I am writing to you to apologise, I committed a crime in your shop today, unintentionally I assure you, but still a crime. I stole a kiwi. This is what happened.
This morning, I went to your shop with my 23 month old daughter. We were having a lovely time wandering through your aisles and filling our trolley. My daughter, Elisabeth, was eating a snack (basically I bribed her to sit in the trolley by promising her a snack, believe me, you do not want my little whirlwind running around in your shop) and deciding what leggings she liked better, the red ones or the green ones. We went with red, but I digress.
Anyway, when she finished her snack she realised she hadn’t brought her teddy with her. She got a little upset because ‘her ted’, as she calls him, goes everywhere with her. To soften the blow a bit, we went to the fruit aisle and got her a kiwi. Don’t ask me why but she likes holding (and eating) kiwis, this made her happy.
When we were nearly done, Elisabeth said she was thirsty and she wanted a drink. Luckily I had remembered to put a cup of water in my bag for her. So, I got her cup out of my bag, gave it to Elisabeth, she gave me the kiwi as she couldn’t hold both……..and without thinking………I put the kiwi in my bag……….
It wasn’t until we got home that I realised I had accidentally shoplifted a kiwi.
I am very sorry Sainsbury’s for stealing a kiwi and I promise next time I visit the shop I will pay an extra £0.35 to cover the cost.
Kindest Regards and Sincerest Apologies
