Friday Poll



Do you have anything that was acquired through ill-gotten means?

I almost stole some nutmeg at the grocery store the other day. Ages ago I bought and payed for some, but somehow it did not make it into my grocery bags. I figured that they owed me, but at the last second I chickened out and payed for it. Lame I know.

*GASP* Never!

Actually, I probably possess something ill-gotten, but I've chosen to forgotten to protect the guilty...uh, I mean innocent.

Truth?
As a kid (who knew better) I took home a stuffed animal I loved SO MUCH from a church nursery. Yes, I know.. I stole from a church! Lightning shall strike me down. But I probably donated it at a later point, so I don't actually still own it. Or did I ever really own it? Hmmm...

Um, seeing my husband is 10 years older than me and I was just scraping in the tail end of being a teen when I fell pregnant with my daughter.....

I am thinking 'child'.

Cause that kinda shit should be illegal! Well I think that now of course cause Moo is only 2 years younger than I was when I met her father...

And a huge mofo chess piece from a restaurant. Don't know how the hell we got it out!

Not really...I stole some groceries by mistake (put trays of pop underneath the shopping cart, and forgot about them). Then I went back to tell them about it, and they refused to take my money. I'm such a loser...

My husband and I stole a traffic cone once. It was a special bonding moment between us. We used to put in front of the bathroom door as a 'warning' - it turned out to be very effective.

You mean..um..stolen? I have a hymn book I stole from the Bible college I attended 25 years ago.

And somewhere I have books of poetry I stole from my high school library.

I honestly can't think of a thing right now. I'll come back later if I do!

Beautiful pair of wine glasses from Cinderella at Disney World.

Steph said...

I can't think of anything at the moment. On a similar note, do you think the folks at Cinderella's Royal Table would buy it that we were on our honeymoon if we showed up with our 3 and 6 year olds in tow? ;-)

All the souls of y many minions. Really, I can't think of anything at the moment.

Don't tell - but my ironing board cover. Years ago I was in Target and put it in the bottom of my cart. Then I decided to buy 4 giant storage bins. Which went right on top of them. When it came time to check out, I pulled out one of the bins and they scanned it for purchasing four.

When I got out to my car, I pulled out the bins and there it was. I didn't go back and pay for it.

To this day, when I step foot in Target, I think of it.

I am such a goody goody that I WANT to pay for it to make up for it.

No. I'm perfect. ;-)

aww I'm so glad you posted a pic! I found some really cute mickey and minnie ones yesterday online. If I could get them the same you did...I WOULD!

Yay picture! Don't let Py fool you. We once stole the bus stop poster for Bass beer. But we kind of had to. It was Nietszche, and Ted was doing his master's thesis on Nietszche...

Lord, where do I begin?

Let's just say for now that I knew a number of shady characters back in the day. I wrote about a couple of them on my blog a few weeks back.

About 20 rolls of blue shop towels (don't ask) and for awesome mom, I did that the other day at the store with a container of caramel dip. I didn't "feel like" going back inside so, instead, I wrote a check for $20 bucks to a local veterans association that I probably wouldn't have at this time. I hope I am absolved...but it still bothers me.

Once a girlfriend and I needed to get a car rental. It was over a very busy holiday and all the rental companies were booked. We went to a rental company with a fake reservation number. Of course they couldn't pull it up and we accused them of loosing our reservation. My friend started making a stink so the reservationist offered to make us a new reservation at the going jacked-up rate which was astronomical. My friend started making a bigger stink and asked for the manager.

Long story short we ended up getting a luxury vehicle at employee discount rate. Yes we were VERY wrong! But dang we sure enjoyed the ride! lol

I haven't stolen anything in a while but I'v got my eye on one of those shiny red Cadilacs that Kate Walsh drives in those comercials. She's kind of hot too.

Years ago,we were attending a wedding and a group of us stayed at a very nice hotel.

The next morning a woman I barely knew gave me 4 wine glasses that she had PICKED UP in the hallway of the hotel.They had been put out there by guests who were finished with their room service trays.

I didn't know what to do so I kept those glasses but have never been able to actually use them.

I have never seen that woman since or I would have given her the glasses back. I am embarrassed that I didn't have the nerve to refuse them at the time she foisted them off on me...

I was buying a nice black dress at T.J. Maxx for a cocktail party and also picked up a couple of cheap tank tops. I didn't notice at the time, but when the salesgirl rang everything up, she rang one of the tanktops twice and skipped the dress. I didn't notice until I got home and I was too lazy to go back to the store. So I got a nice cocktail dress for $5.
