Home depot said that the reason why Maytag didn't send the washer, dryer, and dishwasher that I ordered on November 28, 2009 is because those products do not exist and that they are still in production and they don't have a clue when I would receive them.
Maytag says that Home depot was the one with the problem and that they shouldn't have sold something to me that didn't exist. (how would I know?)
Either way I spent $1,616.05 on machines that do not exist. Lovely...
So the phone tag begins.... and it drags on...........
Me, to home depot... I ordered a washing machine, dryer, and a dishwasher on
November 28, 2009 and I would like to have them now.
Home depot.. I understand.
Me ......... No I don't think you understand. We both agreed that these would be sent to me on January 28th and I've waited patiently but they have been back ordered again. How could you possibly understand? Do you have eight kids? I have been washing clothing with a wash board by hand (seriously) but now the charm is gone and I've started taking my laundry to the landro' mat with the leftover thongs in the drum barrels and the machines that take lots of quarters. Do you know how hard it is to find quarters now a days? People never carry cash, especially not change (try coming up with 3c for the post office sometime). Besides any savings that I had gained by buying a machine that was on sale was negated by the machines that eat my quarters
Home depot...It's not our fault. Black Friday wiped out our merchandise.
Me..........That's your problem , not mine. You should not have sold merchandise that you didn't have.
Home depot...I'm sorry ma'am, is there anything else that I can do for you?
Me.........Um, yeah, you can send a washer, dryer and a dishwasher to me today.
Home depot.... ( nothing continues)
Me......I hate to have to bring my laundry to your store. I'm not above putting a clothes line strug from my car to your sidewalk. (I lost my temper...again , I really am sorry God)
Me um..... How's about you giving me the cooperate office phone number for home depot?
Coporate office Man.. The problem is that they are waiting on parts from CHINA. Go back to the store and they will work out some sort of a deal with you.
So, I went back to the store and bought machines off of the floor. I don't think I got a good deal but I don't care anymore. The sales men were very nice as they had been all along. To be honest I don't even care about the dishwasher but I have to have the washing machine. I'm at my breaking point and I feel terrible about the whole thing.
It's a good thing that China likes us and will continue to ship us things forever.
(God please bless all of the people who make our things and please bless the Home Depot guys.)
Now I feel really bad- At least we have clothes.
