Dear Mike & Liza,
My wife takes Splenda packets from restaurants. She’s always done this. In fact, I think her mother did it before her. It’s always irked me a little bit, but I decided not to make a big deal about it. Then she started taking all the jelly things and dropping them in her purse. And last week, we went to a restaurant that had tiny bottles of ketchup on the table. She said “It’s so cute” and took it. The waitress actually brought us another one because she thought she had forgotten.
My wife says restaurants expect this. I say it’s stealing.
You make the call.
Richard, Idaho Falls
