My MIL is a wonderful lady. A couple years ago I was haveing trouble finding a swim suit so she bought me one and paid 100 bucks for it. It's really nice but I've only worn it once because I have lost a ton of weight. This year I'm in search of a new swimsuit and she says that she wants to get me another one for my birthday. She gave me website to go to and pick one off.
So I found one, it's perfect but it's $1 dollar from the free shipping. Which is $75 so they tack on $11 dollars for shipping and 6 bucks for taxes and now she is paying for a almost $100 swimsuit AGAIN. She gave me her card number so I have to put it in.
I CAN"T DO IT!! My thought went dry, my hands aare shakeing, myheart is pounding and my adrinaline is soaring. I called her to tell her the price and she said that's fine. It's a good suit and it will last a long time. But I literally can't get my fingers to type in her card.
PS my sister is useing my old suit this year.
Is there something else you can find on that website that is cheaper then paying for shipping? That's what I do. Not sure how I would feel doing it with someone elses credit card though. Maybe ask her what she thinks?

I would say no then, I wouldn't do it. It's not like you aren't appreciative but yet your still having problems with buying it. So I would kindly tell her that I love her generousity but that I am not going to buy the bathing suit.
