Excerpt from the write-up:

quote:
Well, one night, I come home to find her with a sign. Not just a sign, but a big neighborhood corner sign sitting in the middle of the living room(see attached picture). She's the cutest thing in the world, so saying no to her--especially after she has her hands on something--is akin to taking an ice cream triple-decker cone from a kid.

But--I'm the stiff, "boring", the ethic driven guy in our relationship. She's the naughty, playful, and interesting one. I always have to tell her, "No, return what you took, I love you and you're cute as hell but we can't steal." When she puts the thing back, the look she gives me always makes me feel guilty as hell.

Anyway, I played along for as long as I could. I think she was testing me to see how far she could push it before I broke, but hours later and she wasn't showing any intention of putting the sign back.
I panicked, a little, and then a lot as she kept shaking her head and hugging it as reply to my prompts--

I snapped.
