It's normal to feel guilty for using facilities at stores and restaurants without buying anything, so most of us will order small fries or a drink.
But the price tag might be a bit higher if you are a celebrity, as in the case of Chrissy Teigen who once purchased a Celine bag at Barneys because she had to use the department store's bathroom.
A fan on Twitter wrote, “One time I saw you at Barneys and you bought a Celine bag so you wouldn’t feel guilty about asking to use the bathroom. I knew I loved you before but that solidified it.”
In response to the tweet Chrissy shared, “Wow, anyone that knows me, this is very true all too often.”
The model has previously bought five wedding dresses after feeling bad about trying them all.
