Spending Habits Revealed

My friend J and I had lunch together the other day.

At the end of our meal, we split the charge on our American Express cards. Inadvertently, we switched cards and spent the next week walking around with each other's credit card.

Strangely, the switch wasn't detected until a week later, when I was buying a combination lock at a luggage store and looked down to see HER name printed on what I thought was my card!

We tallied up what we'd spent on each other's cards in the time we had them, to figure out whether we owed each other money.

Her: A bikini and upper lip wax, a tie for her husband, and $80 at the drugstore (what?)

Me: $100 to Catholic Charities, a new hat and $95 at Barnes & Noble (what)?

When we met to give our cards back to each other, we were both a little embarrassed.

I now know that she keeps herself well-groomed and loves buying drugstore beauty supplies. And she now knows that I'm generous with my charitable giving, but tend to go a little crazy when I shop for books.
