And the moral of the story is: Buy it whilst you can! PART II
Back to the coat story... I explained to my family about the whole situation with being too tired to order it at 4am on Tuesday I think it was and they all questioned why I didn't come and wake them up. To which I quite rightly stated that if I had woken them up at four in the morning to do some online shopping, they would NOT have been happy with me, but they insisted they would have been cool about it. The following night/morning, I did an all-nighter on a university assignment and at 2am, H&M's website claimed that it was in stock in a size 8. I quickly clicked 'Add to Bag' for the website to say: 'Sorry, our website is temporarily down, we're doing all we can to fix it'. Noooooooooooo. So my essay was put on hold for a good half an hour while I constantly refreshed the page. About 15 minutes later the website was working and a size 8 was still in stock, so I added it to my bag and went to the checkout. Now, I have to openly admit, I hardly EVER online shop as I find it far too much hassle and I much prefer shopping in person, so I'm quite new to the whole enter your card details so I had no choice but to go and wake someone in my family up. I went to my dad as he knows more about online shopping than anyone, so at around 2:30am we ordered my coat and it is due for delivery in around a week. I'm SO excited. It had better fit me now...
So the moral of THIS story is: Learn from your mistakes and make sure you don't make the same once twice!
