Fucking Home Depot. I started the order for my blinds over a month ago, and THEY STILL HAVEN'T ORDERED THEM. I should have had them up several weeks ago, but instead they've decided to let their incompetence continue to impede me from sleeping past 9AM in my new house on the weekends, not to mention nekkid time.

First, they spent two weeks promising that they were going to work on a price match for me until I finally told them to just forget it, $140 is worth getting them off their asses at that point. Then, they finally get the measuring guy out. He tells us that since our upstairs windows are 1/4" too shallow, we can't have the blinds we want upstairs. Fine, whatever.

So we stop by a Home Depot while we're running around doing all the errands that come with a move, and the guy there acts personally offended that I would be so stupid to think that they could communicate with other stores about our order. So more time is wasted until I can get to the store where I placed the order, which is now a lot farther away from where I live. I pick out new blinds. That was a week and a half ago.

Last night, some fucking goon leaves a voicemail for me that I didn't get until after the store was closed. "Uhh, the cellular shades you ordered can't be ordered with a tilt rod, do you still want them?" Think for a second about cellular shades, google them if necessary. DO THEY TILT? NOOOOOO. Why then, would I want a tilt rod, and why would I not want them to place the goddamn order and get them in my fucking house already?

The blinds would've been in my house A MONTH AGO if they had done their jobs. Now, it's very likely that I'll have to push the install back another week because we won't be in town when they come in. Mother shitter, son of an ass. I won't get in to how the water heater dumped it's contents in to the basement carpet or the towel rods falling out of the wall.

Fuck those fuckers. Talk to Sue about where they got their blinds from. They had to special order them for similar size-related reasons. I think they're really happy with them.

I wish, the HoB I went to only had one person working the floor who spent half an hour helping another customer before she got to me to give me a quote $300 higher than Home Despot.

I have zero window coverings right now and I feel your pain. All my windows are original to the house and not a uniform size for today's shades, so I'm going to have to have everything custom made, which I so do not have money for right now. And I want to be able to walk around nekkid too, goddammit.

The angle of the dangle is inversely proportional to the heat of the meat!
