Overpriced Desk Chairs

 

 

I went on this website for some deck chairs.


They had this nothing of a chair called the Harborside for almost $500. I was looking for 2 chairs, so that would’ve been a whooping $1,000 almost.

After a while on their web page, a chat box came up asking if I needed any help. 


It was funny because the guys name was Jake, as in the commercial, “Hi, this is Jake from State Farm!”


Anyway, I must’ve been annoyed at their ridiculous prices and I had this farce of a dialogue with Jake. 


Jake: Hello, We see you are checking out.  Can we help in any way?


Me: trying to download a 25% off coupon…can you assist?


Jake: We don’t have any coupons or discount codes. 


Me: Just overpriced then.  {smiley}


Me: Why do you charge so much for such cheap merchandise?


Jake: It’s grade A teak which is the highest quality grade you buy but go on.


Me: It’s a tree! Why should I pay $1000 for 2 small desk chairs.  There is plenty of tweak in the forest for free!


Me:  Can you explain?


Jake: *Teak. You’re more than welcome to grow your own forest and make these but you’ll have to move to a warmer climate. You can educate yourself better with our guide here [and he attached a link]. 


Me: Hmmm. Would you pay $1000 for thee little wooden chairs. 


Me: Also, I’m pretty educated.  TY


Jake: Yes, I have 4 on [my grandmother’s porch]


Me: You didn’t pay $2000 for 4 chairs for your grandmother’s porch.  NO WAY!  I bet you got a big employee discount. 


At which point, the chat box quickly bleeped off the screen!


Jake from State Farm…you didn’t really buy 4 chairs for your grandmother for $2000 did you???  😉

Cat Knob

So I just love this cat door knob. 

Carved in wood and a special tinge of African Egyptian art. 

Dark wood cat knob on light wood doors–looks warming and pretty classy. 

From the white glue in the background, it looks like it fallen off a few times, perhaps. 

But either way so cute–one of these on each on the French Doors. 

It’s a nice home decor and style–and the big cat eyes are so handsome. 😉
