Picture this: You find an area rug on Craigslist that you love, and it's close to where you live. You arrange to meet the seller, but when you arrive, they're not home. You inspect the rug and decide it's not worth the asking price. So, you leave a few bucks and take it anyway. Is it stealing or justifiable? One husband and wife are at odds over this very situation. 🤔💥

Stealing or Justifiable? The Great Rug Debate! 🤔🔥

In a heated disagreement, a husband calls out his interior designer wife for taking a rug she found on Craigslist for just $5 instead of the agreed $40. The wife claims the seller's absence and false claims about the rug's condition justified her actions. The husband, however, insists it's theft. She eventually returns the rug, but not without giving her husband the cold shoulder for over a week. To make matters worse, their teenaged daughters witnessed the entire debacle! 😱💔 Let's dive into the internet's thoughts on this rug-tug-of-war! 🍿
