I do. Sort of.
I mean, I remember what it’s supposed to look like. And I remember that I paid for it. And I remember how excited I was when I got a notification that it was in my town, and ready for delivery.
But then it didn’t come.
That was okay, because it was actually a day early, so I didn’t mind.
But the next day it didn’t come either.
The website said it would. They said it was on the truck and would be delivered by the end of the day. I swear they did.
But there’s no record of that now.
Then the next day it didn’t come either, and the status of the delivery mysteriously changed to something along the lines of “we left the package at our facility which may delay delivery.” Ya think?
The weekend came and went, and no status update was offered, aside, from “delayed, will reschedule delivery.” That weird little message about them not putting it on the truck disappeared, too.
Today the status changed again, to “in transit.”
I called the company from which I bought it. I figured they have a lot more pull with the delivery company than I do. I was told that the delay was due to the holiday rush, and that it was on the truck and would be delivered today. It’s now a few minutes before midnight, and not only do I not have my delivery, but the status report has once again been changed to “delayed.”
So here’s the deal: my fabulous (I hope!) purple couch is sitting in a “facility” a few miles from my home, and the delivery company can’t be bothered to bring it over to my house. It’s been there for nearly a week.
I know it’s a busy time of year, and honestly if it hadn’t been shipped yet I wouldn’t be annoyed, but why must they keep teasing me?
I don’t want this item sitting outside my front door all day, enticing anyone with a pickup to grab it and zoom off with it. I want it delivered safely and soundly, so I can attempt to build it (I know…) and enjoy it.
Please cross your fingers with me that tomorrow is the day. For real, this time.

Good luck! I have had the most problems with shipping freight items to customers lately and unfortunately the only entity with any pull is the shipping company. May your couch arrive soon and be beautiful!
