Let me tell you about…

…my shopping experience at Babies-R-Us yesterday.

I went to pick up one of the last things I needed for Belle – crib bedding. I picked this one up:

I got a couple of accessories to go with it:

Then, when I was checking out, the lady asked me if I wanted a Rewards card, so I said, sure, why not.

Then I got my total and was super excited – it was a lot less than I thought I would have to pay – but I figured it was due to the rewards card. But then I made the mistake?? of checking the receipt and noticed – OMG she forgot to charge the actual bedding set.

I told my mom and she was like, you have to go back and pay for it! But I have to admit… I soooo badly wanted to just turn the car on and drive away very very fast. Hehehehehe… I debated for a minute and then my conscience won and I went back and told the lady she’d almost given away a bedding set. She was amazed that I’d gone back. From the look on her face I don’t think she would’ve done the same thing if she was in my place!

What would you have done?

I’m glad I went back … but man oh man … I wish I didn’t have a conscience sometimes!

    Gone back. I did that once to pay for a barrette the woman missed and a sweater once….I have to live in my skin….soooooo

  2. its looking too good, Belle is lucky having parents like you

    Totally take it back. No way I could live with myself any other way. Honesty is always best!

  4. Good for you! I would have, too – esp in the presence of my Mom! 😉

  5. I would have gone back. . . wouldn’t want Beautiful Belle sleeping on stolen linens–would definitely be bad karma.

    Same with me. I have gone back as well. Once the person at the bank gave me too much money back and was so thankful that I went back since his register would have been off. I believe in what you give out towards others comes back.

  7. I probably would have done the same thing – debated with myself, then turned around and gone in! Cute choice of bedding, by the way!
