My shoplifting experience!
I know you are probably shocked, but yes, I actually shoplifted a
bathing suit bottom from TJ Maxx on a recent visit to Ft. Myers. In my defense, I was in a big hurry as it was
almost time to pick up my grandsons from school. Hopefully
you are not judging me, but imagine my surprise when I got home and realized I
had left the store with a bathing suit bottom (ON). In an effort
to “do the right thing”, I decided I would take the bathing suit back to my
local TJ Maxx. In a quiet voice, I
explained to the clerk that I had accidentally ended up with a bathing suit bottom that I
did not purchase. Now I might have left
a little part of the story out because I did not want the her to know that I
actually wore it out of the store under my clothes. Eyeing me suspiciously, she
calls over a store manager who looked young enough to be my son. I swallowed hard thinking, “Oh Lord, I might
end up in jail yet!” Once again I repeat
my story. The store manager told me that they could not accept it, and I would
need to return it to the store it came from.
I explained, in my sweetest voice, that I might not be back in Fort
Myers for a long time. Unbending, he
responded, “Ma’am, you will need to return this to the TJ Maxx in Ft.
Myers!” I responded, “Oh great, my face
is probably posted on billboards all over Ft. Myers at this point!” Who knows, I might getting one of those
bracelets yet! Signed, Sticky Fingers
