    create news headlines to grab people interested. You might add
    a video or a pic or two to grab readers interested about what you’ve got to say.

  • Dann habe ich noch erfahren, dass ich bei einer
    Zustellung, erstmal die Ware SELBST zu DHL bringen muss.
    Da wir die Ware für den Einzug unseres Sohnes benötigten, stornierte ich die
    Bestellung und wir besorgten uns die Ware anderweitig. 100 Prozent zufrieden, IKEA läuft wie ein Schweizer Uhrwerk.
    Das ist ein Muss u.Kult. Die Küche hätte dieses mal zwischen 07:
    00 und 14:00 geliefert werden sollen. Ich hatte einen Termin zwischen 07:
    00 und 14:00 bekommen und war ganz froh, als ich schon kurz nach 07:00 angerufen wurde, der Nachricht, dass die Lieferanten in naher Zukunft bei mir wären.
