Aww fine … I’m aching as I’m typing.
I finally managed to get my damn PC desk after 5 weeks … I got a refund from the mob which was supposed to be getting it in … and went to one of their fellow stores & got it that day
After following the instructions intently (left & right parts were labelled L & R) and about 3 hrs I finally managed to get the damn thing together … there must have been 100 damn screws & bolts … arrrrgh! And toward the end, after all your muscles are tired, they make you turn screws into metal poles … urgh!
Then to top it off … after it’s complete … the keyboard drawer is … ugh … round the wrong way … despite the labelling.
I guess chinese labellers don’t know L from R … “Flied Lice!”
So I had to undo 12 screws upside down while holding the entire drawer up …then I had to turn it around … and do them all up again while holding the damn drawer up.
After all that, I had to move my 2xPC’s, UPS & all the other junk to the new desk …
The best part was moving my HUGE old desk which was 4 large planks of wood bolted together crudely … weighing 1/2 a ton (I’m not kidding) … out of the room, through the lounge, down the building corridor & down a set of stairs to the garage so we can get it picked up for disposal … urgh …
I’ve decided women are absolutely no help when moving heavy items …
Me:" Don’t let it go … it’ll slide down the stairs & crush me"
Sigot: "I’ve lost my grip"
Needless to say, after the thorough abuse through the ordeal … two days later … I’m still lurching … more than normal … due to aches, pains & sprained muscles in a general locale, or more to the point … every muscle is sprained.
