Screw that man. She owes
you 250 bucks. No if's, and's, or but's about it. It is the exact
same thing as gaining access to your paypal
account and buying a Louis Vuitton purse off of eBay for 250$, or taking 250$ off of your dresser and pissing it away at the dog track. Another analogy that may bring it into context is this; I play a lot of live poker, up until a few weeks ago exclusively, and I also gamble a lot all the time so I have a decent amount of cash at my house usually. The situation you described is no different than me leaving the key accidentally inside my lock-box after taking some money out and her stumbling upon it and removing 250 dollars to spend at the mall. The above examples are stealing
, same as her losing the money in your poker account.
That money in your poker account is just that, in an account
. It is there so you can use it to play, let it sit, or withdrawl it for bills or rent. What she did is take
250 dollars from you and piss it away.
If I were you, this chick would not, under any circumstances, be allowed back into my place again...ever. The only way I would ever even consider allowing her back into my home is if she repaid the 250$ and apologized to me, admitting what she did was theivery. If she couldn't come up with the 250 bucks, I would write her off completely and never speak to her again. There are two charactar traits that I absolutely cannot stand nor will I tolerate out of a friend; stealing is one, and lying is the other. Both are pointless and totally scumbag things to do. I hope you're able to get this situation resolved, and if not, I hope that you handle it appropriately. Don't forget, this person is a thief, plain and simple.
