Candy-Coated Stealing

, , , | Right | November 19, 2021

My brother, sister-in-law, and three nieces live with me now. As a treat, I decide to buy some chocolate for the kids while at the dollar store with my brother. This is the conversation that happens as we get up to the counter to pay for everything.

Me: *To my brother* “By the way, I’m not even going to tell them about the candy.”

Cashier: “What?!”

She starts searching through our items.

Me: *In my head* “Why does she care if I tell my nieces about candy?”

Brother: *Out loud* “She means my kids. She’s not going to tell my kids about the candy.”

I finally figure out what she was thinking.

Me: “I am so sorry. I didn’t even realize how that sounded!”

Thankfully, we all got to laugh it off afterward. Oops.
