Oh man! What a comedy of errors, or it would be if it were even remotely funny. I can imagine what you must have been thinking after getting the second "wrong part" tale: "How can there be more than one kind of lock handle? Aren't they all identical? It's either a lock handle or it's something else entirely. What part did they send for heaven's sake? A manhole cover? A '53 Packard?"
I know I'd have been fuming, and I assume you were/are too. I complement you on keeping your cool while describing it. Sign of a good man.
It's never too late to have a happy childhood!
