Blowin off steam

So.......I bought a new dining room table and 4 chairs (gorgeous gathering table, not normal table height but counter height and taller chairs) back in Aug. and it was supposed to be delivered on Aug. 31st. Few days before delivery, furniture place calls and says it will be another 3 weeks and offered to deliver the display model until mine arrived.

No biggie. Told him not to worry bout it since we dont eat at the table anyway, and I can wait the 3 weeks.

3 weeks goes by and I call them to see whats goin on. He says YES, its will be delivered tomorrow!

Next day, still no table. Called em back, says hes terribly sorry but they forgot the chairs and only the table was there. Said it would be another few weeks and insisted on bringing up the display model.

I agreed and they brought it over later that evening.

Few more weeks go by...fast forward to yesterday. Furniture place calls and says its all here and they will deliver MY set Tuesday evening. GREAT!! They show up, dump off the chairs and table (which is still in the box). I then proceed to tear open the box and put that som-bitch together when I notice that it seems smaller. :?

Sure enough, they brought me the wrong table. I immediatley called but they were closed. Called this morning and they said they would correct it and would bring me the right table this afternoon. :evil:

Im just pissed.....really really pissed. Sad part is, I complimented on thier customer service skills in the beginning as they honestly exceeded my expectations and I was happy with the way things were originally handled.

**SIGH** much better now. :wink:

that is a bummer. was this a nationally known furnture store?

Someone stole my "Help is on the way" sign today. And I think it was the fruitcake maintainence guy who drove by on his goofy a$$ golf cart the other day booing at me.

Do I have to write another letter to the ACLU?

Service in this country sucks and I hate people that lie to you just to get you off the phone!!!!

Anyway, I feel your pain... remember that Dishwasher... not until Oct 20th at the earliest now... my poor dish panned hands!!!! :shock: And I love the fact that they had a $50 rebate on the damn things but didnt have any in stock! I mean-Maytag did this! Twits!!!

Empthy abound here... when we got out here, we had to buy everything new (just sold most of our stuff cause we didn't want to lug it across country). Opened up a credit account with McMahan's because they operate as their own bank, and we didn't want to go through Wells Fargo Finance

I'll spare the gory details, but can sum it up with this: We placed our furniture order back in March (sectional, coffee table, dining room set, bedroom set, household appliances etc.) including $1700 for a solid cherry wall unit for my big screen.....

which I still don't have. When I ordered that thing, they said it had to be shipped from Vietnam, and that it was on a crate in the Pacific somewhere--I'll have it in a couple of weeks. Then 2 weeks later it was in a crate at a loading dock in Northern California, but it was lost. Then they found it, but the union was on strike, and no trucks were leaving that dock. Then they said they were going to break strike lines and get it, and we should have it in two weeks. 3 weeks later they said they were going to get it and then truck it down to Los Angeles and then truck it up to Oregon. Then it was in Los Angeles. Then it was back in that original crate back in Northern California.

I went in there to make my September payment back at the end of August...their story now? Waiting on an order from Vietnam, I should have it in 3-4 months.

Think maybe they've done a little lying to me?

Never again...never, never again will I do business with these people.

...And don't even get me started on the fact that I'm paying all that interest so they can only report to TU and not the other 2 like they said they would...

Well, hopefully they report it correctly. I paid my account off in full with them 10 years ago, never late a single payment, and yet they have been reporting me as deliquent. I have called them on this 3 times now and each time it will disappear from my report, but just last year, sure enough, they started reporting me deliquent again. I just don't get it. I am so angry with this company!

Welcome!

:confused: SurfMonkey?

You're doing quite a bit of surfing this evening. Did ya know this post was uhhh, over 3 years old? :lol:

LOL. Yes, I noticed after I had posted to it! :oops: Oh, well. I have just been so angry with McMahan's and when I saw this post, I just couldn't help but to respond. But I just got off the phone with them and hopefully I will finally get this straightened out, after 10 years! The lady couldn't explain why they were reporting it since the account had been in good standing the whole time and it was more than 10 years old! :roll: But thank you for the welcome. I will try to pay attention to the dates. :wink:
