Then… carefully he removed the pieces from the box, littering our living room floor with them… and one by one, he put them together. Halfway through the process… he discovered the company put the wrong pieces in the box and he couldn’t finish it. No drawers. There were supposed to be three. So he called the company and they assured him they would send him the parts as soon as they could. But they told him they were on backorder and there would be a small waiting period, of a month. He said that was ok. Then… he got the desk as put together as it could be, so I could temporarily use it. And we waited. And waited and waited for the other pieces, so he could finish it. No parts, no finished product, three months later. We’re still waiting. I do not know how much longer it will be. Like I said I’m using it. But it was only supposed to be temporary. There are holes everywhere over the desk surface because the piece I’m using for the top is actually the bottom. It’s the part the drawers attach to and then another piece of wood goes on top of that. Truth is my hubby still has a jigsaw puzzle to sort through, when the parts arrive. Such a chore. As much money as we paid for this desk… it should have come complete without this inconvenience. At one point, they offered our money back and my husband said yes. When he said surely you don’t expect us to return the desk as is? How would we transport it? They changed their mind and said the parts would be forthcoming. So we wait. But I think the next phone call will be about reimbursing us, period. Don’t you think we’ve waited long enough for this project to be completed? On the other hand, it’s better than nothing, as is. Right?
