Happy Furniture Day...or not

I was super excited when the Freed's truck pulled up this morning. We had our carpets cleaned yesterday so everything was nice and clean and ready for some furniture.

As they started bringing it in the house I noticed under the plastic that it looked rather like red. The deliver guy said something like, "Yeah, a new red couch is gonna look great in here!" and I responded, "Ummmm....we ordered green."

They stopped dead in their tracks. The delivery guy looked at the invoice and it didn't specify an actual color name (it said, "London", like that is a proper name for a color!) so he had to call the store. They headed out to their next delivery and said they'd give us a call when they knew more.

So, when they called they said something like, "We have someone locating your correct merchandise. Can we deliver it tomorrow?" I sure hope our correct merchandise is waiting somewhere all ready to be delivered, because I really don't want to go another 6 weeks without living room furniture! (Especially since we already got rid of our old stuff!)

Oh man, that stinks! I hope your GREEN couch comes sooner rather than later...it's not fun having to lounge around on hard floors. :)

That's not very nice! Hopefully the right one comes soon so you can feel like your house is all put back together.
