The topic: But it’s not what I ordered


I ordered a bunch of stuff from lakeside.com earlier this month.  One of the things I ordered, well three of the things, were new sheets. They had a king size fleece sheet set for under thirty dollars, which is a really good price.  I ordered one set of each color, blue, sage and burgandy. 

Imagine my surprise when I opened the box earlier this week to find that there were only two sets of sheets, the sage and the burgandy (burgandy my butt, these sheets are red).  No blue. But there was this other sage thing.  It was a blanket.  I check it out online, it cost three dollars more than the sheet sets.  Not enough to make a fuss about.  I take it out of the package and put it on the bed.  Yeesh, it doesn’t fit properly, no matter how I put it on.  Probably because of the footboard.  Stuff doesn’t hang down.

Then I get the bright idea to see if it would fit the sofa in the family room.  It will.  I washed it.  I dried it.  I put it on the sofa.  I like it.  I like it a lot more than the sheet that was on there before.

So, I go over to the lakeside website again, order the double/queen blanket for the loveseat and I re-order my blue blankets. 

The cats like it, too.
