Movers are those wonderful people who do the dirty work of packing for you. I hate packing almost as much as I hate unpacking so the fact that they do over half the work is a wonderful thing!
However the labels on these boxes are the worst thing I could’ve imagined. I opened a box that said shoes yesterday expecting to unpack my shoes. Well there was one shoe in the entire box and the rest was bedding and things like that. So explain to me why in the world the box said shoes? Ya I have no idea either!
I have another one. A box said closet miscellaneous, however there was no explanation of which closet, in what room. Now our old house had three different hallway closet, one in the kids room, and three in the master bedroom. So it was a mystery box that I avoided for about a week.
There are also half a dozen boxes that say books, well which room did they come from. Are they kids books? The books that were in the master bedroom or how about the ones from the living room? There’s not box checked to tell me where they came from so I get another round of open this box and let’s see where it really goes.
One more! There was a box that was labeled “papers.” So the night before I had an appointment with my daughter’s school to enroll her that was the first box I looked into for her paperwork. Well guess what that entire box is crafts with a few dozen sheets of color papers. My important paperwork file was in a box that was labeled boxes, literally it said boxes. That particular box had not one single box inside of it!
The movers were great they packed everything I asked them too. They were quick and efficient, they were polite and took care of our things. I really appreciated all of their work! Until I realized they labeled boxes half assed and really shitty.
So moral of the story. When the movers label your boxes. Don’t trust them!
