Hubby bought US a sweet little surround sound that we really really needed.
(Can you hear sarcasm in bloggy land??)
Truthfully, I didn’t put up much of a fuss. He is a pretty amazing guy so should I really complain that he went out and dropped a few hundred dollars on a system that
A) We don’t need, and
B) could have put the money towards that hardwood floor we have been saving for..or more realistically our credit card, or
3) oh yeah Did I mention we don’t need it?!
But I digress. He brings this little baby home. Gets it all set up and…
It doesn’t work
Let me shorten up a very lengthy story for you.
For the next 14 days our conversations EVERY DAY went like this.
“Hubby, when are you going to return the broken BOSE system”
“ModernMom, Don’t worry I will…I just can’t find the receipt”
We have now passed the magic 14 day return day mark that most retailers seem to have.
Now we OWN a system that we don’t need and that doesn’t work! Grrr.
Time to take action.
I packed up said system.
Drove to the store.
Talked real sweet to the little lovely behind the counter.
And then exchanged it for this:
I am all kinds of excited!
I’m not sure what it says about me that I have been lusting after the Dyson DC28 Animal Vacuum with Pneumatic Actuator, High-torque clutch, and Finger tip controls …perhaps Suburbia has finally rotted my brain.
What I do know is… that will teach him!
