MAD Monday!!

So much for the start of my productive week. This day was ruined by petty theft. I went shopping with my girlfriends this morning, we hit the outlet mall and I found a great deal on a pair of capri's and clam diggers that fit perfectly and were 60% off! Sweet!! Later I was in a store helping Amy and Rachelle find shoes, you know, those do it yourself places. Well as I am finding sizes, opening boxes, admiring and encouraging them to purchase the cuteness adorning their feet, my shopping bag was swiped! GONE!! OH I was SO stinking mad!! I still am.
I'm mad that I set the bag down in a busy store,(yeah what recession?).
I'm mad for not paying attention.
I'm mad for leaving the receipt in the bag.
I'm mad that I can't jack-slap the person for stealing $50 plus bucks from me.
I'm mad because, I KNOW BETTER!

Dang it, it sucks when this happens to anyone, but it really really sucks when it happens to me..

I reported it to mall security, backtracked all my steps, just in case I'm crazy and lost it, and left my name and number with the manager of the store to keep an eye out for these two items being returned. I'm totally S.O.L. And I just couldn't bring myself to re-purchase the stuff, no matter what a great deal they were and how well they fit. The reminder would just make me MAD!

Would you call me MAD for not letting things go very easily?

Oh I would be just as MAD! I am sorry someone had to put their sticky ole hands on your belongings!!

What is WRONG with people? I swear, this is the third post I've read this week where people have had things stolen from them.

I would be totally P.O.'d, too. I hope the dang pants are so tight on their large arses (see how I assume??) that they cut off their circulation to the point they require hospitalization.

Oh my Goodness! I can't believe someone took it. I would be totally mad too... I have seen things left in stores & the ppl have totally left & forgotten it. I can't believe people are such scum to steal something you bought.

I don't even know what to say. That is so disappointing and infuriating at the same time. Don't those stores have video survelience?

That stinks so bad. Why are people so selfish and evil? I'm so sad for you.

That sucks SO bad. I'm so paranoid when I'm out anywhere..I buckle my purse in the child strap in the carts at Wal Mart. So sorry that happened.

Hell no! I'm mad for you! And I'm glad you didn't re-buy them because then you technically would have spent 100 dollars on them. And would that have still been a great deal? Probably not. I mean unless they were marked off like 95%. then yes, you should have re-bought them. Is that a word...re-bought?

Stopping by from SITS to give you a big welcome to the group! We look forward to seeing you around!
