit you in your face if I catch you doing so. Annoyed!!!!
