Let me set the scene:
You are in a department store. You have found a few cute items on the clearance rack and decide to try them on.
The first are a pair of cute khaki Bermuda shorts. With button back pockets. You try them on along with a shirt that is depressingly small on you, despite the size indicator. You pull the shirt off as quickly as possible, so as to avoid tearful breakdown, and notice something hard in the back pocket of the pants.
Unbutton the first pocket and reach inside. Pull out a STACK, not one or two or five, but a STACK of empty earring cards. Realize there is something in the other pocket. Open it up and pull out another stack of earring cards along with a tag that looks like it may have come off a pair of flip flops. Panic a little inside, because you know exactly what this means: someone has taken all of the earrings off the cards, put the cards in the pants pocket so no one would see them, and then walked off with many stolen earrings. And possibly some flip flops.
So, what do you do?
Especially when you realize that out of the stack of things selected from the clearance rack the only thing you want to purchase is that pair of shorts?
A: Put the cards back in the pants pocket and hope no one notices them when you buy them.
B: Put all of the cards in your diaper bag and hope they don't set off any alarms when you leave.
C: Throw all of the cards under the bench in the dressing room and quietly leave, hoping no one will notice and question you.
D: Take the stack of cards to the fitting room attendant and explain what happened, and hope that they don't put you under suspicion and make you pay for all the stolen earrings.
So, seriously--what would you do?
