Some Homegoods Action

**UPDATE** Yall I am so ticked off I cant contain my tears. They sold my table and the one they told me they had in the back that I went for at 10am was never there to begin with. They just thought it was one there. So now I am left with nothing but a damn busted table. I was upset initially this morning, but got over it, and was okay with spending $200 on the new table because I realllllly loved it. I asked the manager yesterday to place it on hold for me.."Nope, my district manager is coming today"...What the hell??? I called every Homegoods in my area and they all said their hold policy is end of day, which would have worked because I went when the store opened today. So I have called the district manager who further ticked me off, and now on to the regional manager. I spend TO MUCH MONEY to get a flipped off response from anyone within that store, and a condescending attitude from a manager who has no sense of the word customer service. In these strenuous economic times all a business really has is their customer service because consumers can go anywhere they want. I am there EVERYDAY that I work, and if I have to be pissed because of their actions, then someone is going to be pissed there because of their actions. If you just read this and asked yourself what is she mad at? I WANTED THE TABLE, and my history as a customer with them should have allowed them to hold it for me because they know they are going to get their money. Now I dont have it and I wanted it. So my husband, Mr. Nice man...says..."Well Babe, something like this you have no control over, you will have a stress attack..its going to be okay.." What doesnt he get?
Look what I found! I want I want I want! I shall get today.

THIS ONE (below) IS FROM HORCHOW ON SALE FOR $600, and not that big of a difference from the one I am getting huh?


Yall know I have a love for mirrored furniture, so that means my old table (see below) will have to go back because I dont need 2. I would like this to go in the room with my sofa once its back. What do yall think? Plus the new one is only $50 dollars more, and this one was $149


Also they had this..it is a dresser on clearance for $210 because of the two cracks in the mirror. Not that bad in my opinion...I had thoughts, trust me.

Do you already have that $149 table? I really like that one the best.

Yes I do and I broke it this morning putting it in my car. The glass broke on the drawers. I could have cried! But instead I CURSED something terrible! Just being honest!

OK..I just got back from Homegoods. I am so ticked I cant help it. The console is gone, and the one they told me they had in the back was never there. So lets just say they all got a little bit of attitude from me. I now have NOTHING...the original piece is broken, and the piece I was expecting to buy is in LALA land. Homegoods can kick rocks for this. Because had I not been told they had another one, I would not have tried to load mine in the car to return it. This whole situation is just bad. But everyone took my number so we shall see.
