Last night I bought a little shoe cabinet that also has shelves on the side. It was a bargain at the special price of 400 baht ($14.28 Australian) reduced from 699 baht ($25 Aus). So tonight I was planning to quickly knock it together after getting home from the park and then posting a few blogs and then hitting the sack and getting a good 8 hours sleep, but as usual things don’t always go to plan.
I have put all of our furniture together myself except for our bed. When I bought the bedroom package they delivered it all put together but when I seen the wardrobe cabinet and the terrible job they had done putting it together I told them to not unload it and bring me the kit form and I would do it myself. They looked at me like I was insane. I found screws that had been put in crooked and had broken through some of the joins and they hadn’t put in the little wooden toggles or used any glue. So I just said no thank you.
My self assembled stuff.
These 2 caused many frustrating moments
Noot's sister Ben. No help at all. Watched dreaded Thai TV.
I looked at a new house for sale a few months back and I was shocked to see the sub standard work. The massive gaps around windows and frames and doors, floor tiles were uneven all throughout the house and on and on. There is no way a real builder could have built this house.
Anyway I put my little shoe cabinet together in around an hour and it was very simple to do. The clothes wardrobe was a real test of patience and nerves and a few times I thought I was stupid taking the job on by myself but after 2 hours plus that was also finished and I was happy knowing it wouldn’t fall apart.
Most of the things I put together weren’t hard to do and only took a little planning before starting to assemble them. So now I am here late again trying to get posts finished for my blogs and also an internet connection that is really trying my patience as well.
For some reason every night around 9pm the internet starts dropping out. I have know idea why and all through the day there isn’t a problem at all. On Saturday and Sunday I have a great connection usually but come 9pm it goes crazy. I rang my ISP provider and I still haven’t had a technician call me to make an appointment. This is one thing that really pisses me off here in Ubon is really bad customer service by nearly all companies. It really is disgraceful here in Ubon and this is probably because Thai people never complain and just say ‘Mai Pen Rai’ never mind.
