Weary

In short, Accent Movers in Ft Worth sucks. A whole lot.
Friday night was Thrill Kill Kult. And that was good. But Ninsi and I had to get up and about late Saturday morning and go to Khuul's house to help them move. Our plan was not to really help them move, so much as it was to pay for the movers that would be doing most of the work. The movers were to show up sometime between 2-4 and take all the big stuff to the new house. We went over early to make sure everything was ready to go.

It wasn't. But that was okay, because at 2 pm, the moving company called me and said they got a late start that day and would not be able to make it until 5 pm. Okay, so that gave us a couple more hours to get stuff ready. We also started loading up Reptile's Hummer and Khuul's truck with stuff that we had really expected the movers to take, but since we had nothing to do but wait, we kept working.

At 5 o'clock, no one showed up. At 6:30, we left the house with our load(s) since we had not heard from the movers, and none of the numbers I had for them were being answered. Needless to say, I was rather pissed. They did finally call at 8 pm, long after we had unloaded the stuff at the new house and assembled the bunk beds. I had to reschedule them for Sunday at 1.

Given the option, I would have told them to take a flying fuck, but I was sure I would be unable to get movers on Sunday, otherwise. Ninsi and I had to cancel the plans we had for Saturday night since we were still helping with the move. By the time we finally got home, I was in no mood to do anything. So we played some Lego Star Wars.

Sunday, we went over to the house again to wait for the movers. And even though they called to verify the time, they were still a half hour late in arriving. And wanted me to pay them in cash (which I refused to do since I had been told they took debit). Everyone else loaded up more boxes and went to the new house while Ninsi and I stayed and made sure the movers got all the big stuff. Two hours after they arrived, they finished loading the truck. I was hoping the whole move wouldnt take that long. In total, the move time was 3.5 hours. And most of my Sunday was shot.

The weekend was not a waste, as we were able to get Khuul moved, and that was the main thing. But it just took way to much effort on my part. By the time finished mowing the lawn yesterday, I was completely beat. I did call the moving company today at lunch and complained about the whole thing. The girl that answered the phone was very apologetic, but that really doesnt help a whole lot.

I briefly debating 'googlebombing' Accent Movers to a suck page. But that is more effort than they deserve from me.
