A writing table for my adorable husband seemed like the perfect sanctuary for him at night. I wanted to situate it by the bay window in our bedroom so he can quietly surf with his laptop before he sleeps. My specification was Light walnut Flat finish. I paid the 50% downpayment of the list price which was 5,500 pesos at the Klapptstuhl, Inc. 3rd Level Market Market! Taguig City. The price is not bad at all. The quality of the furniture looked really fine even though I wasn’t sure if the wood is really hard wood. I could live with it though. My husband just needed a functional writing table in our bedroom.
Thirty days later, the writing table finally arrived.
I was horrified to see a glossy writing table. I demanded to know why they delivered a glossy table. The delivery man says “Madam, you said Not Flat”
“No I said Flat Finish. I find glossy finish so tacky. Let me look at the order form”
What do you know? The salesman noted my order like this:
Light Wall Not Flat Finish
My order should have been spelled as Light walnut Flat Finish NOT Light Wall Not Flat Finish. My head took a spin when I overlooked this tiny detail. I looked around at my bedroom to see if the glossy writing table blended well with the rest of the furniture.
Seeing that our bed headboard is of glossy finish, I relented . “Yes , it will do. But I will call your sales manager and advice him to teach his sales staff to SPELL properly”
