Looks like a cool puzzle, right? It was a really tough one too. Unfortunately, it’s back in the box and probably going to get dumped in the trash or recycling. You can see why:
21 missing pieces
I knew it was going to be an issue since I was missing two edge pieces. I didn’t realize it would be this bad. Before you ask, I checked under all the furniture at the end and in the bag right away. Since I had made the edge as soon as I opened the puzzle, I knew it wasn’t me losing anything. Frustrating and disappointing even though it’s the first puzzle I’ve had like this since I started last year. Makes me think about a few things.
1. How do you handle inevitable disappointment?
2. Have you ever continued with a project that you know will be broken or faulty when you finish?
(Added frustration after scheduling this: I began another puzzle from the same company and it looks like I’ve got the same issue. 2 edge pieces are missing right out of the gate. I have 4 more puzzles from this company too. Hopefully, my email to them gets some kind of response because this is ridiculous.)
