Every now and then I spot, or discover, a kleptomaniac (aka a klepto)....
Usually when one of these klepto-sightings occurs there is alcohol present and the "must have" item is some kind of glass.....(which leads me to believe that alot of kleptos reveal their true nature after a few drinks and that kleptos always feel they need glassware).
On Saturday night I watched a klepto shove a beer glass into his girlfriends big bag. As if this wasn't bad enough he made sure people saw he was doing it......(which now leads me to believe that kleptos are proud of being kleptos ).
After watching this display I had a little klepto sighting flash back... It was almost a year ago.....I was sitting at a restaurant with some friends, when after a few drinks the klepto at the table revealed herself by sticking a glass in her bag (there often seems to be one klepto in a group of friends). Then the klepto looked over at my bag and gave me a "klepto compliment".....
Klepto: wow, you have a nice big bag. you'd be able to fit a few glasses in that.
Me: ummm, thanks..... I think.
While i dont mind being friends with a klepto, I won't be inviting them to my next dinner party - I like my glassware too much ;)
Are you a klepto? Do you know a klepto?
