– an investigation of the human condition

What Happened to Common Sense? Part Two.

As most of you remember, I made a post a couple of weeks ago about a couple who had a series of unfortunate events occur to them – click here to read it if you haven’t already, before reading on.

After a couple of weeks off work, it wasn’t until yesterday that I’ve been able to confirm the details of what happened. So, here’s the update and some clarifications to the events that unfolded.

I previously stated that the couple came back into the store the following week to refund the delivery fee and take it home themselves. Well, after further investigation, it appears a couple did return to the store…. but rather than being the wife and her husband as I was previously led to believe, it was actually the wife and her brother (or brother-in-law). The story makes a little bit more sense now in that the wife’s reasoning for taking the TV and refunding the $60 delivery fee was so that it could be a surprise for her husband, who although knew the TV had been bought, was expecting its delivery on Monday/Tuesday. He was at work that day, and she wished to treat him to a happy surprise, finding his new TV all set up and ready for use upon returning from work. Her decision was also propelled by the fact that they were apparently holding a dinner-party that night too.

I’ve heard from the managers and staff that were working on the Saturday when she returned to the store, that she was hysterical – “she was on the floor crying, as if she had just lost a child”. I really don’t blame her. She asked for a replacement, but was obviously let down when she was informed that things like that can’t be done.

The icing on the cake here, was that she returned the next day to ask if anyone had returned her missing stolen Sony LCD TV.

Imagine her having to answer to her husband that night, when he asks what she got up to during the day while he was at work….!? I smell fireworks…. and not the good kind 😦 I really do hope that things pick up for these guys soon.

    *gah* I AM screwed for the HSC, especially considering King Lear essay is STILL nowhere near done.

    How’d you go?

    P.S. Must say, you would’ve been pretty brave to blog throughout Year 12.
