ok. one of my very close friends was going to steal a bag of skittles from the school servery.
right under my nose.
right in front of me.
no big deal, right?
i was ticked.
"where did the skittles go?"
"i put them back".
"did you really?"
"no i don't think you did, you haven't moved. and they're not back in the basket. are you trying to steal them?"
"no. you can't do that. i won't let you."
"big deal, i know i can get away with it."
"i don't care. it's wrong".
so i gave him the money to pay for the skittles. cost me money...but i couldn't just walk away knowing that there were skittles in his pocket that he hadn't paid for. not on my watch.
afterwards, another friend was like "you're just going to have to let it go. it's their decision. just leave it alone". and well...she's kinda right. it is their choice. but i can't just stand there and do nothing. that's like saying i don't care, or worse, saying that i approve. and i don't. i don't think that's right, and i don't want anyone doing that. especially not my close friends. because stealing now...that can just continue on and on, until it truly gets to be a big problem with the law or something.
as far as i'm concerned, he shouldn't be doing that. and i won't stand to watch that. but i can't just turn my back and pretend i don't see, when he obviously did it right in front of me. some people may think that's cool or whatever...not me. total opposite, in fact.
i trusted this guy. i knew he did this...but i never though he would do it in front of me. or lie to me about doing it, in fact. it hurts that he would lie to me...and it hurts that he would do this in the first place.
am i taking this too seriously? most people say i am...that i have too strong of morals, that i just need to let it be.
but i can't seem to let it go! and in some ways...i don't want to let it go. i won't just leave him and not talk to him anymore, he's a friend and i love him. but i can't just ignore this...
