This is a lesson every renovator should learn as quickly and as painlessly as possible:
Home improvement stores stop renting their vans, trucks and other means to get your large purchase home at approximately 8:00.
I repeat: after 8:00, you can’t get your large purchase home unless you’re one of those crazies who owns a large truck in the city or one of those enviable people who own a small truck in the city.
(We wish we owned a small truck. Oh, we wish…)
Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, how would you like to help us out a bit?
See, tonight, we did a little home improvement store hopping. It’s kind of like bar hopping but with less alcohol. We wanted to check out our vanity options at Rona and Lowes since we had been so disappointed with our options at Home Depot. And besides, I think we’ve resigned ourselves to the price tag this is going to require. When budgets stretch, options open up!
We have found two that we like. And, for a while, we were pretty certain we had decided. We even bought one. And then tried to squeeze it into the little red Ford Focus that could…n’t. No worries! The guy who got it off the shelf for us told us that if it didn’t fit into our car, we could always rent a van for 20 bucks and some mileage.
Again. Home improvement stores stop renting their vans, trucks and other means to get your large purchase home at approximately 8:00. And not all of their employees know this.
Frustrated, we brought the vanity to customer service and returned it. To raise our spirits a little, we poked around the store for another 15 minutes and somehow ended up back in the vanity aisle. We started second guessing, wondering. We each had our top choice, but liked the other’s choice enough to readily agree. Standstill. So, I turn to you, the blogosphere and all the family and friends that read this blog.
Which would you prefer?
