One of the final things we need to do is to get ourselves a nice patio set to go on the new screened in porch. With this, we can eat and drink and have a merry ol’ time.
Well, this time of year doesn’t offer much in the way of patio sets. Every store I checked is either selling the sets for half price (with very few left) or completely out of stock. I have been checking around online for two days.
Well, Laura and I finally agreed on a beautiful set from Sears.com, just this morning. I called a local Sears store just to check prices. They told me that the store was out of stock and I might be able to get the set online. That’s what I was going to do anyway. I bit the bullet (the set was more than I wanted to spend) and made the order. I was pretty excited and told a few people here at work about my order.
This afternoon came and I called the 800 number to check on the order. Sorry, I really don’t have faith in anything anymore. The dude on the other end said, “I am sorry sir, but that item is out of stock.” Gee, that’s weird, your website has written on it, “In stock and ready for delivery.”
I cancelled the order. I never really liked Sears anyway and am actually surprised that they are even in business anymore. Nuff said…they are under strict boycott (which is the highest level).
If anyone knows of a place to get a nice patio set this late in the season, please let me know.
