It’s Not All Mary Poppins

‘Tis the Season

Our first Christmas card arrives!

“From your friends at PharmaRite.” Emma looks up, puzzled. “We have friends at PharmaRite?”

“Now that we’ve returned our stolen goods, we do.”

“Oh. Did you do that already?”

“I thought you guys did that last night, when you went out.”

“Noooo..” Emma looks guilty. Probably didn’t want the embarrassment.

“Gah.” Oh, well. I can do it. I’ll just make sure I return it to the woman who omitted to scan them – she can see my embarrassment and raise it twofold, poor woman.

“So we have no friends at PharmaRite.”

“Not yet!”

Emma throws the card out.

  1. I like this. It has the makings of a mini-series.

    Next installment: Mary P. enters the store — with the goods but without a receipt, of course — and is mistaken for a shoplifter. General hilarity ensues.

    Do you have to take the stolen goods in or can you just to in and pay for them?
