    Of course it's different. You keep telling yourself that. Unlike you, I have no problem with being called judgmental. Yes, I judge people occasionally. So do you. You're just not ready to admit it.
    Unhappiness? Every day that the good Lord blesses me and my family with life makes me happy. Everything else is icing on the cake.

    I never said I never judge people. We all do but her statement was, in my opinion, not cause for anyone to attack her morality or character. She made an honest mistake. It's not like she found them right outside the shops and could simply return them. And the quote at the end was priceless. Hahahaha

    She's in the same "building" that the items were taken. Yes, she could have easily returned them even if it was the next day. You have your opinion and I have mine. Just note that I don't begrudge you for yours. Mine is no more valid than yours and vice versa.

    I assumed she meant while she was off the ship in the shops...

    :( It was fun while it lasted.

    Nobody was hurt or put in danger and it didn't directly impact you, so why the need to call someone out?

    Stealing is bad. We all know that. But if you're going to comment on that one, why not all the other confessions of theft. Plates, glasses, H2O products, etc. I'm guessing those items had about the same dollar value as the items taken by that small child.

    My guess is that you just didn't like the "tone" of that post. Maybe because the items were taken from a shop versus the dining room? Either way, sad reason to spoil the thread.

    If we had a "like" button, I'd like your post.

    So how about I try a confession -

    I do not like the H2O products..Well, I liked the body butter, but have no interest in the shampoo, conditioner, or regular lotion.

    Ok, I'll confess, too. I don't like the H2O + shampoo, either. Love the body butter, though. I also have zero interest in Palo or Remy (gasp!). Why pay extra money for it when I'm already getting good food and great service in MDR?

    Ok that's hilarious! Were you sure you weren't just giving back the items you got to the ppl who gave them to you? ;-)

    I'll confess: I was going to participate in the FE group on our last cruise, but the idea of making a FE & presents for everyone stressed me out so much that I dropped out! Too much pressure to make something cute!

    Regifting- yay!

    Not a DCL confession, but since some brought up regifting....last month we celebrated my birthday. My MIL insisted all of the family in town go to lunch for my birthday. Just a year ago I thought all siblings agreed to no more birthday gifts to each other-just to nieces and nephews. I was tired of buying a gift card or dumb gift, just to receive the same. Anyway, I suspect my MIL told the SIL's to bring me a gift, so one gave me a card and $25 cash. The other gave me a $15 Starbucks card.

    The one that gave me the Starbucks card- her husbands birthday was last week. I told my wife to send the card to him since I had not used it yet. I KNOW my SIL will look at it and say "hmmm...this is the same card I just gave him." Pretty bad to regift back to the same family.

    I don't like the H2O products either. I get them and then put them into my "go bag" for decon/disaster team at work or our guest room (which people get really impressed.).

    I have never been on a Disney cruise, or any for that matter, and this is my first time on a Disney forum, or any , for that matter. I have however, been to DL and WDW several times, we are going to DL this weekend. I get 'looks' from my family for bringing home cups, mickey head plates form the child's menu(I have no young children). I either ask for them or 'find' them wherever someone else has left them. One of my fav is a plastic wine glass from DCA. I have complete sets. When we stayed at the Saratoga, I took all the paper plates home with me. We also self- toured the Grand Floridian (did not stay there) and asked for some of the shampoo, etc from the carts, and took a few extra. I was so happy to find this thread because my husband thinks I'm nuts.It's nice to know others think the same as I do. We are going on our first cruise together in Nov out of Galveston and I don't expect to change much before then. I will continue to bring back as much of whatever souveniers I can find, acquire, etc. I am not above dumpster diving. People throw away the most useful items! As far as the item in the stroller, all I can say is we all have our own standards. What I have done, someone else may not approve of, and vice versa. This is not a judging site, but a sharing site. I am happy to be here. And can't wait for my cruise experiencepixiedust:

    I don't like the H2O products for my hair, but I LOVE the body butter!

    I do horde them though.

    I have a new confession (to try and keep the thread going) that seems to get weird looks when I do it each cruise - I don't like wearing my bathing suit onto the ship on embarkation day, so I just bring it packed and then change into it in the bathroom by the pool. I actually don't know why this gets weird looks - I DO go into the stall, for Pete's sake - but each and every time I always get some weird glances as I walk out with my clothes in hand and a suit and cover up on.

    I confess the same! I really wanted to participate in the FE exchange but just couldn't think of something cute and then to make 20-30 of them and get them on the ship and then deliver them. :scared: it just became to much for me.

    Yea. I've not done Palo or Remy either and don't have a huge interest. I don't think for me that it's really money as I like to eat meals with my family.

    I bring back a few for our women's shelter who provide items to women and their children who have moved out suddenly and have very little to get started with. I figure the kids will like the "Mickey" stuff and can use some happiness in their lives. We don't bring back a lot though.


    Never regifted to other FEs, but I do leave a lot of the candy/snacks (unless they are regional to the gifter and we want to try something new) for the room host/hostess and youth activity cm's. We don't eat much candy and I don't want to bring it back.
