The Great Couch Caper Part II

We live in a college town in Northern Illinois. When we gave our love seat and chair away, it went to the daughter of a co-worker of my husband. She happened to be moving into town for school this year, and needed what we were giving away for free.

And then we suffered our Great Couch Caper and have been dealing with a glider, a recliner, and a wingback chair in our living room.

Apparently, the sweet young adult we gave our furniture to had an issue with an ex boyfriend stalker, and her Dad pulled the plug on her having her own place for the semester in order to ensure her safety, which I completely agree with.

Unfortunately, Bonehead hadn’t shared the couch caper with his co-worker in order to avoid making him feel bad for leaving us couchless. The last thing we wanted was to make him feel bad for our stupidity of not taking two seconds to pull out a measuring device.

They gave the love seat and chair to some other poor college student.

DOH!

So close! The chance for a comfy place to sit was so close and just slipped past you. That makes my stomach hurt a little bit, because I know firsthand what can happen to a couch in a college student's hands. Or the hands of said college student's friends!
