Bought an "occasional" table from Habitat.

It's more of a coffee table - although I'm not going to make a habit of it. And it's tiny. A small dog could lift it. Yet the instructions say, "Plan to assemble the furniture as near as possible to the place you intend it to be used".


  1. Hi Douglas, just so you know the nearest possible location to the place where you're planning to use the table is the place where you're planning to use the table, so the instructions aren't leaving you with a great deal of wiggle-room here. In fact, they're crushing your autonomy. Assemble the table wherever the hell you please - subvert the hegemony!

    Also, I have Greek from 9.30am-2.30pm every weekday, which is why you keep getting my answering service.

  2. Suddenly everything becomes a lot clearer.
