Completely unrelated, maybe, but I thought I'd get in a whine. Wife and I bought a dinig room table. The folks at some unmentionable furniture store (but I think the lady's name was Ashley, something like that...smirk) said "three to five weeks" for delivery. It actually took over three months. My wife was livid, marched in and demanded a table of any description to use until ours arrived. It worked.
