My rice mistake isn’t looking so bad now, is it? Shopping for furniture is a tricky experience. You spend time and brainpower deciding on the vibe that you want for your room, then search for the furniture to fit in with that vibe and your lifestyle. If the item you need is only available online then you can’t even try snuggling up in it first.
Still, you can always return it, right? So you hit the purchase button, maybe without checking that the dimensions you’ve seen are in millimeters and not centimeters? A smaller than expected package arrives and you find yourself squeezing your butt into a chair definitely made for someone still using a potty.
