Not to mention the chemicals that go into all of that pressed 'pollution'.

Why would anybody pay retail for crap from China that they have to put together with a piece of paper and a website....that takes a 'special kind of stupid'.

There is a pride that goes along with putting together your own furniture. I'd rather it be the swedes then sam.

So instead of spending your day buying junk, you can hire someone to buy junk for you?

they should contact out 'assemblers' to put together the stuff at the home of the purchaser, maybe charged on an hourly basis or by the item.

So instead of driving to Chicago to pick up/deliver they can go to mid town. Then deliver to Nashville, Louisville, Tulsa or Indianapolis.
