A Bay needs to live outside - it's not a houseplant. If the sales assistant truly told you that it was a houseplant then I would take the plant back and ask for your money back. If however you asked if it was a 'hardy' plant and the answer was yes this may have been the point of confusion, as in gardening the term 'hardy' is used to refer to outdoor plants that can cope with the severity of frost which is normal in the UK (or wherever the shop is).
A Monstera deliciosa also known as the Swiss Cheese Plant would be much happier in your bedroom.
