I’m not generally a thief. Really, I’m not. I’ve never even shoplifted–unless you count stealing cool glasses from bars, which I don’t, because they were never on sale in the first place (I know this is a bad habit and I haven’t done it in a long time).
I certainly didn’t do it on purpose. I was only borrowing them, honest. However, it is now 2 months after my sublet has ended, and I still haven’t gotten around to placing the keys in an envelope, addressing that envelope, sticking a stamp on it, and putting it in the mailbox. Even thinking about all of those steps to simply return the keys to the girl frustrates me.
So I don’t want to admit I stole someone’s keys, but at this point, it doesn’t seem likely that I will ever return them.
Of course, I might do it tomorrow, so I still don’t think you should call me a thief.
