Yesterday I found out that my debit card number was stolen and used to make some expensive purchases. I keep telling myself that the person who stole my debit card number and bought $485 worth of stuff at Walmart was buying baby food and diapers for their children who would otherwise have to go without. Or maybe the thief was just trying to buy his or her poor grandmother her heart pills at the Walmart pharmacy (I often hear the elderly make mention of "heart pills.") This type of thinking is what I use to keep my anger manageable in these situations.
Somehow, though, I think the purchase breakdown would look more like this:
|Skull-emroidered subwoofer : $129.00|
|Confederate Alphabet Book: $14.44|
|Tweety Attitude Steering Wheel Cover : $8.54|
|Extenze Male Enhancement Formula : $28.36|
|Milwaukee's Best, 32 oz. can : $2.00|
|Identigene DNA Paternity Test Kit : $27.58|
