The other day I was at Target and thought,

We need to get organized.  And a bulletin board in the kitchen is the answer to all my problems.

So I bought the bulletin board/white erase board.  And I’m paying attention to marketing a lot more these days and noticed it was made by the “Board Dudes”.  The packaging had a note from The Board Dudes hoping that I enjoy my new board.  I honestly appreciated their kind words.  I’m such a sucker.

I got home and was very eager to get my bulletin board up and running.

Let’s see… I just need to screw these little things in, nail these to the wall, and hang it up.  I guess the only question is horizontal or vertical, huh?  This is going to be cake.

Famous last words.

I sat for a good hour trying to screw these tiny little screws into this very hard wood.  It didn’t work.  This board was crap.

And I wanted to let the retarded Board Dudes know about it.

But ya know what?!?  The Board Dudes have up and left.  No website.  No email.  No telephone.

So I’m high and dry with an unscrewable board and a note “hoping you enjoy your board” from the Lame-o Board Dorks.

I let Mark know,

I’m taking the board back.  I can’t get the screws in.

And he said,

Don’t take them back.  I’ll take care of it

And I said,

No, I don’t think you know how hard it is to screw in.  It’s kinda like impossible.

And he was all,

Marie, I’ve got it.  Don’t take it back yet.

And I ended with,

So are you saying you can screw anything?

And then I blogged it.

You’re welcome.

    Oh, Marie… How I love you… 🙂

    Maybe an electric drill would do it? Thomas has one and it has this attachment that screws in screws for you. (That sentence sounds retarded.) Anyway, maybe you could try that?

    Yes, my friends and I went on the cruise together. There were 3 couples including me and Thomas. The other 2 girls are pregnant. Ugh! I couldn’t escape them! 😉 just kidding. We had a great time and neither of them where whiny. They were really troopers and didn’t really play the pregnant card. So I was happy!!

    Yes, the watermelon roses were pretty much amazing. It was really cool to watch them carve it out.

    You got to watch them carve it out, too? How cool.

    And Mark did use an electric drill, and it worked brilliantly. So now I’m one step closer to having order in the kitchen.

    Ha! Attack of the Pregnant Friends! I hope and pray that that isn’t contaigous 😀
