Truth in advertising

I recently ordered new chairs for the dining nook of my apartment. When they arrived, I had to perform minimal assembly — attaching the wooden legs and adding some bolts under the seat for extra support.

Now, I’ve assembled a lot of furniture in my day. The packaging and instruction sheet typically leave a lot to be desired.

This one got it right.

The instructions were clear, concise and included an illustration for every step. Most importantly, the teeny tiny parts were clearly labeled and packaged together.

No searching through the box for tiny bags. No trying to match bolts to numbers or hard-to-read graphics.

Easy peasy.

So that promised ten-minute job?

It actually took ten minutes.  (Maybe less.)
