Gripe/consumer warning

One of the nice things about having a blog is that I can complain and no one actually has to listen.

Last week, we decided to buy a used pool table. I contacted a mover, Game Room Gallery, in Burnsville, MN, based on a Craigslist ad, and the ad and over the phone price of $200 for the move was quoted. Today, the table was moved, after which the cheats at Game Room Gallery demanded $275, and said "$200 was the September price." Needless to say (if you know me), they got an earful, and left with $200.

In sum, (1) they didn't get any extra money, (2) they lost my return business forever, and (3) they are getting free publicity here for being the stupidest businesspeople alive. Nice business plan. Assholes.
