You know what I mean. mylot wont let me put that word on here but I think most of you know. When I got my new bed this morning, I was pretty hot under the collar. The delivery men took off before I could say, thats not what I asked for.I called them right away and yelled at 2 people before I got the manager. I told him that this is not the bed I sat on and tried out at the store. Its nothing like what the guy wrote us up for. I told them every time we get something from them its like they switched what we bought and give us a cheaper version. About the time I was really ragging them my son came home and said, mom let me talk to them. anyway, for once son was all nice about it but firm. they said they would deliver what we looked at tomorrow. hopefully its straightened out now. So, my son said we just played "good cop, bad cop" with them. He also said, now you see mom you can be the ultimate "nagger" at times. I know he just didnt want to say that word to me so he said nagger instead. so I guess the kids are right. when I get really mad (which is seldom) I can really dish it out. Are you hard to anger? Can you make a good bad cop or B--- at times?

If I'm faced with a situation like that I get tongue tied and I stammer. I have a really hard time being able to stand up to people and to be assertive. You did really well!!

i was like you when i was younger. but now that im toward the end of my life, i just kind of learned that if i let myself be walked on it continues to be like that. and my son is now an ally and makes sure i no longer allow that.

Hey MsTickle and bunnybon! MsTickle, I mean nothing by this but I've got to tell you, when I read your response, I got to laughing!! No pun intended dear! Seriously! But you stood up to me during our disagreement! But there again, it was all in typed words, not that you had to speak them in person or face to face so maybe that was easier for you? But nontheless, I had to tell you this for it did make me laugh and that's one thing that I've lacked a lot of these days because of all that's been going on and still going on. Anyways, hope you both have a great day!

If you are unhappy about a store's service the time to let them know is before you make the purchase. Waiting till they mess up is a good way to leave you frustrated and banging your head on the wall. Having worked for a furniture store before, I can tell you that customers who came at me like that never got speedy service from me. You really have to keep your calm in this kind of a situation, but still remain firm. Unloading a bunch of pent up rage only makes every worker in that store not want to deal with you, so they start playing a big game of hot potato.

i think you missed the point! we went to the store and looked at several beds and i picked one out and the saleman wrote the sale, etc and said it would be delivered. They DID NOT deliver anything near the bed i picked. so how is that my fault and not theirs? so yes, i got really mad. why would they switch to a whole different bed? unless they was trying to unload a cheaper bed for 700 bucks? the bed they brought we was lucky if it was worth half that. we was very nice when we bought it. never mind, they came through with one closer to it. why would they get it wrong 2 times?

No I understand they were in the wrong, but I'll give you some insight to how furniture stores operate. The salesperson stays in the store to sell more merchandise, and he usually passes on your order to whoever is in charge of the delivery. The delivery people load up the trucks, and usually they look at an item number or product number to determine which item they need to load. Carelessness or an improper tag on the merchandise can lead to a mistake like this. While you have every right to be mad, when you unload on someone you really only make the situation worse for yourself. Remember no one likes to be yelled at, and people are less likely to be helpful when they are feeling defensive. The best thing to do is to keep your cool, and once the mistake is fixed, then you rip into the person.

I have known some, been one a time or afew, and raised one. Hehehe We all have our better days. Nagger? I do the same thing as you do. I don't go there often but when I feel like I have been taken for a ride or my kids have been treated unjustly I come unglued. And the glue isn't real substantial as it is. Hehe yes, I can be the b at times and feel fully right in doing so. I think it keeps people on their toes. Especially if they see me coming again at some point.

Ohhhh hooooo girlfriend! I'd be just like you!! I'd give them h3ll just like you did! I mean, you bought a certain thing only to get something else? Probably even cheaper than what you bought! Oh h3ll no!! LOL Years ago hubby and I bought a bedroom set that cost a little over $3,000. and scheduled when it was to be delivered. Well, on what was supposed to be the delivery day, I waited and waited and still they didn't show so I called them and I was told that there was a mixup and that our stuff wasn't going to be delivered for a week later!! Oh I blew up!! I blew up big time! But they weren't budging in the least so that only set me off in the worst of ways! I told them that I wanted my money back and that they can keep their stuff! They were like "OK" and were going to refund my money! I was shocked!! Then I said, "So you're going to give up $3,000. worth of merchandise sold over a delivery?" That's when I got results! They didn't realize how much our order was! Then they were scrambling!! LOL Oh! But I thought we were just a nobody! No big deal till they found out how much we bought! So needless to say, we got our bedroom furniture delivered THAT afternoon free of charge as well as they set it all up for us too! So sometimes it takes a B-ATCH to get the desired results! Who's laughing now!! LOL

good for you. they wouldnt have wanted to do my oldest daughter this way. she would not have even given them a chance to deliver the wrong one next day like they did me. i ended up with a more expensive bed i guess for same price but its still the wrong one, its bigger. but at least i can live with it. and yes, the first one was the cheaper version of what we bought.

