        Hi Guys and Dolls,

        Suppose someone you knew without your knowledge took cash out of your purse/wallet. It was the cash needed to pay your mortgage. Too late to recover it, because the person already spent it and its gone.

        Several months later this SAME person who stole your cash is at local pub your at. You notice a wad of cash falls out of his pocket. Ironically it is just about the same amount of cash that was stolen from you. The cash was needed for a down payment for a new care he so desperately needed. Without the car he would not be able to take the new job offered to him out of town. A job that took many months to find.

        Would you return the cash......or would you retaliate and feel justified for having your cash stolen and keep it?

        I'd have to give give it to him, if i kept it i'd feel on
        the same level as him.. a thief, or some kind of guilt would
        overtake me and that on the shoulders just isn't worth it.
        Though so very tempting, i'd still feel so terrible taking it.

        Lips I need some clarity here, did I know for sure they were the one that took my money? 

        If so, several months later I wouldn't be worried about it because I would have already got my money back in one way or another.

        "Today, most of the good people are afraid to be good. They strive to be broadminded and tolerant. It is fashionable to be tolerant but mostly tolerant of evil and this new code has reached the proportions of demanding intolerance of good."

        I'd give it back but I might say "wish the person who stole from me was as honest"

        This is a good question of ethics and just how we might react in situations hopefully we'll never be in.

          You guys are just too nice.  Because the minute I was sure who took the money, I would be at their door, in their house and I am sure I could find something, or several things that I thought were equivalent to the amount of money that was taken and then we would be even. 
          As far as the money that fell out of his pocket, I definitely wouldn't say anything to him about it.  I wouldn't even touch it and in the back of my mind hope some1 will pick it up and keep it.  hehe!!!

          I think I'll go with Shelli on this one.

        I may not take the money myself, but I sure wouldn't tell him it fell out of his pocket.
        I would hope some bum would pick it up and then he can feel how it feels to have something stolen/not returned to him.

        If I knew he was for sure the person that stole my money, I tell you this, he would not have very many good days with me hounding him all the time, and making his life hell for what he did to me.

        Being stolen from? Will not tolerate it.  I worked to hard for the few things I have in life and I'll be damned if someone is gonna steal it from me.

        I don't think i could take it. Karma would surely come back to haunt me. As crazy as this may sound, i would have empathy that he could not buy the car!

        Because of me he would have no car and no job. I just wouldn't want that on my shoulders.

        I do not believe in stealing, but if he stole it from me, then I would just look at it as a return of my loss, not stealing.

        No bad karma here..and I DO believe in Karma..
