Update on the La-Z-Boy Situation

Header-01Remember that unfortunate La-Z-Boy situation?  Well…we’re coming to a close on that.

I was pretty ruthless in the last email.  And I was even more obnoxious on the phone…when I called every single day…both the corporate and the local offices.

We ended up getting the delivery fee waived and a fair bit taken off our bill. Not enough, in my opinion, but enough to show that my obnoxiousness worked. :)

Our furniture will be delivered on Saturday.  I asked the man if there would be damage to it since I was so annoying.  He said, “This isn’t Taco Bell.  I’m not going to spit on your chalupa.”  That kinda made my day.

Lent 2014

Header-01It’s LENT!

I did not get a paczki yesterday…but I did bake a cake (that I did not eat?!).  Whatever.

I’m going to try to be better this Lent.  Here’s what I’m doing:

  • Limiting myself to one coffee a day.
  • Trying NOT to drink alcohol at all.
  • Giving up my favorite word:  f***
  • And giving up being mean/complaining/being negative.

How do you think I’ll do?  Eeeeep.

What the Heck is Going On?!

Header-01Ok, I give up. What the heck is going on out there?

My grandpa is in the hospital.

Mike’s dad is in the hospital.

My cousin Cory just broke his ankle and ended up with 7 screws and a metal plate after suergy.

Two co-workers are dealing with medical crap with their parents.

Another co-worker’s brother just went into emergency surgery.

What is going on?!

La-Z-Boy is F*cking Lazy


On Black Friday, Mike and I spent our wedding money on what we believed would be a GREAT investment. We bought a sectional and a gorgeous chair from La-Z-Boy for our living room.

We bought it on Black Friday 2013, and it still isn’t here.  Bull.

We haven’t been able to have a housewarming party (lack of seating) or any other kind of get together at all. And the worst part is that they completely failed to let us know that it was going to be late.

So I’ve been in an ongoing battle trying to get compensated for it.  Ready for this?  Here’s the latest email I sent:

Hello Facebook La-Z-Boy Team,

I have spoken with the Strongsville Store Manager and he has been incredibly helpful. They have decided to waive the $160 delivery fee, which is very much appreciated.

But I am looking for something more than this. As I understand your policy, if the furniture is NOT delivered within a month of the original suggested delivery date, we are worthy of some compensation.  Mr. ****** says that you are denying that it has been over a month.  How about some math?  

We bought the furniture on 11/29/2013.

We were told 6-8 weeks for delivery.  8 weeks would take the originally scheduled delivery date to 1/24/2014.

It is now 2/25/2014–32 FULL DAYS after the originally scheduled date. I don’t know about you, but to me, that constitutes as a month.

I know that the sectional has been delivered to the distribution facility, but it can be scheduled for delivery until the Claire chair arrives.  That is going to put us at OVER 32 FULL DAYS.

I hate to tell you this, but I’m not going to let this go. I will email, call, leave complaints on all of your social media accounts, and horrible reviews any place I can until I feel that we’ve been fairly compensated.

Call me, email me, or contact me any way you’d like to. I’m looking very forward to discussing this.

I’ve ruined plenty of men. If they think that ruining their reputation is even going to be a challenge for me, they need to think again.

I Need a Challenge…

Header-01Lately, I’m so impressed by (and jealous of) the passion that folks around me have for writing.  My friend Ally has been writing for 20+ days straight and is working on so many projects.

My friend Chris has been doing writing exercises trying to better himself.

There are people I encounter in the blogosphere that are driven to do great things with words and are hungry for guidance and advice.

And I miss having that drive sometimes.  But in truth, I think that it will need to be cultivated within me once again.  This will not be magic.  So I need your help.  I’m going to try to spark that passion again by reading, and I need suggestions.

I’m open to lots, but here are some guidelines:

  • I like nonfiction the most.
  • Please no fantasy.
  • No Hunger Games, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings anything. I won’t read it.
  • Nothing about the apocalypse. It does nothing for me.

And thats it.  So what have you got for me?

Dreaming of Cantore

Header-01Last night, I had a dream that I was hanging out with Jim Cantore.  The only thing I could get myself to say to him was that I had put him in my Guilt-Free 3 – Weatherman Edition.

I have no doubt that Dream Cantore was beyond flattered by my tribute to him.

Other Bloggy

Header-01Some of my favorite posts that I wrote focus on my ever-changing Guilt-Free 3.  So I thought, “Why not dedicate a blog to it?”

I created “The Guilt-Free 3″ blog yesterday and migrated my posts from here over there, but the plan for the blog is bigger than just creating a place for sexy pictures of all the celebrities I like to live.  This blog will serve as documentation of my current Guilt-Free 3, as well as allow me to view the changes in my taste of men over the years.

Additionally, I decided that I would also host the Guilt-Free 3s of my friends (men and women) on the blog.  So if you’d like for me to host YOUR Guilt-Free 3, just leave a comment somewhere and we’ll figure out the best way to open up this can of worms. 

If you still don’t know what a Guilt-Free 3 is, you can read about it here.  Otherwise, go visit my new blog, add it to your Feedly, and enjoy!
