Freebird Posted January 23 Share #1 Posted January 23 So my wife decided that we needed a new recliner. Well, we DID need a new recliner. Mine was completely shot and it you reclined it too far back, it would fall over. We had been looking for a while because she has very determined tastes on what she likes. We had been to a few furniture stores and she couldn't find what she wanted. So....enter Facebook Marketplace. She found two almost brand new and, according to here, PERFECT matching recliners on Facebook. They were a bit far, only in Pennsylvania but the price was very good and she negotiated a great deal on them. So. yersteay, I had to go get them. Well, I can be in Pennsylvania in about an hour or so. No big deal. NO NO NO. They are not just across the PA line. They are in Shavertown, PA. Almost 4 hundred miles from. my house. So I left around 4 yesterday morning, drove the 800 mile round trip and got home at 4 yesterday afternoon. Add to all of that the fact that Mother Nature decided to drop a load of snow on me on my return trip. By the time I got back to about 120 miles from home, I was passing multiple cars in the ditches. Now the chairs are beautiful and were a fantastic deal but rest assured, we had a little talk when I finally made it back home and there are now some definite limits on how far away she can search on Facebook Marketplace. What made it worse was that I only slept about 2 hours the night before I left. Just one of those rare, for me, nights that I just couldn't sleep. 4 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
