OK….so DW finally showed up last evening only to confirm that plan A, clearly, was not going to work. Should have skipped plan A and went straight to plan B. Plan B it will have to be. The wind, however, is out of my sales…..with scratched and peeling decals already. Seriously. Can things never go right the first time?! Apparently NOT. Sick feeling in my stomach has subsided. There’s no ‘FOR SALE’ sign on the cart (yet) and I am back to being excited (except, of course, did I mention the scratched and peeling decals???) Oh, the saga continues. I’m sure there will be more to this story before the summer is out…and, it hasn’t even started yet. Yikes. I may be in trouble.
SO, IT’S HERE…. April 26, 2012
and my inital excitement has been replaced with horror!! The new, shiny ice cream cart I’ve been looking so forward to getting has been sitting pretty on the front step of the store all afternoon. People walking by admiring it. Even one mother and son came in to buy ice cream! It’s past closing time and I cannot get it through the front door!!! OMG. What an ordeal. My lovely decals now scratched. I’m inside typing and looking out at “IT” on the front step. Waiting for DW to show up so we can try to get it in to safety. It’s an awkward thing on three wheels. Can’t imagine what trying to bring the bike version in, would have been like. It’s heavy. I just made it to the curb as it rolled off the step at one point heading towards the side of a van. I do not know how this is going to end. It may not be good. It may be for sale tomorrow. I may have bitten off more than I can chew (or, in this case, more than will fit in the door). Honestly, the measurements seemed to be OK. I think it’s the *&^%$ nuts on the wheels that stick out toooooo far.
Will update as the situation changes. And, hopefully, it changes!!
I feel sick.
