Put Together My Own Desk? What Was I Thinking?
So I need to move my office, the station manager said that they needed to use my current office for someone else and asked if I would move, I said sure. Along with the move I needed a new desk, so I went to the store picked out a nice desk. Well, I brought the box the desk came in back to the office, I opened it up and there in front of me was a pile of parts like I have never seen!
The instruction manual looked like a phone book! I do consider myself a handy guy and jumped in with both feet, fast forward 4 hours later I had the desk 95 percent done! 4 hours! I finished the desk the next day after working on it for another hour, yep 5 hours to put a desk together, it wasn't really difficult but just lots of little parts to fit together.
I am not upset that it took that long to build, but you think they could have made it a little less time consuming. I do have a sense of pride being able to put it together on my own, I guess I would be really proud if I took the raw materials and made the desk myself, but that would have looked like who knows what! Then again I could have just taken a couple of milk crates and a piece of wood and used that!