hi dear bunnybon I was very firm with that company as well when I bought that Captains Bed and they had a thousand excuses why they wont deliver it in time. I let them get away with that a few times but when I had waited for about a month and still had the bare mattress on the floor of my den I told them I cancel the purchase and I want my money back NOW.

Sounds to me that you just wanted what you bought. I could definitely see myself in that place if it happened to me. I am pretty laid back but when I do reach that point, I should have a shirt warning people too.

i think thats a lot of it. we get stepped on so much and leave it go. then it simmers, and eventually its the last straw and comes to a boil. just look out for that person/persons that really brings it out.

I can honesty say that I am the politest person you could ever meet. Normally. But when my family is unjustly attacked then I turn into a Rottweiler and go straight for their jugular. Lol. Many blessings. It is good to begin to come back to my lot. Missed you all so much.

I was a B-- just yesterday, as a matter of fact! I was calling for the payoff of a loan on my siding. Long story short, it was a rough time in my life and I didn't make a good decision. It's very high interest and on top of that there was an almost hidden clause that they had a lien on my house. To sell it I have to pay it off so I dipped into my retirement investments. They aren't much and even less now! So I got the amount and it was more than the balance I received in my monthly bill. The interest is like 17% and only about $50 of my $155 payment is applied to the principle each month. The amount got me really outraged and I told the girl I would be glad to be rid of such a den of thieves and hung up. I felt kind of bad afterward because it isn't her fault, that's just her job. But whatever happened to usury laws?! Anyway, that was my B-- moment for the year. I'm usually slow to anger and talk reasonably. Yesterday I just blew my top because I'd allowed myself to be taken advantage of and felt like a fool.

I can play bad cop because I had to in my job as a therapist at times. Normally I am not like that but as I get older I don't deal as well with stress anymore and I get angry with companies. I just blasted the credit card company a couple of days ago. But they deserved it lol

Haahaaa too funny. It was pretty obvious they were trying to cheat you if the delivery guy ran away so fast and if this isn't the first time it's happened I'd be pretty annoyed myself. I woulnd't go back there again for furniture though if they keep doing it and I'd tell as many as I could about how they try to cheat you. We can all be like that sometimes so it's OK

I don't blame u for doing what u did. They deserved everything u said to them.No, i have a pretty short fuse especially when someone is trying to cheat me, lie to me , being mean to my kids etc. I don't think i would keep on doing buisness w/people like that.

usually im hard to anger. but i was already out of sorts as you know. so it was like the straw that broke my back anyway, son is more like you. he knows how to reason with them firmly. still ended up getting one to big but i can live with that rather then going thru a 3rd delivery

It's good that things got sorted. However, if this isn't the first time that you have dealt with this store and they have repeatedly done this sort of thing, it doesn't sound as though it's a good idea to continue doing business with them. When it comes to customer service stuff, I usually leave that to my boyfriend. He is good at negotiating that stuff.

hi bunneybon I c an when it came to a 150 dollar on sale recliner that instead was brou ght a 500 dollar recliner and i told them the lot number and the p rice and they finally made it right after I told them that bait and switch were illegal in California and I would call the better business bureau. so they brought me the one I ordered and took the expensive one back.and then they finally accepted my check for that amount.

i think bait and switch is illegal every where. but i think these people just thought id except it and leave it go. when we set it up, i knew right away it was wrong. to high, yet the frame was really low. and to small in width. they brought one today that was still wrong but comfortable so i kept it. its to wide and takes up most of my little room here. i just said forget the frame as mostly i had one for coco to go under the bed. but, theirs is so close to the floor, coco cant get there any way. i just gave up since i need to have something to sleep on and im tired of fooling with them. son said it must have been a full we looked at then they sent a twin first and now a darn queen.
