Before this thread gets locked . . .
Years ago I bought the DDs a bunk-bed set with mattresses. It was to be COD. Once the set was delivered, while the delivery people were moving everything into the DDs bedroom, I went to write a check for the purchase.
By the time I came back to give them the check, they were gone.
Me (confused): I didn't pay them.
LDH: They said it was paid for and they didn't need a check. Here's the paperwork. (The paperwork was clearly stamped "PAID")
Me: We so did not pay for this!
Much to LDH's chagrin, I called the store the next day (it was an after-hours delivery) and got things straightened out.
LDH: We so could have gotten this stuff for free! Why did you do this?
Me: Because I couldn't have our DDs sleeping on stolen goods.
LDH was morally wrong for trying to "get away with it." Which, since the receipt was stamped "PAID" we probably could have.
But it wouldn't sit right with my conscience.
