To hope she bloody hates all of the chocolates?

I'm so upset sad

It's my birthday, was supposed to be going to the cinema, but all my health conditions have flared up, so have had to cancel. So I thought I'd do something I never do, and buy some fancy chocolates to eat with a film at home instead. Went to my favorite chocolate shop, got a selection of chocolates, did my grocery shopping, and got on the bus home. Put my shopping bag in the rack, within eyesight, as not much leg room with a stick as well.

Woman got on the bus with her adult sister and two kids. Sister and older child went upstairs, woman stayed downstairs with the buggy. When they were getting off, the sister said, "Oh, and don't forget this!". Saw her hand a bag over from the same chocolate shop. Didn't think anything of it until I went to get off two stops later, checked my bags, and the chocolates had gone.

It's not just about the chocolates. It';s about the fact I was trying to make up for my birthday plans going out of the window because of my health. I very rarely buy chocolates, especially never 'nice' chocolates, and it felt nice to make a bit of a fuss over my birthday when I normally don't.

Who the hell just steals a bag of chocolates? Why would you do that??

So... AIBU to hope they get recalled urgently she really hates my choice in chocolates?

Wtf? Who does this ?! So sorry OP, that's really shit.

Would some of wine & thanks help?

Happy birthday though!

Firstly, Happy Birthday! Secondly, sorry everything's flared up. Thirdly, I'd be hoping she chokes on them...(disclaimer...the choking thing's a figure of speech wink )

Oh yeah..yanbu

What an utter cow! Assuming the sister made an innocent mistake - who just accepts a bag they know doesn't belong to them?

Happy birthday though!

I hope they give her the shits of doom.

Robbing scummy twat that she is.

Happy birthday flowers

That is so awful, I really feel for you. I had my purse nicked on my birthday once and was in bits. But as a chocolate addict (who is a snob and buys it from a posh chocolate shop) I would be gutted if it was nicked.

StealthOfficialCrispTester Fri 17-May-13 14:38:54

Oh im sorry op. Happy birthday. Where do you live?

SirBoobAlot Fri 17-May-13 14:40:58

I thought about either putting "give her the shits" or "that she chokes" but thought I might get flamed wink

I don't buy myself nice things very often, certainly not nice chocolates, and to just have them taken has upset me. Don't make a big fuss about my birthday, but I was really looking forward to sitting down later with the chocolates, a film, and a glass of wine, once DS was in bed.

Eugh.

Happy Birthday flowers and wine

What an disgusting thing to do! What hope do the poor children have, when you have a mother who thinks nothing of stealing angry

AlistairSim Fri 17-May-13 14:42:52

That sucks whale cock, OP.

flowers for you.

SirBoobAlot Fri 17-May-13 14:42:53

Near Brighton, though I used all my energy this morning, so am not even feeling well enough to think "ah fuck it" and go back in, though spending less money...

The salad I got isn't particularly appealing if it's not being followed by a Hotel Chocolat selection sad

StealthOfficialCrispTester Fri 17-May-13 14:42:59

Too right where are yiu. And what were thr chocs - we can all tell you how awful they are.
Id like to think hrr loot will taste bitter to her but I doubt it :-(

HibiscusIsland Fri 17-May-13 14:43:03

Happy Birthday OP. I hope the woman and her sister have a strange allergic reaction to the chocolates which causes them to get the squits throughout the weekend.

Thumbwitch Fri 17-May-13 14:45:12

BLoody awful thing to do shockangry
And yes, why did she accept the bag if she knew it wasn't hers? hmm

Have more wine and Happy Birthday anyway.

Hope they hate them all

Karma's going to get her...what a nasty pasty she is, there's some seriously weirdly wired people around sad

Happy Birthday smile

It doesn't really sound like an intentional nick.

Why would the woman announce to her sister (and the rest of the bus) that they were about to take a bag that wasn't theirs?

Is is possible that they also had a bag of chocolates and had forgotten who was actually holding them?

Trumpton Fri 17-May-13 14:47:47

Pm on it's way to you.

Fuckwittery Fri 17-May-13 14:50:02

I reckon woman accepting bag didnt look at it in the rush to get off the bus with two kids and a buggy and they both made a mistake. she probably realised as soon as she was off the bus.
sorry op, you should def go and buy some more choc

ClaraOswald Fri 17-May-13 14:50:02

I hope she's allergic. Or that they choke.

diddl Fri 17-May-13 14:59:20

I can see how the woman who stayed downstairs may have just quickly taken the bag thinking it was hers.

But the sister who went upstairs actually stole it from out of OP's bag?

That is awful.

Fuckwittery Fri 17-May-13 16:03:56

maybe sister was carrying a similar bag for the downstairs sister when she went upstairs, handed back the wrong one or summin? i just like to think there has been bag confusion than that anyone would stoop this low so brazenly!

PoppyWearer Fri 17-May-13 16:06:11

Happy Birthday OP winethankswinethanks

SirBoobAlot Fri 17-May-13 16:19:59

It wasn't a mistake, as it was a 'Hotel Chocoolat' bag. They would have both known what was in it. And seeing as the older of the children was eating a bag of Thorntons chocolates, I highly doubt they got confused thinking it was theirs.

I'd like to think it was an honest mistake, but there was a pause as it was handed from one sister to another, I should have got suspicious then.

Thank you for the birthday wishes, however smile

Lambzig Fri 17-May-13 16:25:33

Happy birthday

YANBU, they were Hotel Chocolat (I love the fruity ones, but everyone else I know hates them, they weren't those were they?) for goodness sake.

Love the anti Thorntons snobbery in your last post. I agree completely.

That is dreadful.

Happy birthday. It was mine yesterday and that went a bit tits up as well.

SirBoobAlot Fri 17-May-13 16:35:05

Lambzig, I used my birthday money (without wishing to sound like a child..!) - there was a pack of the Lemon Cheesecake, a pack of one of the types of praline, a pack of Raspberry Moose, a pack of Gin Collins and a pack of Trillionaire Shortbread... As well a two extra free tasters that the manager gave me because he heard it was my birthday (I'd been on the phone when I arrived in the shop). I love the fruit ones sad

Was supposed to sound snobby, simply meant I doubted they had been to Hotel Chocolat if they'd also been to Thorntons blush grin

Exit I'm sorry your birthday went tits up too.

Ashoething Fri 17-May-13 16:35:47

That's a shame op but hope you enjoy your birthday anyway-on another note how are things going with the twunt bf-have you dumped him yet?

SirBoobAlot Fri 17-May-13 16:38:46

Ashoething - he's well and truly gone smile

Ashoething Fri 17-May-13 16:39:47

YAY!!-that is definitely something to celebrate then!

SirBoobAlot Fri 17-May-13 16:41:35
