Guy sleeps whilst I put up wardrobe!

Tuesday, February 1st, 2011

This happened to me yesterday and struck me as possibly one of the most bizzare things that has happened to me in seven years of building furniture in peoples homes.

I arrived to assemble a

as shown below:-

This is an absolutely beautiful wardrobe and a delight to put together.

Anyhow I arrived at the address, did the usual hello’s and where you want the wardrobe to go. All the general chit chat that accompanies arriving in someone’s home and building rapport. So I was stood in the bedroom and about to start and the customer said to me.

“I was working last night and only got in an hour ago. I am going to sleep while you work.”

Nothing too unusual I thought and then he promptly got into the bed in the same room and fell asleep. Needless to say I was astonished. I simply got on with the job (what else could I do?) and and a couple of hours later woke him up and got paid.
