Has this been done already?
I'll start but I'm sure there are many stories sadder than mine.
I'm a graduate student in a university town and yesterday was moving out day for most of the school. I was walking home through the student ghetto and as I traversed the blocks of broken IKEA furniture, well-used mattresses, and assorted garbage (tsk tsk) I happened upon a lovely teak dresser with nicely sculpted handles and short tapered legs (rare here). It looked Danish but I didn't investigate. I've been lusting after just such a piece for some time but I have absolutely nowhere to put it here (I live in residence) and absolutely no way to transport it home to join my other meagre pieces.
OK, now, you: go ahead and complain.
