When I went there, the saleperson/manager who screwed me over wasn't there. The manager on duty said that he'd call me tomorrow.

So what I did was I went to another furniture store and bought a bed there. While I was at it, I bought an additional $1000 of bedroom furniture.

I can't wait to tell the guy tomorrow that (a) I spent $1500 on at a competitor's store, and (b) they'd never see another dime of my money.

I'd have done the same thing! That really sucks, man. :o(

So what happened when you told him? I'll bet he was crushed. This reminds me of the story of Howard Hughes buying the restaurant that gave him bad service and then firing the guy who did it.

He was surprised that I wasn't willing to let him try to make things right, and he was even more surprised that I'd spent all that money at another store. I don't think he was crushed, though. The Howard Hughes story is funny.

I'll pretty much approve anything except SPAM comments, or comments that clearly have no purpose except to piss me off, or comments that are insulting to a previous commenter.

Use anything you want for your name and email address. I think it has to at least look like a valid email address though.
