Deliver it on time and upstairs in the correct room
Deliver it on time but leave it in the hallway
Deliver it late but in the correct room
Deliver it late only into the hallway
Do a "Carpet-Fitter" (Turn up at the wrong house with the wrong sofabed on the wrong day)
If you're in work and your missus is waiting for the sofa, they'll take it upstairs.
If it's you that's at home, they'll plonk it down just inside the front door and wait for you to offer them twenty quid to hump it upstairs.
The Mrs is at home taking delivery
*insert smutty reference about taking it thro' the back door that I'm too polite and have too much respect for Barbie's missus to put into dark, non-italicised words*Originally Posted by Barbarossa
Twenty quid you reckon!?!? I left her a fiver to offer them if they wouldn't comply
I duno, that's how much I gave the bloke who delivered the bed recentement.
He just stood there like some kind of uncouthly coiffured bell-boy waiting for me to offer him a tip. So I said; 'Look, I'll give you a few quid to get this upstairs'.
I directed proceedings (), so I thought twenty was a fair price for me not having to do manual labour.
I think they'll do a carpet-fitter. Turn up at late afternoon next Tuesday, and pull up your carpets
They will turn up, on time. They will put the sofa bed wherever your good lady wishes it to go. Taking care not to scratch or break anything. They will refuse any offer of money, say "Just doing our job, Ma'am". They will then bid her a good day and go about their business. Happy in the knowledge of a job well done and yet another satisfied customer. This will make your better half extremelly happy and you will be offered anal secks. You will refuse saying you already have a sore arse.
Their delivery spot was between 7:30 am and 1:00 pm. They turned up at 10 to 1. (!)
Conversation apparently went something like this:
Mrs B: Can you take it upstairs for me?
Argos: No Mrs, if it's over 50 KG we won't even attempt it.
Mrs B: Well you might as well take it back then, because there's no way me and my husband can do it.
Argos: Well let's just get it in the door, and we'll have a look.
Argos: We can't even get it in the door.
Mrs B: Well you can definitely take it back then!
Argos: Let's have another go.
Argos: Which room did you say you wanted it in again.
Mrs B: The back bedroom on the left.
Mrs B: I bet you're hot lugging that upstairs aren't you?
Argos: A bit, yeah.
Mrs B: Do you want a cold drink?
Argos: OK, that'd be nice.
Argos: There you go Mrs, all delivered upstairs into the bedroom for you.
Mrs B: Thanks alot Argos! Here have a can of coke each for your trouble.
Argos: Thanks Mrs. Bye then.
"a can of coke each for your trouble"
Never underestimate the power of Mrs B. to get what she wants
