I was in IKEA last night with a friend, looking for these things I don’t know the name of, but I know they have them. They’re these cheap white plastic things you put on the floor, run your computer cables through them and snap them shut, so you don’t walk on them or roll your office chair over them. Since I ruin my cords on a regular basis, this would be a good idea.
But we couldn’t find them, and neither could the employees. I guess I’ll have to look in Staples or something.
Anyway, the place was crawling with Penn students selecting things for their dorm rooms/apartments. I said to my friend, “Imagine having so much money that you can pick what you want from IKEA, instead of what you can afford.”
My friend snickered and said, “Imagine being able to afford new stuff, instead of what people give you.”
