I guess you can call this a rant, throwing a fit, or just pitching a bitch….Either way you look at it, it a real pisser. Here’s the stories:
On October 3rd, I bought a new 2012 Chevy 4 door crewcab pickup…..I had several things added to it, including new step rails, bedliner, etc. I wanted a new fiberglass tunneu cover also, so I ordered one from the company that makes them for Chevrolet customers. The dealer sends the customers over to this company, they take down all in info, such as matching the color to the truck, bed size, type, etc. After everything was put on that I wanted, I headed there. All information was taken, and the lady said it would take about 3 weeks to get it in. I asked her if she needed to measure the bed…..” No…I got it”. I pay for it and leave…..Yesterday they call and the cover is in, come up about 10:00am, and we’ll put it on. After drinking the right amount of coffee so I could drive, get my eye open, and my heart started, I went to town about 12 miles away. The guy had it on the forklift ready to put on….guess what? It’s the wrong size….!!!!! The color was a perfect match, but the cover was too long…...what a pisser..!! The guy gets on the phone to the company who makes these covers in Elkheart, Indiana, and orders another, plus an email, and a rush job….maybe 2 weeks (yea right)....Ok…that’s that. I’ll have to wait another 2-3 weeks for another one….....THEN…... I head down to Sears to look at and possibly buy a new roll-around tool box for the shop. I pick out the big double-decker that I want with plenty of drawers up top and bigger drawers on the bottom, and on casters.
I tried several others, and the drawers seemed flimsy, and the ball bearing slides were terrible fitting…The one I bought seemed better, so they go to load it in the truck (the one without the cover), and the drawers started falling out, and 3 of them actually came apart, and pulled off the inside of the cabinet….Guess what?
It was the only one they had in that style, and it was on sale (I should of known better). The lady said “Do you want me to order another for you”? ” Hell no lady, it’ll be just as bad as this one” ...I got to looking closer at some of the other ones, and they were falling apart. A made in China tool box, and a tunneu cover that didn’t fit….I hope I make it home before something else happens…...I need lots more coffee…...So far, that’s my morning….I think I’ll take a nap after I eat dinner…..The end of my griping, and bending your ears…. Oh yea…..I’ve decided to build my own tool boxes in the shop. I know they’ll be better than what I can buy from places like Sears, HD, or Lowes. Ok…I’m really done now…..!!!!!!!!!
