To win a copy of Wendy's latest relase, leave a comment below telling me about a story of you and a close friend and a time you faced adversity.
To kick things off, I will tell mine!
My BF and I went shopping together *alone* for the very first time in 8th grade. We felt very grown-up with our purses and school IDs. The final stop on our "girls day out" was the popular accessory store Claire's. Claire's was the mecca for headbands, earrings, belts, all kinds of random things.
We spent almost an hour and in Claire's and after admiring most of everything, we each chose to buy a pair of fake sapphire studs. We rang our purchases up and left.
We got back to my place and emptied out our bags and lo and behold I see this tumble out of my Claire's bag:
How did that get there? I didn't buy it! My BF and I stared at it and then each other suspiciously. I assumed my BF had "lifted" it and put it into my bag. My BF assumed I'd lifted it! We grabbed at our receipts and looked to see if we'd been charged for said tiara.
We had not.
We both assumed the police would come through the door at any time and drag us off the jail for shop-lifting. Finally, we confessed to my mother who pursed her lips and called the store.
Lo and behold, because we'd bought two of the same thing, the cashier than thrown in the tiara as a "gift". They apparently had a surplus of them and didn't know what to do with them.
My BF and I went on to be friends for years after but this was definitely a turning point in our relationship for the better. We each learned that the other was much too afraid of being tossed in jail to ever break the law willingly!
Neither of us ever wore the tiara either....too tainted!
What about you? Share to win!
