I heard this story from a boyfriend.
His girl left him and moved out. On the way out she took one of his work boots.
This drove him crazy looking for his left boot, finally, after a week or two, he purchased a new pair of work boots.
But he kept an eye out and six months later they ran into each other and she came for dinner.
The night ended in a fight. So the next morning he was once again missing a work boot.
The girl had cleverly taken the left boot once again leaving him with two right boots, so he still couldn’t make a pair with the ones left behind.
It drove him nuts looking for both of them. He found out from a mutual friend what had happened a month later, but it made him crazy for almost a year.
Brilliant of her!!
