Dear Miss Pearl,
My boyfriend's sister asked to borrow money from me on
three separate occasions when I first started talking to him and, even though he
told me not to loan it to her, I did. She never repaid any of it and each time
she asked for more, I gave in because I wanted to get along with the family and
I thought that by loaning her money it would get me in good with her
After a while, I realized why he didn't want me to give her any
money - it was because she is a ghetto b itch who only uses people for their
money and then she talks real bad to you after she realize that she can't get
anymore money from you.
I started asking her about the money she owed me
when she kept asking for even MORE and then she started getting smart saying
stuff like, 'I ate at her mother's house, so she don't owe me
At one point, I really needed my money and I asked her to give
me $150 of the $420 she owes me and I would forget the rest and she told me that
I could just write it all off because she wasn't paying me for anything and then
she started telling me about all the cigarettes she gave me, the times she
dropped me off at work when my boyfriend had my car, etc.
So, the other
day, she came by my house with her brother and they went in my backyard to smoke
and never came inside. She called and asked me to look around my backyard to see
if I saw her wallet and when I went out there, I didn't see it
Yesterday, I went out in the back to let my dog out and I
started picking up cigarette butts and looked on the other side of the brick
wall she must have been sitting on and there was her wallet, with $138.00 in
Now you pretty much know where I'm going. Would I be wrong to keep
I don't condone stealing. If it's not yours, you don't take it.
The end. But in THIS situation, I'm inclined to make an exception. Is it
stealing? Technically, yes. But is this the only way you're going to EVER get
your ends back? Yep.
Should you take it? I'm not going to call it, I'm
just going to ask, WWJD? (would Walona & JJ Do It?)
I can't call this
one girl, because my heart is torn between doing the right thing and saying,
"Eff" it, early.
