This is a question Little Victories II

I once got bumped up to first class in the 90 minute leg of a 16 hour flight. Tell us about your insignificant little triumphs and minor victories. (Driving a Honda Accord doesn't count).

We ordered new kitchen
Kitchen called "Solid Oak" but when it arrived clearly wasn't. I went back to the store and showed them my quotes that said solid oak only to be told that "Solid Oak" is just the name for the kitchen. I was asked "You wouldn't expect the white ivory kitchen to be actual ivory would you?" I told them that I would if it were called solid ivory, that solid oak was what we wanted and requested and to come and take the kitchen back as we didn't want it. I asked them how they could get away with it and was quite brazenly told that there was a disclaimer in the catalogue. After a couple of calls to Citizens Advice they buckled and offered to replace the side panels, doors, plinths etc with the solid oak at no extra cost. I asked if they would collect the old stuff and they replied that anything we don't unpack we can return for a refund. So I did. We ended up with a solid oak kitchen for half the price of a shitty laminate one.

TLDR: Solid Oak

Did your wife then give you 50p so you could buy yourself some sweets?

No actually it was a quid.

At least they didn't try the hoary old legal wheeze
of claiming that for the price you paid for it, you should have known it was a shitty laminate kitchen and not a solid oak one.

They touched on that. I mentioned that I had three quotes all that said Solid Oak as I had repeatedly asked for.
I knew it was cheap but I'd never bought a kitchen before so didn't realise just how much more the real wood was.
