Dear Miss Pearl,
I invited my best friend to a party given by the
daughter of my mom's best friend. This lady has a lot of money and I was already
a little uncomfortable about bringing my friend because she can get ghetto when
she wants too.
I took her because she begged me to since she wanted to
meet some of the basketball players and local newscasters who would be there. I
told her that I would take her, but I wanted to make sure that she wouldn't show
her a ss, so I made her promise.
All in all, it was a GREAT night and I
was proud of her for not going off, even when one of the ladies kept asking if
she wanted to "work at the mall forever". I told her that I would have gone off,
so she was really good to keep her composure.
So, the next day, we are
going to the mall and she shows me this really nice watch that I know she can't
afford on her own. I asked her where she got it from and she told me that she
went into the bedroom of the host of the party and "found it" on her bathroom
When I told her that she was wrong for taking something that didn't
belong to her, she went off saying that my mom's friend was rich and probably
didn't even miss it. But Miss P, I know that watch cost about $1000 but she
My mom mentioned to me that Mrs. Williams told her that she
is suing the caterer because she thinks that one of the set-up crew stole her
watch and she refuses to pay them the remainder of their fees because of
I told my friend and she says that she doesn't care and doesn't
understand why I are about people I don't know.
How can I make her
understand that she is wrong and get my mom's friend her watch
make your friend understand that what she did is wrong because she's ghetto and
she's a thief, so all I can suggest is that you do let her know that either
she'll give you the watch so that you can send it to your mother's friend
anonymously - or you will tell her who has it and she can send the police to her
house to pick up the watch and cart her ghetto a$$ off to jail in the
True ghetto people only speak ghetto, so you have to come down
to her level. Let her a$$ know that she's going to do what's right, or you're
droppin' dime on her hood a$$.
Expect your friendship to end over this if
she doesn't do what's right, but she put you in a precarious situation by coming
to this lady's house with you and then walking off with something that didn't
belong to her.
Tell that hoe she'll give it up one way or
