Factual Fiction - Shop Lifter Gets Away with a Shopping Basket

Unintentionally off course!
Close to mid night at a mall in Serrangoon Singapore.
The lady finishes her shopping and carries the billed good(ie)s in the shopping basket.
She spots a cab crossing the entry of the mall and rushes out blindly and unthinking and gets inside the cab mentioning the hotel name all in a single breath. Cabs at that hour is difficult to find unless you stand for atleast 20 minutes or more or walk the street lugging all the heavy shopping with you or call for one which may again take another 20 minutes minimum. So lucky if one passes right in front of your nose and it will be a damn to miss it.
A few minutes pass and the lady screams- oops I have the store basket with me by mistake, let's go back to drop it.
The cab driver refuses to turn saying it is not worth getting back.
The lady is too ashamed to leave it behind in the hotel and wanted to avoid questions by the "foreign" hotel staff. All that filmy fear of doing anything illegal in a foreign land, passport getting conficated and the works.
She packs up the basket of goodies inside her spacious airbag specially brought to take back all the mindless shopping she does in any city she visits.
She comes back home and today the basket serves her well for storing toys and...

PS- Meanwhile, if the store owner is reading this, I am sorry it was unintentional and I am always ready to give it back if you want it, but I 'd rather not since it is coming of great use to us.
