Got an email from Restoration Hardware yesterday informing me that a table I bought from them in 2014 is being recalled. Why would a simple table consisting of four legs and a top be recalled? Apparently the metal top contains lead. Fucking lead in the table I've been eating at for almost three years. So I called per their instructions, and they generously offered me store credit. "Are you serious?" was my immediate reply. "Well it was literally only that one model of table, so you could get a different table." "Not a chance I'm buying any of your poison." So the woman "asks her manager," which consisted of putting me on hold for like 12 to 15 seconds, and says that they can actually offer me a full refund. "That's it?" I asked. "Yes." So here's me today contacting lawyers. I'm going to be a huge, litigious dick about this.
