What would you have done??

Posted by   + Show Post

I went to the store today to pick up a few items. My son has been a bit of a crab today and has added a bit of a distraction. Well I used a self checkout and realized when I got to my car my son was holding a box of cake mix... *Sigh* Yes, I turned around and went back in and paid for the cake mix. I was temped not to between the crabby kid and the fact that it was cold and windy but it would have bugged the crap out of me if I hadn't!! What would you have done??

I would have done the same and just go back and pay for it.

I would have went back in too. I wouldn't have wanted to but I would have. I cant have a guilty conscience.

Exactly what you did. Orrr if my son was a baby and screaming I may have gone home and called the store to return it later. Letting them know I didn't actually steal!!  The guilt would kill me!

I am proud of you.That teaches your son not to take things that you haven't pay for.More Moms should be like you.

One time at walmart, I found a can of deordant in the cart after I had unloaded all my stuff. I had thought I had paid for it when in fact I hadn't, because I took the time to look at the receipt. I was to chicken to go back inside and do the right thing so I left. It was a lesson learned. I now clear the cart before loading bags, because I don't want to travel that way again. So, I guess I'm saying I would have left. Leaving the item in the cart just leaves it for someone else to grab, so I wouldn't have done that either.

I would have done exactly what you did.  It's only a few bucks, but the guilt would still eat at me.
