She stole $100. I refuse to encourage that type of behavior just because she's stressed over it. Apparently she isn't stressed enough to fess up and return the money.

Default Unbelievable justifications for stealing!

I told her to guard it while I knock on the kitchen door to ask the guys working there if one of them forgot it and I was yelled at to 'go away!' I immediately tell her 'grab it!' as others were starting to notice it. She does - $34, which paid for dinner.
Are we now thieves?
I found $100 at the bus stop on my corner. I found $200 between the door panel and seat of a stolen car that was around the corner from my house. Probably belonged to the car thief ...
Yes, you absolutely are thieves.

I wouldn't return money to a bank or a big corporation, either. Yes, I'd 'steal' it.


Finding money somewhere and not knowing the origin, is not 'stealing.' I don't care what the law says.

Really? You saw the windows down in a car and wanted to see if you could "help" someone, but you ended up stealing money instead. If you were really trying to help someone, there's no way that you knew that car was stolen when you stole the money. Your scenario is no different than if you saw someone's front door open, so you decide to go in and see if someone needed help, but you saw money sitting on a table or wherever, so you decided to steal it.

Also, you have no idea who's money that was. It very well could have belonged to the person who had their car stolen. You said that the car was in the "middle of nowhere" and also that it was also around the corner from your house. I guess you live in the middle of nowhere?

What should I have done? You tell me.
And what does my dad have to do with it? I found the money.
You sure have an odd way of helping people - stealing money from a car that was NOT yours! And what your dad has to do with it, is that you shared your stolen money with him. What you should have done, is nothing! You should have left the money where you found it - in someone else's car!

Why should we encourage her and give her positive vibes for stealing money? Oh, the poor dear -

This in particular is just so wrong, wanting to help someone and stealing from them instead. I used to hide emergency cash in my car and one night, a thief broke in my car and stole it. The police caught him and gave the money back to me. It was only $20 but I was grateful to have it back, at least. It's a shame people go around looking for opportunities to steal money out of cars.

Oh I don't know....not be a thief? And then not give your father stolen money?

Stress caused by her dishonest actions.

I am positive the store cameras will uncover what has happened.

I hope so! She's the perfect example of someone who is very sorry - sorry she got caught, but not sorry for what she did.

I can understand keeping a small amount of found money, but that ^ doesn't qualify. You took property out of someone else's vehicle. That's the very definition of stealing.

You didn't "find" the money, you took it.

Cherry - I'm having trouble following this. Why do you think you've been "told on", and the video has been watched? Is it just a feeling, or did someone tell you this?

Going through someone else's car and stealing from it is just slimy. It's also categorized as a crime. There could be jail time for it.
