No good deed goes unpunished. Just explain it to her and keep doing the right thing.
You are right #1. No deed goes unpunished, which is why I try my best to contradict that theory! I lost my wallet one time at my school (though my school does not have a good reputation) and some kind girl turned it in to the office for me. When I retrieved it I asked who she was so I could reward her with a gift card with half the money I had in the wallet. I had 30$ in there so I have her a chipotle gift card for 15. Anyways, point is, keep doing the right thing, OP - there are times you won't meet an asshole!
Thank you, to everyone, who does the right thing! Society makes it harder on us for being do-gooders but I'd hope someone would do the same for me. I found 3, $2,000 checks made out to "cash" a few years ago, on the ground. There was no phone number on the check. I attempted to look up the person online with no avail. I took the checks to Chase, where the checks were from, and asked them to contact the account holder that the checks were found and turned in. I could have easily cashed $6,000 for myself since it was made out to "cash." The manager didn't do what I asked; she put them in a shred bin and told me if the account holder is worried, he'll call to have the checks cancelled. AKA, Chase wasn't going to contact him so he would have to pay to cancel the checks! Next time, I'll just send them in the mail to the account holder.
It is bad in society when we assume someone stole it, but i think most people will believe that someone stole their belonging if they see it in another persons hand. Though, since op was carrying the item in plain sight, i would ask why op has the item than punch him/her.
69- Im a woman and I have a really hard punch and no I am not a professional fighter. You can not base it off gender when it comes to men and women. Plus OP is a girl getting hit by another girl. Yeah in most cases men are stronger but everyone has their weak and strong points. Just an FYI. you'll be amazed how many regular women can actually kick someones ass whether they're male or female.
I can see why she did that, but it still sucks... Did you explain what you were doing with it?
It makes sense. Maybe she's poor and worked really hard for that stuff- so it means more to her.
Poor or not, the owner of the purse messed up big time! Assuming makes any situation worse than it should be. I wouldn't even ask why OP had my purse, I would have asked, "Hey, cute purse! Where did you buy it from?" No assumptions and OP would have the chance to say she found it in the bathroom and was returning it to the owner. But that just makes too much sense. Therefore, most people will keep assuming and expecting the worst.
OP You should be happy she wasn't packing or this would be much worse!
