As part of our kitchen project we are getting a beautiful new sink. It’s a farmhouse style in coal black. It’s stunning and we picked our counter colors, faucet and handles to coordinate with it.
It was ordered in July but never came in. Lots of “expected dates” but none worked out. Our contractor finally called the manufacturer in early December. The color we selected is out of inventory and they won’t start manufacturing “that color” until the new year. In the middle of the project I had to revisit my sink selection which was the showpiece of the new kitchen.
After much bellyaching (on my part) I settled for something that would work. There were only two in the US. (This is not a truly unusual sink. I had something similar in my old house.) One was in Florida and one in California. I live in Pennsylvania. Florida is closer.
Some geographically-challenged numbnuts decided to send us the one from California. I’m not sure if they used the Pony Express or just a team of oxen. I only know that it was too heavy for carrier pigeons. It arrived in Texas two weeks later. Then it got lost. No one knows where it is. There is no tracking for Pony Express or oxen. (Can you believe that in this age of tracking everything?)
I should have bought it from Jeff Bezos (of Amazon) because there would have been a chance of actually getting it.
After a week of not knowing where it was I did order from Jeff. I was able to get the exact color I wanted. Delivery was a week out (Tuesday, Dec. 28) which included the Christmas holidays. I’ve been having good luck with Amazon deliveries so I was hopeful. Sunday night at 9 p.m. I got an email that it was shipped. Yay! The beloved husband got up on Monday morning at 6:30 a.m. and it was sitting on my front porch a full day ahead of schedule. Super yay! If I had bought this from Amazon from the beginning, my kitchen would be done.
As for the traveling sink, I wish it well on its journey.
