Boldly I travel!
Welcome to Shopping Hell!
I managed to avoid all conspicious consumption and focus on the meaning of life, love and Christmas until today, when I entered shopping hell!

Oh My God! The inhumanity of if all.
All wanted was to buy 2 chairs for my living room...saw the ad...drove around til I fell upon the Sawgrass Mills store...They didn't have the chairs I wanted. Drove to my office - called the store I know had my chairs - they won't honor the ad.
Called the store from home - ran my story by another saleswoman. Still no go, BUT I got her to listen (Joan) and she says she'll pass on my request to the store Manager Len Eby.

Meanwhile, I googled the corporate office in Monroe Michigan, home of La -Z- Boy and got a name and a fax #. Wrote a wonderful, detailed to the max, kick ass fax! Fax won't configure. By this time it's midnight and I've invested 4.5 hours in this quest.

Will I quit now? Hell no! I get online..go to and e-mail the company.

Let's see what happens next in the Quest for Furniture!
