Anyway yesterday I went to
The Chancellor being off today couldn't think of anything better to do with her day off than listen to me moan to poor customer service folk, so she joined me. We took with us the offending chair missing some parts and made our way down to Ikea. On arrival at the carpark I had a moment of clarity and realised that the missing pieces were there all along just stuck between another couple of bits. As I opened the door I said "Oh...oh...um...ah...guess what?"
The Chancellor was not impressed and it fueled her opinion of me that I'm an idiot. At least though I only did this in front of her and not various Ikea staff but we weren't far off a public humiliation. So we immediately hopped back into the car with my pride firmly between my legs and scooted back home. Next time I'll double check.
