Well, this thread clearly got smothered by CaryF's need to tell me what I overlooked, failed to do, and that I lack common sense.
So, now venting...
CaryF I don't know why you like to police this website, but please, think more about what you are doing here and why you post as you do. All your responses to my posts seem to reflect some need on your part to show your superiority over me. I'm not your mother/father/sister/brother/husband/wife/son/daughter/neighbor/teacher/student/doctor/patient/friend/enemy/dog/cat.
I'm just a stranger to you. What I do has no bearing on your life. To you, I should be nothing. So if you again feel compelled to attack me, just don't. It may give you an ego rush, but it sullies this website by sending the message to all who read your responses -- not just me but all who come to this site for help -- that instead of getting help, being accepted and welcomed -- you might end up just getting attacked. Admins -- please bear this in mind. This is not the first time with CaryF.
1) I don't care about getting a refund for my current bed. I'm not going to spend my time finding the company's contact information, filing a request, documenting the problem, fighting for a refund, etc..
It should be "common sense" that THAT wouldn't address my need. I'm not looking for economic justice. This is not a post seeking advice for how to get a refund. All I wanted was some suggestions for a comfortable and lasting bed. Isn't it common sense that I would seek advice from others in Chronic Pain -- for they have greater stakes when buying a bed.
2) While I appreciate the suggestion to consult with the "hotel" where I stayed, a reasonable suggestions at that, I wasn't in a hotel, and have no clear route to finding the purchasing agent in Canada who bought the bed for the corporate apartment. While it would make some sense for me to pursue this route anyhow, I was told that the bed was bought earlier this year, and so while the model would be a potential candidate, I can't be sure that it would really last (my prior memory-foam bed didn't). Hence, would it not be "common sense" to still ask people on this board, for some might have had their bed for years and thus could give me information not only about comfort but also about longevity.
CaryF: Your challenge of my "common sense" turned what should have been a simple inquiry into an attack on me, on my supposed lack of "common sense." Yet, consider your own lack of common sense for thinking it appropriate to turn this into an attack on me. So, maybe in the future, give people the benefit of the doubt -- that when they post a question, it isn't a consequence of their lacking common sense.
I just wanted some simple help with bed recommendations.
