Okay RHU, NumismaticNerd here with a half confession, half question.
First the confession.
I was an NAT on Sunday.
It wasn't on purpose (of course) so I'll give the details:
It is the last day of the 18+ Anime Convention (same one I went to last year in this post. If anyone wants to know more about it: Sangawa Project and closing ceremonies have just ended.
It's a short walk from the hotel where the convention was held to the nearest K-fart, which I do, grabbing a cart that is three parking-lots away as I go. (Took a picture of that before I pushed it back)
Having just come from a con, I have my bag with me, as well as my (EXPENSIVE) Ball-jointed dolls, so I put everything into the cart as I make my trek.
My ride is still about an hour from being done work (curse you self, not having a driver's license) so I peruse the store. Seeing a $10 water bottle, I grab it, since I've been looking for one ever since someone at my school stole my first one. I put it in the cart and continue walking. In the clearance section, I pick up two toys at $1.99 each, both of which I can salvage parts from, for my BJDs.
I buy the two doll things, planning on buying the water bottle once my ride shows up (begging her for money to do so, since it's just after a three day convention) then I sit, seeing whether or not I wasted my last $4.
As I'm waiting and changing my biggest doll's clothes, my sister comes and we talk. She mentions that she'll be around shopping and wanders off. Good news: the doll's clothes fit! My 1/3 scale SD now has a new swimsuit! As I put my doll back into the cart, my sister comes back over and helps me grab everything. Somehow or another, the cup made it into my bag from the convention.
Out of sight, out of mind, it must be, because after getting a few more things, we leave the store. The water bottle is still in my bag and unpaid for. I don't realize this until I get home and unpack my bag.
Now I have used the water bottle already, because it's summer and it's hot, and I'd rather not overheat as I walk to school, but what do I do?
Do I go back to K-fart with the UPC to buy it?
Will they treat me like a thief?
Or *hides for even thinking of this* do I just forget it happened?
Thanks for the advice...
