I'm pretty good at putting stuff together as well, but I prefer the good old days when they delivered it in one piece. If I wanted to put furnature together, I just assume build the darn thing myself with real wood ;-)

I work hard all week. When I get some time off the last thing I want to do is assemble a cabinet. It would help the economy if these companies hired some assemblers.

If I'm not mistaken, Walmart offers (begrudgingly) to assemble ~ but you still have to cart it off.

I work hard all week, too ~ but even the most complicated of tasks/murdering of closets is welcome on the weekends!

My job is very physical. Too much stress for one my age. No way I can find joy in working on the weekend.

My job is mentally draining ~ that's why I don't mind torturing a poor, helpless piece of particleboard on my day off.

I feel a shopping trip coming on.....hmmmmm.....

This thread was such a delight I've just read it through again. Perhaps some newcomers will want to add to it as a diversion from the political threads.

ROTFLMAO!!!!

So, my Polish uncle, who can build/fix darn near anything (he built his own house from the foundation up) goes to Home Depot and buys himself a new stand for his table saw. It comes in a brown corrugated box with no picture. He pulls all of the parts out of the box then fishes down to the bottom of the box for the instructions...which are in Chinese, again no pictures. He looks at me, as I've been watching this whole process, and says, "What the f*ck am I supposed to do with this?"
I take the instructions out of his hand, examine the page for a moment and reply, "I'm pretty sure I know what this says."
"Oh yeah? What's it say?"
"It says, 'Good luck, Polack.'"

@TerryDoolittle,
As I have oft lamented, I miss the days when your purchases came preassembled. The time and headaches saved are worth far more than the extra charge for the service.
