You Can Not Make This Up!
There was a modern furniture store located on the corner of 30 St & 1st Ave North in St. Petersburg. The perfect Red Couch was on display there. It was out of our price range so we saved and saved for 6 months to buy it. Finally the day arrived & we purchased the couch!!! I especially was so pleased!! The next day we eagerly awaited for it to be delivered. The couch arrived and it was BEAUTIFUL!
The guys started to bring it up the steps to the front door…….. The couch was too big for our front door! The delivery guys explained that it was all our fault. The doors in the old homes in South Tampa were a standard 34 inches wide. All the newer homes are 38+ inches wide. Sadly, we said, “Well, I guess you need to take it back.”
The guys laughed and said, “I am one of the owners and that’s your problem!!!” and left the couch in our front yard. After some heated words they drove away. We went 3 blocks away and had the check stopped immediately. Back at home we called the store owner. He actually said, “You bought it. You figure out how to get it in the house!” In a calm voice Carrie said “We stopped payment on the check. Pick up your couch or we will call the police for illegal dumping.” Oh, then the furniture store closed!!
The Red Couch was picked up right away. Now we have a beautiful couch from Larman’s Furniture in Ybor City.
