Your opinion

Last night Hubby and I went to one of our favorite restaurants for supper. It is a Country Club so early in the evening there are a lot of golfers celebrating or soothing themselves from their game. We have frequented this place long enough for them to know us by name. While sitting there a woman golfer (whom I had seen there before) with three other people at a table in front of us was drinking a beer and when she finished she remarked about the glass and slipped it in her purse.
Now I have a problem with this because I consider that
but then it is only a glass so I sit and wrestle with this through my dinner. It is no skin off my nose if she steals a glass but then if I have seen her do that and say nothing doesn't that make me part of it. That is what would be thought if it were a serious crime of some sort.......so what to do.

 I decided that just because I saw something didn't mean I had to take it home with me so I went up to the bartender, told her what I saw and that I was leaving it for her to either care about  or not care about. Now my hubby didn't really agree with my decision so maybe I should followed that other view...

It was only glass.

I think you did the right thing. After all, the establishment had to purchase the glassware, and if everyone took glasses, they would have to raise their prices to cover the loss.

Well you left it at the restaurant...that was a good place to leave it...now its not your worry....:))

Seeing as how you did what you thought was best....then you did the right thing. It is stealing and if you had went home and not said anything, I am sure it would have bothered you a bit.

Well I agree with you - but the management is not going to say anything to offend them.

July 16, 2012 I posted a Question of the week titled Crimes and Misdemeanors on this very subject. I went back to see what you said you would have done and lo and behold you had not commented which is very unusual. So you must read it now to see what others said on this very subject. I believe you did the best anyone could have done under the circumstances. Leaving it to the restaurant was a good decision.

You did the right thing. The restaurant may let it slide, but it's up to them.

You did the right thing, I would have done the same.

I think you did the right thing. The country club probably won't confront her, but you'll know you did the right thing. Everyone else eventually pays for that kind of theft.

I would have to fight the urge to say something within her hearing range the next time I saw her, something like "Look, that is the woman who stole the glass the last time we were here".

I know that isn't the way to handle things, but that would be my first reaction the next time I saw her.
