What? No Skip the Dishes or Door Dash?
And no fat ladies singing either. :cuss:
The Useless Trucking Company, UTC, and the Big American Box Store, BABS, still can't get their act together.
UTC showed up yesterday without announcing they were coming, and of course no one was home.
So the BABS says they will send someone out with the appliances last night. Another no show.

Maybe today. [icon_lol2.gif]

Can the BABS be more unreliable?

The Gong Show continues.

The UTC showed up today with both appliances, but one was damaged. :200:
So this family still does not have a range.

Will the fat lady ever sing?

I need to learn how to make multiple accounts like everyone else.
Wait… does that mean I’d then be a lunatic like them then 🤔

I feel your pain. Took one store 6 months to get it together and get it right. They know it’s damaged when it leaves the store but still had it delivered.
Truths can be backed up by facts - do you have any?

I went through that with a brand new delivered dryer. Scratches on the side. I told them, "If I wanted to buy second hand looking stuff, I would have bought second hand stuff, take it BACK and re-place it." They did but I won't step foot in there now.

Did that a bit different. Made notes of the cosmetic damages on the dryer of a washer dryer set,
then negotiated that against the price of another appliance.

Ended up with a drastic discount on the dryer, and a new fridge for less than half the cost, delivery fees waived.

It's all in the negotiation, don't be timid, nor an *bleep*. It works.

The washer and dryer sit in a dark corner of the basement anyways, Didn't care
about the scratch and ding for the money it saved in the long run.

That's 20 ish years ago now. All still working.

So what kind of damage? Would it not work till it was replaced?

Oven door window was broken.
No idea when the BABS gets them a range now. Useless twits.

Perhaps "lending' a lesser model until the proper one arrives is an option... They have a family to feed! How upsetting, and Christmas coming..how are they supposed to bake cookies!

They could use the stove top and get an air fryer oven. Might get them by until a new one arrives.

The store needs to step up and help

Today I’m disappointed and disgusted at the human race. The selfishness of people make me sick.
It’s a me me me world. When people feed off of the less fortunate, the weak and even the dead,
to enhance their agendas, it really shows who divided the world is. People who’s are good. And
people who pretend to be.

No. I wish. Sadly, it’s every day people that are horrible humans.

Where on earth are peeps witnessing feeding off the dead? In general, humans in Canada are pretty great.
