When you give presents to a lady you always let yourself in for trouble! Now you will have to scold the Mary Elizabeth people3 as a matter of principle.

Since they are near your office, you ought to reprove them and make them refund the money. It's worth five dollars to me on this desert isle, but that does not let the shop out.
