WWYD – Returning item to store
I was at the shopping center the other day, and was approached by a young mother, with a sleeping baby in the stroller. Someone I didn’t know.
She asked me if I was going upstairs – I was.
Then she asked if I would return an item that she was holding to a specific store because she took it out of the shop without realizing, and without paying for it. So would I please return it for her, because, the baby is sleeping….
I offered to watch her baby while she returned it herself (even though there were elevators right in front of us and she could have shlepped the stroller into the elevator) and she said “you don’t have to help me, I’ll find someone else”.
Last thing I want is to be accused of stealing an item that I would be trying to return for someone else.
What would you have done?
