AAAAARGH! (or the joys of online ordering)

So in late June, I ordered a nice table and chair set for the patio which goes well with everything we have. After some foul-ups with them not calling me to arrange delivery, I arranged for the delivery today of this from noon to five.

At 9 this morning, the delivery guy gets here. Uhm, okay, fine. So he dumps off one box, about 80 pounds. Erm... so I ask where the rest is, to which the reply was "That's all I have." I call their dispatch office to see if, maybe, there will be a package delivered at another time. "No. We have received one package which you just got delivered. You need to call the vendor."

...

So thankfully target.com lists a phone number. I call and confirm that, indeed, they sent only one package of chairs, but no table. Now they are going to resend the whole set which I will *again* have to arrange for delivery. And further, they only do this as a set, so I have to refuse the second set of chairs when get delivered just so I can get the table.

You could just sell the second set of chairs on ebay ... ? or would you get charged for them?

I think I would get charged for them. However, it's never bad to have too many chairs! =)
