Story time.

So years ago I frequented a liquidation outlet store, I got friendly with a cashier there, sometimes she'd follow me if she was stocking shelves so we could chat, it turned into casual flirting. One day I go in and get about $50 worth of items, I see the cashier I've been getting friendly with, looking for any excuse to talk with her more I go to her till. We small talk, she's bagging the goods, we laugh together, she continues bagging the goods, I'm feeling confident with our interactions by now so I ask if she'd like my number. She says she's interested so I write down my number as she frantically bags the last couple items. I hand her my number, she smiles and says thanks, tells me to have a good day, I grab my bags and leave.

So.. I'm elated by this interaction while I'm walking home, I reach into my pocket for a lighter and notice I still have all of my money.. I unintentionally used "smoothtalk" to steal. Things is I gave her my real phone number, I was certain I would get a call. I didn't. I was younger at the time and embarrassed so I never went back. I wasn't wealthy at the time so I was pretty excited for the food, but I have always wondered if there were repercussions for the cashier due to the nature of the theft.
