Am I Being Harsh?
January 19, 2009 10:02pm CST
The other day, one of my friend got herself in trouble when he car got broken by a thief. She lost her wallet which contained her id, credit cards and other important stuff. So, i offered her my sympathy, then, i asked her one important question as to why she left her bag in the car at the first place. She answer me by saying that she put her wallet in the shoes bag anyway, not at any obvious places. And I asked her, where did she put the shoe bag. And she said that she put at the back seat. Upon hearing that, i rolled up my eyes and wondered, how come smart people can be so ignorant sometimes. Did she knows that criminal don't stop and analyze what bag is that before they commit the crime, they juz do it......and i told her exactly that too..

Hey you were right and you were not harsh. Nobody wants to get robbed but you can't control people who do this things. So extra precaution is needed in securing possessions. I hope you also told your friend to be extra careful next time

Heh, I think highly of people who are themselves and who speak their mind. People can get offended when you act like that, but it's better to say what you're thinking than hide your true thoughts from people then let them out later and tell people that you think it behind the other persons back. I don't say anything about people unless I would say it to their face, and if I had a friend stupid enough to do that then I would tell them so and I wouldn't feel like I was being harsh, so neither should you. She did a stupid thing and trying to comfort her by telling her what she did was fine means she might just go and do it again. Its better to help her learn.
