Consistent Configuration Error

This has happened to me already three times as I’ve been manually inputting configs in my configuration.yaml file. Any time I save the config and check the config through UI, I get this error pop up. I don’t have any extraneous letters or anything that stands out as red flags. Any idea what can be causing this? Below is an example of one of my configs that I received an error for and below that is the error.

Error loading /config/configuration.yaml: while scanning for the next token
found character '\t' that cannot start any token
in "/config/configuration.yaml", line 28, column 1

For reference, I’m running Home Assistant Core 2021.8.3 on Synology NAS.

Did you use tab? Only use spaces for writing YAML.

I feel dumb

If you use a more advanced editor (like VSCode or Notepad++) they can convert tabs to spaces automatically. But it is better to get into the habit of not using them.
