Television Tuesday….or not…


Urghhhh ok so every blue moon we update an item…you know..because we can…for a change instead of because we have to…so when this magical moment happens we get kinda excited…so it was to be the TV…

Okay ..so we had a great deal…Fozziedad picked it up..all the way from the city..so a decent trip…he got it home…the cats became over the moon at the size of this box…yes all was joyous…until we went to set it up…the screen was half and half..somethings not right…ok then a ghosting from the side..here we go..
A phonecall later and a pic sent and it was agreed we had the LEMON…these peeps were great..they had no problems and a replacement would be sent to us on Monday….the giant over sized MACK truck strength brackets were already in the brickwall..ready to roll..the girls got shirty because the box was promptly repacked and removed…
Yesterday a phone call..the truck could not deliver until today..ok….bummer…

So today it arrived…ta da…..after doing the GFC all day Fozziedad laid the last paling in the fence gate…smiled and headed inside..he fed the guys and gals..i helped him get the tv on the brackets..i headed in to make dinner..he says….
“I can’t believe this…” never a good statement..i start eyeing the box that the cats are now investigating…
‘Come look at this..”
Yep sure enough a line down the side..another dud!!
So may I present TV fun part two AKA not a happy camper..
This time Fozziedad said they can replace it and set it up while here…meanwhile the girls are shirty again as another box treat has been removed from them…..

  1. WOW – what a nice huge paperweight on the wall – snorts. It’s going to be the bomb when it works. Daddy is slightly jealous – he wants a H.U.G.E. one for the living room. Can’t wait to see yours up and working. WOW! XOXO – Bacon

  2. So sorry there was a problem! Seems like today nothing is made with quality anymore. P.S. We were instructed to keep the box the TV came in, in case something happened…. LSS, we had to send the TV back to the manufacturer in the box it came it. Be sure to check when you finally get a TV that works! Ellie

  3. The pains of getting new stuff. My dad wants a bigger tv too.
    Sorry you got lemons and not the food channel.
    One time we had no reception and found out later the wire in the wall was
    not hooked up to the t v. Hope you can watch football soon or cooking.

  4. oh that’s bad! I hope you will get one what works… maybe it’s one you have to feed with movies and shows firs before you can watch it? Paws are crossed for a wonderful tv-session for you. I remember as we tried to place the tv on the wall… first we had problems, because mom is smaller than dad and she was not able to lift the beast in the same height . As dad hold it alone and she only had to maneuvre it in the brackets, the phone ringed and mom disappeared… while leaving behind a speechless dad…

    • BWAHAHAH yes I am now lop sided due to the height difference…not to mention the cats getting all shirty with me hahaah ..I think that your dad was maybe speechless because otherwise the swear words would be out! :):)

  7. Up here we changed over from perfectly good analog to digital t.v. May 2013. So for the 1st. time ever, I went out and bought a new t.v. Set it up…no reception out this way. So it propped with a cloth over it as another useless ornament for 14 months when someone told me I could apply for satellite T.v. So I finally had an installer set it up. It cost a heap, but for the last month I have had T.V. again.
    I must admit it is a bit boring, but o.k. for watching some things.
    Funny cats! “You can keep the T.V….Just give us the box!”

    Just thinks of all the FABulous stuffs you’ll be able to watch once you gets a good one…paws crossed that the third time really IS the charm, huh?! Ma LOVES her huge TV! We don’t have the snazzy brackets like you do, we just have it attached to a TV stand with earthquake putty (Thank Dog! after this weekend, that was a good call! ☺) Butt at least the peeps are delivering it TO you, and you don’t have to drive to get yet another one…maybe they should send TWO in the truck just in case….

  10. OMD! What are the chances!? Mom had to laugh though because she and dada got a new tv a couple of years ago and well, anything tech or gadget related turns into a MAJOR ordeal in our home because dada insists on doing weeks of research and then mom has to sit through various mini-presentation on the pros and cons of this and that make, when all she wants to say is “buy xyz and let me know when it is up and running” *BOL*
