I've been saying chest of drawers wrong my whole life – but I’m not alone, loads of people made the mistake too | The Sun

A WOMAN has revealed how she has been saying chest of drawers wrong all her life.

It's not the first time someone has realised later on in life they've been doing or saying something incorrectly.

But Jade, from Bristol, UK, revealed she's been saying the phrase wrong for 23 years and has only recently been corrected.

Jade found out she was saying it wrong after her mum corrected her while she was hunting for furniture.

After moving into her own house, she began googling the furniture to find some for her new home – but it came up with few results.

She revealed on TikTok: "So, when I was 23, I moved into my first house with my partner.

"We were furnishing it and just looking around to see what we could find.

"But there was one item that I literally could not find anywhere.

"I was Googling it and a few things that were similar were coming up but just not what I was after. So I gave my mum a call.

“I say, ‘Mum, I'm looking for this’ and she was like, ‘okay, can you say that again?’ So I said it slower. And she just burst into laughter.”

Jade had been calling chest of drawers 'chester draws' for as long as she can remember.

“I'd never heard this before my entire life. For 23 years I've been calling chest of drawers, Chester drawers.

"Oh my gosh. And as soon as I Google chest of drawers, loads came up obviously," she adds.

But Jade wasn't alone in her mistake, as plenty of other people took to the comments to let her know that they used to do exactly the same thing.

"I was the same. You're not alone," one person commented.

Another added: "I was 33 years old! I'm glad I'm not the only one."

"It's ok your not alone, I'm sticking to the Chester draws I like it better that way," a third wrote.
