    I got this great deal on fuzzy slipper/boots, so I got a pair for me and one for my 18 yr old DD. I didn't wrap mine - just wore them 1st thing Xmas morning. DD comments on how nice they are, so I tell her to open "that one", so she could wear hers too. She opens, and is happy to see them. Tries them on...one is a size 7 1/2, the other a 9...BOTH RIGHT FEET! I was shooting for size 8 - that's what it said on the box. At the check-out, she took the boots out of the box and "looked" at them, so I erroneously figured she had checked to be sure they were the same size. What a disappointment (more for me, because I wanted her to have fuzzy slipper boots for Xmas day).
    Well, all has been exchanged and made right. Apparently the store had a new shoe person there that wasn't keeping up with all the switching around that takes place during the shopping frenzy. I know, my bad for not checking myself... [​IMG]
    Hope everyone is having a good holiday season! [​IMG]

    I love my (fake) suede and fur boot slippers! Do your tops roll down? They make my husband laugh every time I where them.

    Boy, it must have made you really really mad to put two "f's" in your "snaffu" !! [​IMG]

    I am glad that you were able to exchange them for the same thing! This time of year, so many things get sold out! [​IMG] I bet your daughter is excited to have the corrected pair of fuzzy slippers!!! Nothing beats fuzzy footwear this time of year! [​IMG]

    Well if two left feet means someone is clumsy, you were telling her subconsciously how graceful she really is!
