MiscStupidRoots’ magical product review

So what we have here is a review of product. Allow me to summarize:

An exercise in patience and thinking outside the box. Instructions were relatively straightforward, however it could have been easier. Someone in Quality Control was smoking crack with the one I received, as several sections were too long to fit properly, and thus out came the saw. Assemble, pull apart. Saw, reassemble. This was a total first, and it makes me seriously reconsider buying anything else from this particular manufacturer. I mean seriously. I spending a hundred bucks, and several hours of my day off, the least I can get is parts that assemble per the goddamn instructions. On more than one occasion, I had the rather insane feeling of a monkey trying to hump a football. Fortunately, they didn’t skimp on the parts. About 3 and a half hours after looking it for the first time, we had a…credenza.

hiking TV on top, not too bad. Cramming electronics in, not bad. Moving the whole assembly? Pain in the ass. Okay, pain in the lower back. Wonderwife was only too pleased to inform me that I’m not in my early 20’s, and there were more than a couple hints that I should start thinking about some sort of exercise regimen beyond typing and lifting a coffee cup.

There may be New Years’ Resolutions coming to this space. But first, I’m going to sit with a heat pad on my back and watch Santa fly by.
