I just got back from grocery shopping with DH, at the checkout, the woman in front of us had an awfully bad fake Bucket. It was in bad shape too, used, very used. I looked at DH and he looked and winked at me. She pulled out a fake mono wallet to pay for her stuff and was 3.00 short of her total. She had basics, milk, cheese, bread, eggs and granola bars. She was going to have the granola bars taken off when DH said, "here, I have 3.00, please let me give it to you if you promise to do something nice for someone else." She didn't want to take it at first but then agreed. She had a little girl with her, they were both dressed in clean, neat clothes, they were clean, little girl was cute and polite and I felt bad. It seemed like she was trying and she clutched onto that bag like it was gold. I just got my Graffiti Speedy today (camera didn't come yet so sorry no pics yet) and she noticed it as they were packing her stuff into a bag and her eyes got wide and she asked me if she could see it. I held it up for her (now feeling terrible that I paid what I did for it and she couldn't pay for basic needs and I was laughing with DH over her fake bag) and she said, "Oh my that is so beautiful, it looks great on you" She then thrusted hers up for me to look at (very proudly too) and said, "here's mine, it was a gift from my husband for Christmas 2 years ago before he left for Afganistan." Then she took out the wallet and said, "he even bought me the wallet to match." I smiled and told her how beautiful it was as her daughter was telling DH about where daddy was and when he's going to be home. Our cashier then told us that she comes into the store all the time and buys just a few things at a time and usually the little girl has pictures or is telling stories about her father. She said that he was supposed to be home this past March but they kept him on. I still have a pit in my stomach and as much as I don't condone replicas, she didn't seem to know or care about the difference between my bag and hers. I could probably buy a thousand bags for what hers is worth to her though.
