Epic Fail: Gazebo for sale $225.00

So I picked up an large octagonal gazebo for my back yard as an attempt to get some shade. Set the thing up (half day effort) and waited for the spouse to come home from work to decide where to place it and anchor it to the ground.

She comes home and thinks it is too big for the space and would prefer a square one....so I decide to take it apart in the morning......then we get hit with monster storms and it tips over and bends one of the shelves and bangs it up a bit.

Paid $400 - selling it for $225. You have to pick it up. Screens have never been out of the bag. Only been assembled for about 12 hours.

EPIC FAIL

You should know better than to think for yourself. I was broken of this kind of thinking years ago

Re: Epic Fail: Gazebo for sale $225.00

I should have known better - we live on ICWW so wind is probably too high for such a toy anyway.....crap! What a blunder.....gonna call it a pre-emptive senior moment.

Like the cage fighting idea - maybe my son can use it....he lives inland.
