I’ve always taken great pride in the fact that Elise is annoyingly frugal. But now it’s gotten to the point where she flat out steals.
Late last week she went to Target to return some things and to purchase very small clothes with the socks built into the pants. After checking out she made her way to the parking lot with an extra bag full of miscellaneous trash and plastic clothes hangers. She took the trash bag from the cash register.
Earlier this week she went to Wal-Mart for paper towels, shampoo, razors, etc. She came home with a bag full of little girl halter tops and leggings. She took a bag from the lady who was in line in front of her.
Last night we drove over to a friend’s house to pawn off Elise’s old college days futon. We stopped at HEB on the way home to pick something up for dinner. We got home and I unsacked the groceries.
“When did you get eggs?”
“I didn’t get eggs.”
“Why did you get bread? You just bought bread a couple days ago.”
“I didn’t get bread.”
“When did you get tomatoes?”
“I didn’t get tomatoes.”
She made off with a bag of groceries from the lady in front of us at the grocery store.
Despite my incessant begging against it, Elise returned the little girl halter tops and leggings. We’re keeping the bag of trash and bread though. That’s how we roll.
