It's ok OP. at least you were trying to do the right thing. Don't let her terrible reaction stop you from doing good things like that again.

It's a sad reflection on society when someone automatically assumes that a person stole it, rather than simply giving them the benefit of doubt and thanking them.

I had a lady get mad at me because I took her unattended cart with her purse and baby bag. im sorry but its my job to secure it so no one steals it, its happened before, a thank you would be kind enough smh

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

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

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.

Umm wow just goes to show that people are just crazy now adays . I think I would have had to defend myself. Or thrown her shit down and stomped on it. That was so not called for

Once again it seems that you know a lot about the strength of a girl's punch. Judging from your comments, it's not hard to see how you know so much.

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 disagree my first reaction would be to say "hey, that's my purse. where did you find it?" or something to that effect

Maybe she should've asked first why you had it?. And then you could've explained it. I'm sure it was just a misunderstanding.

Being poor does not exclude manners. No matter how hard she had to work for that iPad, she still should have asked before punching.

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.

You definately deserve a reward for that. Either way its good karma iv gotten my purse back 3 times and I always hand in things I find

But then you would risk the purse being left in the hands of the next person to find it and she might not do the right thing. The OP wanted to make sure it was returned to the rightful owner. :P

Making sure it is returned to its rightful owner at the cost of being punched in the face?? Not a wise move for me
