No Aeron, either!

As if today didn't suck enough already, I found out that Room & Board, the furniture dealer I ordered the Aeron from, didn't put the actual ship date into the order. When I called the distribution center, they told me that they hadn't been told to ship it, and the earliest they could get it out would be next Tuesday. That would have it arrive here after both Paul and I had left for our Memorial Day weekend plans. They offered to ship it anyway, but it would be sitting outside, unsecured, for a week, and I wasn't willing to take that risk for a $1000 chair.

They offered me a $100 gift card for future purchases at their store. I told them that wouldn't do, since I didn't intend to purchase from their store again, and cancelled the order - I'd deal with a store that would live up to its commitments. I've re-ordered the chair from sit4less.com. It should arrive the day Paul returns from RCFM, or the next day. Of course, the way things are going, I probably won't be home to enjoy it until the third week of June.
