A Treatise on Deliveries
BR: "When Ah buy furniture, Ah always have it delivered. You know wye? Because if something's wrong with it, it's their responsibility. We done bought this recliner one time, and they delivered it, and Ah sat down in that thing the first time and 'whoooph' [Editor's Note: Jesus Christ, I wish I had the sound effect that came through the cube wall], it broke. So Ah called them up and told the lady what happened and she said, 'You musta broke it when you delivered it.' Ah said, 'Ah did?' She said, 'Yeah, you musta cracked it.' Ah said, 'That ain't possible, cuz Ah didn't touch it. Yer people delivered it. So it musta been them that broke it.' She got all quiet cuz she had backed herself into a corner with that comment. Hah! Needless to say, two days later they brought me out a new recliner, at no charge."
