Returned the bed

The Macy’s Sterns and Foster bed that has given me 2 back aches in the past 1 1/2 weeks has been returned. I was very nervous about the propect because I bought an “as-is” floor model. $900 instead of $2400. But when 2 people told me, “hey your bed feels funny. there’s like a hole over in this spot”, I knew that going against the “as-is” contract was perfectly fine.

Kathy, the manager on the 7th floor at the Union Square Macys (literally) didn’t bat an eye at me wanting to return the bed. I told her my problem, that I hated the bed and she said, “Well you have two options… … exchange… or … return with a $65 delivery fee to get it back to the store”.

Carmen graciously around for the delivery guy at 11 this morning.

Tonight, I’m sleeping on the floor again. But that’s ok.

    So far, every time I’ve been near a Sharper Image in the last few weeks (where else are they sold?) they’ve been closed. Twice I actually walked to their door in Union Square. But they close at 7 on Sunday’s (I was there at 8) and 9 on weeknights (I was there just after a Macy’s expedition at like 9:15.

    Do you think that in the event that you might spend a bajillion dollars on a bed (which seems quite likely) that they might be willing to let you make an appointment after hours? The commissions on those things have got to be fan-tastic–I’m sure that someone would be willing to make the time for poor sad bedless you.

    Or, you could look at bed models while you’re cooling your heels in New Jersey (fun, fun, but sometimes the practical requires attention)?

    Good luck and stay warm.

    PS Unfortunately you missed your first SF earthquake by one day. Tsk, tsk.

    I missed one? Phoey. A quick google for the news didn’t turn anything up. That’s probably because SFites hardly pay them any mind, yes?

    Here’s looking at a bed, kid.

    . . . .

    According to KFOG, they felt it all the way in downtown SF. :o

    3.4? Can one feel a 3.4?

    I slept through my only earthquake in high school, a 4.0 in New Jersey. It was centered about 30 miles away in Ramapo NJ. I remember partially waking up and cursing the heavy truck that must have been going past my window. Later, I remembered the “truck” and that my window wasn’t anywhere near the street.

    Wow Jersey, you are just SO tough. :P

    Here’s a little informative reading for you:

    While you may be unimpressed with the magnitude, it’s really quite a trembler when you consider the location (most of that area is fill). So there!

    And it would have been your first California earthquake, so that’s what would have made it special. I’ve been told that size doesn’t matter ;) especially in these cases.

    Yes yes, you’re very smart.


    (and you even went and quoted Wikipedia on me! Hurumph! ;-) )
