Finding the Right Mattress for the Beginning of a New Life
When my wife and I were first married, we did not have much by way of furniture and appliances. We did not get many of these things at our reception either, which is strange when you think about it, but most of our gifts were in the form of gift certificates and cash. We did not register anywhere, so I guess that was the easiest way for people to express their congratulations. In any case, the thing that was most clearly lacking when we got married was a bed. We did not have one, and while we had an apartment, we were relegated to the floor for the first week we lived there. It was not bad really, just another fond memory from the beginning of our lives together.
I believe that fortune smiled upon us, because as soon as our post office box was registered, we received an advertizement for a local bed and bath company with a major sale on mattresses and bedding. When we walked in to the store, we had the privilege of meeting directly with the owner.
He asked us how we found out about the sale, and we told him that it was due to the flier in our post office box. He was overjoyed to know that his advertizing was working and gave us additional care and attention. We picked out the mattress that we wanted and had it delivered that afternoon. A few days later, we picked up the bed frame to go with it, and we have had a nice bed ever since.
