An Honest Thief

, , | Right | July 31, 2018

(I’m the customer. I’m returning a premade pie crust.)

Me: “Hi, sorry, I don’t have a receipt, but I’d like to return this. It smelled horrible when I opened it.”

Manager: “Sure, do you just want another one of the same?”

Me: “Yes, please.”

Manager: “Okay, go get one.”

Me: “What, and bring it back here?”

Manager: “No, just get it and leave.”

Me: “But without paying for it?”

Manager: “You paid for this one.”

Me: “But won’t someone stop me from stealing it?”

Manager: “No…” *points to name tag* “…and if they do, tell them I said it was okay.”

Me: “But… really? Just go take it?”

Manager: “Yes!”

(I leave the help desk, get the new item, and meet up with my sister who is shopping. She holds up her basket for me to add the pie crust.)

Me: “No, no, I’m stealing this!”

(I made a key lime pie with my “stolen” pie crust. It was delicious!)
