In with a bang, out with a whimper…

This the story of my shower from http://premier-bathrooms.com/showers/

The Refresh $14,995
The Inspire $11,995

Yes, that is the prices of these fabulous showers. So, this is probably why they do not give you any kind of estimate over the phone. Most people would probably hang up, and quickly. Now, this does include any unforseeable issues like bad green-board and clean-up etc. But, what if there are no unforeseeable issues? Same price? Guess so. But wait, you can finance. So, let’s pay triple the amount for a shower. Woot woot. Shit no, sorry. It’s a  shower for fuck’s sake and not even gold lined. Now maybe if it came with a hot towel boy…

So, my question, how the hell do people, crippled people and the elderly pay for these ‘high end’ showers. They most likely get ripped off and have to finance. Not many people have this kind of cash to just hand over.

Oh, but wait! If we ordered and signed within that day, 1,000.00 would be taken off. Well holy shit and slap my ass, then let’s do it!! NOT!!

So, needless to say, I was bummed. I cried for a bit, then got pissed at the highway robbery going on here. At 5pm, I took a Xanaflex and went to bed.

Now on to plan B. If that does not work then plan C, D, E etc. Whatever it takes.

We are going to go to Lowe’s and check out the shower enclosures. If we can find one without a seat or built in shelving in the back, we can get one like that. Then I found an awesome fold up teak handicapped shower chair that we can have installed along with some bars to help me in and out of the shower. Then get a new dual shower head with bar for the hand-held shower head that can slide up and down. It will not be as high tech, etc as the Premier Showers, but it will be just as good at a fraction of the cost.

So, my shower story continues. It will happen, just may take a bit longer than I want.

Life is good!

Blessings and Hope!
