Fixed Grandmas roof, couldn't assemble rack

by jl333 on August 20, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

It's been a week of fixing stuff at Grandmas house, including fixing a roof. So imagine my frustration, when I took a simple stupid ass sliding rack out of the box and spent three hours 'trying' to assemble the darn thing. I never finished it, because right off the bat, the first step wasn't going together. Honestly, I think I got a pre-opened box with wrong parts, because they simply didn't fit. I told Grandma the product was a piece of shit and we returned it. Funny how I can fix a roof, but can't assemble a rack. Sigh.
