The ugly picture above is of the mirror in the pink bathroom. We exposed one corner under the tacky old frame and found no clips. This is not what we wanted to see. I then came up with the genius idea to tape the entire mirror and hit it with a hammer. The reaction of friends and acquaintances to this idea was incredulousness and concern. We soon became convinced that if we attempted this feat, there would be the distinct possibility of receiving a Darwin Award.
So, I took my friend’s advice and called the company above on Tuesday. Explained my situation and that I was under a time constraint. I was promised a call back after being quoted a price. Here we are on Saturday – radio silence. Binswanger Glass is dead to me.
I then remembered that the same friend had introduced me to another glass guy who just replaced her windows. And I had his card. So I called him on Thursday. Told him my sad story. Was promised a call back. Nothing. Perry at Yet Another Glass Co., you are very close to being dead to me as well.
Of course, if either place calls me Monday morning and un-sticks that damn mirror, they will be back from the dead very quickly. But I’m a bit of a grudge holder, so I can’t promise that they’ll stay un-dead for very long. 😉
