What Would You Do? Shopping Spree For You Not Me

Having a shopping partner can sometimes make an excursion more enjoyable, but most of us know this isn't always true. A girlfriend described a recent experience she had shopping with her extremely wealthy aunt, which started out as a girls' day at Bergdorf's and ended in a lot of money spent. Her aunt tried on clothes for two hours and spent $10,000 with one swipe of her card, and then she told my friend it was time to shop for her. Find out what happened when you


After an hour of flattering encouragement from her aunt and a flurry of sweaters and skirts, my friend chose three items to take home. At the register, she thought perhaps her well-off shopping partner would volunteer to pay for something, but all she did was look at the price tag on a $300 sweater and comment that it was such a bargain.

My friend was surprised that her aunt didn't offer to indulge her 20-something niece after spending $10,000 on herself but felt uncomfortable about not buying anything at all. She ended up paying $900 and returning everything the following day, but she's left wondering if she was crazy to think her aunt would have chipped in for at least some of the damage. What would you have done in her situation?
