Boss send a message that I need to bring my laptop and USB drive. I couldn't find my old one so I went to purchase a new one instead. We're still in lockdown so non essential stores aren't open. But mobile phone stores are open and they do have USB drives. I didn't have much choice here. I found a USB drive, 32GB. It's a bit overpriced but I still bought that one. I also need a new work pants. Like I said, it's lockdown. The clothing stores aren't open for business. However, we have a retail store that also sell clothes. The section was closed but I asked the salesgirl whether I could go in. I did go in, search for my size but couldn't find any. I guess I better look at online shop. But buying clothes from online shop is really annoying. I could get a wrong size. Not the store's fault, it's mine. I'm bad at things like that. I need coffee.

I always get confused over size when I buy clothes online. It's a bit tricky. I prefer buying it from physical stores but not done that since the pandemic.

That's my problem too. I even use the measuring tape but still got a wrong size.

@prinzcy And then it's added pain to ask for return and refund. Though they might do it hassles free, I still feel to be added burden.

I don’t like buying clothes online. I need to feel the fabric, look at workmanship, and try things on. So crummy shopping during the pandemic.

@prinzcy Clothes can be tricky to buy online. Look for a site that has measurements to go by. That should help you get the right size.

You are right, buying shoes and clothing online is a pain, most of the time they have wrong sizes.

That's true. Most of the time I didn't get the size that I wanted. Refund or change is annoying too.

@prinzcy In my opinion they paste the label of the size you asked, no matter what they have in stock. I never got the right that fitted me perfectly.

You should have slipped through that door to visit for a bit... I'm a bit of a nut when it comes to USB drives. I've got a half dozen or so still in their packaging and another 15 or so (from 32 GB up to 1 TB) that are hanging on a chain but are still new. (I don't know why I buy them... when I see them on sale, I buy several at a time. Once in a while Pretty will ask for one but that's all that get used. *shrug*) New clothing, I can't help you with... I hope you enjoyed your coffee.

Are you trying to have a USB drives collection? I'll figure out something about the clothing. Maybe I'll get lucky this time. Thanks! Coffee is good. I'm bring coffee to work tomorrow. I think I might need it.

@prinzcy I have a USB drive collection. Just not sure why I have it. I also have two of the 4 TB drives like this one. (This one is plugged into my laptop and holds movies and pictures. It's not even half full yet.) Yes, take a large thermos of coffee. You might need it. 4 TB drive. Photo is mine.

I do not buy clothes online because they may be a really poor quality and I would not be happy.

I would usually get a wrong size despite trying to measure for one correctly.

Hope this works out and you can find your pants! I can relate to needing a cup of coffee!

Usually clothes that come for me that I bought online fit, but on occasion they're too small.

Their measurement somehow is not accurate to the tape I have at home too.

yes you are right, I always worry when buying pants in online stores because sometimes they don't fit our size.

Buying clothes online could be quite risky but they do take back if they do not fit you in some cases.

Glad you were able to find a USB drive but having stores clothes and not being able to shop like you need too has to be hard. Things here are opening up again so it's getting easier to go back to shopping.

Work pants should be quite elastic, hopefully getting the wrong size is going to be harder. I usually get the size right when buying online, as I make sure they have a chart with all the measurements, but then I might not like the way the dress suits me.

I would usually either get too large or too small.
