Window Blind Boo-Boo -- or -- Way To Go, Home Depot

My wife got a venetian blind at the Home Depot just recently, for the last of our six basement windows that's been without a blind for far too long.

The blind was a ready-made 36" wide one. It needed to be 1 1/4" narrower than that, and the Home depot will cut them down for you on the spot. That's a nice service -- it gets you a blind that fits for considerably less money than a custom-made blind.

They had the correct dimension in mind, and wrote it on the box along with "No Return", like so.

Fair enough. Why would I want to return a blind that's been cut to fit our window perfectly?

Possibly because they goofed by over an inch.

We'll see how this plays out. I'll let you know.

They replaced the blind -- no hassle. Now I'm out of excuses.
I have to install the thing.
