The Rip-Off


The scene: an overpriced department store

The purpose for our visit: to purchase a $100 group gift card for a relative who just had a baby

After paying for the item, I put the card in my purse. My kids were quiet until we got outside. And then they let me have it.

"You paid $100 for that?" Camber screeched. "That's a total rip-off!"

"You are not that smart," added Cortlen.

Kellen produced an identical card from his pocket.

"I got one for free," he bragged. "The woman told me that I could have it."

Sometimes I don't think that I'm going to make it to forty.

Do not confuse the two cards and send the wrong one.

Your kids are onto something! You hand the clerk $100 and they hand you a plastic card. There logic makes sense :)

Very cute! Too bad the free one isn't worth $100! BTW that is quite the baby gift!
