My mobile is lost, I searched everywhere but in vain, then recentlyI saw that with my best friend, the mobile was hiding in her locker, When I asked her she was stunned and very ashame, I hate her for doing so. I don't want to talk to her anymore. What would you do in my place?

You could try listening to her explanation although I don't see what possible reason she could have for taking your phone other than wanting to steal it and surely that is not an ingredient for a good friendship. I would talk to her, listen to her side of the story and more than likely cut all ties. Trust is paramount in a friendship and it not a real one without it.

Yes!It is always good to ask her explanation first.As she is a best friend,she might not have stolen it.I think she would have done it for fun or somebody should have done it to break your friendship.So,don't run into hasty decisions.Cheers!

It's the end of the friendship, its not just about the stealing thing but also the betrayal that she did..

If you say is true, then I think you have him as your friend, but he does not think so, if a friend stole your cell phone, I think you will feel more sad, because,after all, mobile phones value can be measured by money, but friendship between friends are not able to use money to measure,it is in his mind the friendship between you is only equivalent to the price of a cell phone, so it? This is pathetic to see such a friend,i think you should not to travel with him at all.

And she betrayed me by violating my trust. I am sad but I think she will realise it too.

Did you talk to her, or did you just gave her a cold shoulder immediately after? At least try to find out if she really took it intentionally...of course, I guess she did, or why would it be in her locker? Sounds like she could not be trusted after all. I understand how you feel. If I were in your place, I would also be embarrassed having to confront a friend. But it would take a lot of courage for her to accept the misdeed, so you have to find the right timing to confront her with it. You really have to, if only to salvage whatever friendship you have built through the years.

I talked to her and she was very ashamed seh could not give me a reasonble excuse or explanition, And I was angry because I trusted her a lot and she even does not have any explanation for that.

Thats a big shame. I would do the samething to her, I wouldn't talk to her anymore. That person shouldn't be trusted and you claimed her as your former bestfriend? Wow, I wonder what was her reason for doing that to you.

I prefer to not talk to her now. She deserves that.

What I would do in this situation is ask why she did it. If she says "idk" then be done with her. But if she gives a thorough GOOD explanation that YOU can understand, then you should forgive her, but be more wary around her.

She was unable to give a proper or reasonable explanation and I was very angry, I will not talk to her now.

I will charge her for that.Our profession needs the phone and if someone stole it, she should be reprimanded for it specially all the important people are listed in the phonebook of that phone

What a bad news! It is a difficult question. Because on one hand she is your best friend, but on the other hand she stole your mobile phone. If I were you, perhaps I will contact her less in the future because she lost my trust. How could she steal my mobile phone when she was my good friend? This is something wrong about her personality. I love China

Instead of looking directly at a stealing issue. Why not see the big picture? What happen that led her to stealing the phone? Is it lack of money, family problems, conflict problems, depressing issues? I know of people who had done things but later totally regret it. All I can say that the person of sound mind who knows that they done wrong, will definitely feel much worse off than you. But the other party didn't really give them the opportunity and time to speak or hear their full heart-to-heart story. The thing now is not to get worked up, but to stay calm. Who wouldn't be angry? I will. But it is about understanding the full story, and empathise her, meaning to be able to put yourself into her shoes. If you are able to hear her heart out, and finding a solution to the problem. Not only will she will respect you, others around you will admire you for your ability to work things out and respect you even more. Trust can be regained.
