So you want to spend a Sunday afternoon, on the day before Christmas, with two double shots of Knob Creek, a roast beef sandwich, a little TV and a nap but the Christmas present your wife wants is Pottery Barn cubby shelves that require assembly:
1. It doesn't mean that she doesn't love you;
2. Read the so-called "instructions" all you want but you're still going to do the job by trial and error;
3. Don't use your tools, use the tools they provide and still use only girl-strength because when you hear that cracking sound as you're torquing down on that blind bolt it's too late;
4. Stuff made in Vietnam is much superior in material, workmanship and ease of assembly to stuff made in Thailand.
