When I moved into my current place, it came with a sofa. This thing is ancient, green, leather, and all out horrific. It’s like someone from the 70s designed something with a teenager from the early 80s. But it was comfortable originally. After many years of use, and abuse, the legs have come off – quite literally. Not to mention I’ve gotten tired of the color.
I decided to treat myself, and I went couch shopping! After much deliberation I found a good couch at a decent price, I measured it, and it was smaller than standard doors. Perfect. It would get in my place. It would be fine.
I craigslisted my old couch (free). And went to pick up the new one. HURRAY! We get it home, and that’s when trouble strikes.
It won’t go in the front door. Or the back door.
Or any window.
My house has smaller than standard doors.
Soooo anyone need a sofa?!
Right now, as the sofa will not fit in any of my house’s doors, it’s sat on my deck, under a tarp protected against the elements. I’ve put it on Craigslist. My only hope is to sell my new sofa, and to buy a new-new sofa. Right now, I’m using pillows for seats in my living room.
It’s been a learning experience. Mostly: never let me buy furniture.
