The TV saga continues…

If you recall from last time, Tweeter agreed to get me the new Sony TV. It was supposed to be in their store yesterday. I call up because I’m ready to come down there, and sure enough it isn’t. Didn’t make the shipment. Whoops!

So I tell them I’m willing to drive to another store and pick it up – no problem. The guy tells me it’s in Manchester, NH. I tell him that’s fine, but at that distance I’d need to pick the new TV up first, then come down and swap it at my house, then bring the old one back. He tells me that’s against store policy. I tell him I’ll leave a credit card. He says he’ll call me back.

He calls back and tells me there really is no TV for me in Manchester. They screwed up and showed 1 available in the computer, when really that was the floor model. He says he can get one in on Friday. Friday’s no good for me. I want it in my house up and running by Friday afternoon. I tell him I’ll just take my money back because they’ve screwed me over for too long. They can come pick up the broken TV at their leisure.

He talks to the manager. They now “guarantee” that the Sony will be delivered to my house by Friday. I say OK, knowing that it’d be a big hassle for me to have to re-shop for a TV and renegotiate the price down. We’ll see on Friday. What a bunch of idiots.

  1. Face it, you’re never going to get a working TV. You’ll be watching TV from here on out on your computer.
