Moving Mishaps

So this past Saturday, I had a 9:00 a.m. appointment with a relatively inexpensive moving company. I'd never used them before and though I'd give them a shot. Huge mistake. Hours ticked by--the dispatcher kept pushing my appointment back later and later...I was a wreck all day--the power was scheduled to be turned off at my old apartment the next day...The movers finally showed at 10:00 p.m. While they shrink-wrapped all my furniture, and everything, save for one dish, arrived in one piece, they didn't get me to my new place in Bay Ridge until 1:00 a.m. How exhausting! As a result, I had a reschedule my installation appointment with Spectrum, but everything worked out in the end and I'm getting to know and love Bay Ridge!
