Did you ever have one of those moments when you say to yourself, “OH MY GOSH… I am such an idiot!” No? Well, how nice for you. Me, on the other hand… I’m not batting 1000…
Our mattress suddenly started sagging last year, to the point that I had a guy out from the furniture store to look at it for possible replacement. The indentations had to be over 1.5 ” deep (or more) before they would drag it away and give us a new one and ours were sunk in 1.25″. Darn, so close.
So, we’ve been sleeping on this totally uncomfortable mattress for over half a year. I was fixin’ to call that same mattress guy out when my husband decided to get on the floor and look at it Friday night. It kept sliding off of the box spring and he couldn’t figure out what the deal was.
After picking up the mattress he asked, “Amy, did you take the box spring off of the bed last year at some point?” Uh oh. “Why, yes, dear. I always take it off a couple of times a year so that I can vacuum under the bed. Why do you ask?” (Here’s the good part…) “Well, you put the box spring back on the frame upside down. That’s why our bed has been sagging and my back hurts every morning.”
Golly. Guess common sense isn’t so common after all.
I told him that we were $1,000 richer because we didn’t have to replace that silly mattress after all.
I’ll just go sit over here by myself and you can all talk about me now. It’s okay- I can take it.
