So it's 6:40 AM on Saturday and I just finished ironing my new silk drapes from Pottery Barn.
I ordered them on Tuesday night, they were scheduled for delivery yesterday. Yesterday, I got the shipping confirmation and immediately tried to track everything and make sure it would all be here so I can get these puppies hung this weekend.
Slight snafu - the rings were "stuck" somewhere in the western part of the state and UPS couldn't find them. No problem - I hustled on out to the big mall and tried to buy them. Ooops - out of the ring size that I wanted so I settled for the larger size and called it all good.
Got home last night and found a mountain of boxes in our garage. Thank you, Mr. UPS man! I started unpacking the boxes and began ironing the panels and then got too tired so I decided to finish up this morning.
6:00 AM - crank up the iron and finish pressing the other panels.
6:35 AM - Open the box that looks like the rods will be in there. One stinking rod comes out.
6:37 AM - Call UPS to find out that yes, one of the boxes is actually missing despite it being shown as "delivered" in the tracking system. And I have to call Pottery Barn and get them to contact UPS to authorize a search for the item. Yeah, the morons who actually didn't put the correct tracking numbers with the correct items as I found out by talking to the UPS guy.
Oh, and get this - you know what actually did show up after all? The stupid rings. Now I have to schlep the ones I bought yesterday back out to the store. And I bet I'll be buying another stupid curtain rod too. ARGH.
See, I knew it was a bad idea to finally buy something from them. Bastards.
