I walked past a Peacocks shop and thought "Ah, I could probably get a cheap pair of jeans in there" so off I skipped, picked up two pairs of jeans in my size, they slightly different shades so I thought I would try them on.
After I enquired where the changing rooms where, I tried on the first pair and thought they looked alright, slipped back out of them again and picked up the other pair. I took off the hanger and noticed that the jeans were a different size than on the hanger.
This is the interesting bit, I promise.
As I was fiddling trying to get them back on the stupid hanger, I felt something in one of the pockets, I stuck my hand in and pulled out a lighter and then I noticed something else, a clear bag tied up. I only had a quick look at the bag before I chucked both items back in the pocket, I could see it was drugs.
At this point I got really scared, I knew the items weren't mine but I thought who would believe me? I wasn't too sure what to do, I thought the right course of action would be to tell on the shop assistants, surely they wouldn't think it was mine if I pointed them out?
As I walked out of the changing room I saw a shop assistant talking to a policeman, literally heart racing, the only thing I could think was to put the jeans back on the rack and walk out.
I did, walked straight passed the shop assistant, who was describing a woman to the policeman, obviously some shop lifter.
Then thoughts started running through my mind that they were looking for this woman because of the drugs...and I could have been her accomplice, the guy who walks in the shop and does the pick up.
So here I am, after doing a fast paced walk that Jan Molby would be proud off, sipping on a cup of tea feeling guilty. I just thought I would share this story of my day with you, I guess I could leave on a question...So I shall.
What would you do in this situation?
A) Take the items to the assistant and pray they would pat you on the back and not try to pin the drugs on you?
B) Put the jeans back on the rack and get out of the shop?
C) Take the items, put them in your pocket and find the nearest bin?
