And I didn't even have to go to Ann Arbor. Screw all those artsyfartsy stores that want $3k for uncomfortable and artsy to the point of kitsch couches that take 8-12 weeks for delivery. Good quality, contemporary grey overstuffed fake-suede couch for a reasonable price that I can actually afford, even after being jacked so severely on the bills. I can probably even afford to get the matching loveseat. Thank you, Fi from my office, you rule. She's the one who told me to go to TEC and Value City. I headed to Value City first, and stopped at the La-Z-Boy outlet on my way. Immediate assault by the sales drones. I was seconds from pointing and screaming "you call these couches? YOU WILL GET NOTHING!" So I bailed for Value City. As it turns out, it's way the hell out on Eureka, practically past Taylor. And it's hiding behind a CVS. I caught just a glimpse of it as I was passing by, but do to my l33t parking lot navigation sk1llz, I got there. Took me like 10 minutes to find a great couch for a decent price. The salesman just sort of hung out, answered my questions when I asked them, and gave me his card on my way out. Man's my hero, a salesman that realizes people don't like to be stalked and babbled at. So as of monday, no more fucking futon, that remnant of a life I've left behind. Well, it's going to get a makeover in 1 1/2" woodscrews and stuffed in the computer room, but I won't be sitting on it much any more.
