To start my Saturday, I was stood up by the dry wall guy. Adams Homes said between 8-12; I waited until 1. I have no one to call so I had to fire off an email to the warranty coordinator. I’m sick of all this crap. Poor workmanship. Poor customer service.
The Sleep Number In Balance sheets we bought at the end of December are pilled. They are also too large for the bed. Why would you design your mattress so thin and your sheets so thick? They go on nice but then in the morning they are all bunched up. It’s too bad really since they were so soft. They also offered some sort of temperature regulating technology built in which is why we bought them. You could actually feel the difference when touching the sheets versus another fabric. I really shouldn’t have ever bought them since their return policy is crappy. I’m hoping that since I purchased a $3000 bed from them that they’ll do me right and refund me.
In the meantime, I researched sheets and it seemed as though Wamsutta Dream Zone sheets from Bed Bath and Beyond did well. $200 less a 20% off coupon (that would be $40 off, you’re welcome). I braved the mall. The Concord Mills Mall is CRAZY all the time. I swear it’s like Christmas every weekend. The interstate exit gets backed up, then It took several light changes by the mall to get in, then it’s a traffic nightmare of who has the right of way. Incoming traffic has right of way and it’s posted for them to keep moving but people miss the signs so they stop. The people at the stop sign decide to go because the others erroneously stopped. Horns are honking, near misses are narrowly avoided, it’s a friggin’ mess. After driving up and down several rows looking for a spot, I finally parked in what I believe to be a foreign country. I surely expected to see currency conversion machines and border patrol. I diligently hiked to the mall entrance.
Now some back story. The other day, Jim bought a Living Social coupon for Coldstone Creamery. What I didn’t know is that it’s only good at the Coldstone in the mall. Back story complete. So I’m walking to the mall and decide to check email to pass the time
I washed the new sheets and the old sheets and I guess I’ll brave the mall once again to make a return. I don’t remember which entrance to the mall is closest to the Sleep Number store so I decided to browse the Android Application market where I found a Simon Mall App. Look at all the options there are. Will it help? Not sure, but I’ll let ya know.
Sunday: I’m back. The application was helpful. The screen shot is from the Android Market; I’m not in Indianapolis.
I went to the Select Comfort, Sleep Number store and had to wait a while for the manager to break free. He (Chad) cheerfully gave me a refund on the sheets, no hassle despite being over 30 days. While he and his saleswoman were handling potential customers, I chimed in about how much I liked the bed. Maybe that helped?
I did some more grocery shopping today, made meatloaf and clean bathrooms. Well, I also played a video game.
