Here's my story:
Yesterday after work I ran down to the bookstore to get a couple of moving boxes and a roll of tape. I was on the phone with my sister while I grabbed what I needed and went to the register. I put it all on the counter. The girl ringing me up was also on the phone. She gave me my total, I paid, then happily walked away with my purchases, still talking to Faith.
It wasn't until I was in the car and off the phone that the total clicked in. She had said 9 dollars and some odd cents. The boxes were 3 a piece and I was sure the tape was more than a penny.
I pulled out the receipt:
I did what any self-respecting, honest person would do. I called my sister back immediately and told her that I had stolen tape and it was her fault.
I was already home so I emailed myself to remind me of my criminal act when I got to work today:
Here's a picture of my loot:
And here's proof of ownership:
Notice the 20% off (everything in the store) sale that was going on today that wasn't going on yesterday. That's what you get for stealing and then repenting. 20% off the cost.
I've learned my lesson.
Apparently crime does pay.
