People who just take something without asking...

okay, so I'm upset because I had some board games like scrabble, monopoly, connect 4 and a couple of others put up in a container out in my mom's shop. My dad got in there and start hunting through everything and now they are not there. i probably would have let him use them if he would have just asked. Because they were for kathryn to have for me and her to play with and now we have to replace them because they were there and now they are not. I know they are just games but it's just the principle of the thing. Don't you just hate when people (in general) just assume that because it's there they can mess with or take it home? There are some people even people that you do not know that will go through your stuff at your house when they are visiting and just take it without you knowing about it. meaning they didnt ask if they could borrow or if they could keep it. Have you ever ran across these people?

It is aggrivating when ppl do that. I always make sure to put things away where only I can get to them if their something I don't want anyone touching but I can see where it would have been nice if he'd asked first. b]!!Happy Turkey Day!! ~~AT PEACE WITHIN~~ **STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS**[/b]

I have put things away and these were put in a container in my mom's shop and my dad picked the lock at his house and got in itt. thanks for responding. Some people are snoopers and want to look around and they will look just becaus they think its on there property. Like the fact that I didn't grow up in that house for 24 years didn't mean anything. thanks for responding. merry christmas

I agree 100% with you,Nothing makes me more mad than someone taking something without permission.For example the kids at school (the irresponsible ones) will get in my binder and get pencils paper and anything else they need without asking.If they would have asked then i would have gave them what they needed.

We're not talking about just one thing or one small item. We are talking about someone who deliberately does it because they think they can

Generally everybody hate that type of people. In my sense i doesn't allow that type of persons. Because there is a reason, i had bad experience. My Classmate doesn't ask any thing, whatever it maybe like books, pendrive etc. Once she took my pendrive without my permission. I started searching for that. But no use. After two days she returned it.

these games have never turned back up and the container they were in was opened and all the games in them gone. I got upset with him because he deliberately got out there and got them after we told him not to get into the shop. Of course he never listens to us even if it is for his own good.

I sure agree with you that you are right getti8ng agree over sure nonchalant attitude, it is an attitude that my personality disapprove greatly, and am sure we must say it is really bad to just flop over someone thing and start to deal with them as if they are your own regardless of the level of relationship, if you care for this i will definitely let you know that i back you up for your petty reaction. happy lotting

I haven't had anyone do that to me. But not a lot of people visit me so, I guess I'm lucky. But I would be pretty mad if someone took something without asking. I guess there are some people who either have no respect for other people or they just don't car.

sounds like you need to have a chat with your dad! i do dislike people who do that but what i really dislike is people who borrow things and never return them! i know a guy who borrowed a book from me about twenty years ago and i never saw it again!

I've tried talking with my dad and he thinks that because it's on his property he has a right to go through it and nick pick and I don't think it' fair because we didn't do that with his stuff, which is probably what we should have been doing all along.

it sucks when you think that the people you could trust the most is the one you can't trust at all.

Why don't you just go ask your dad to return them, how mad can you get I mean he is your dad after all. Some people just compulsively grab things my brother is like that and he is far from being poor, I call him Matt the mooch...lol

first of all, it's not there at all. I've been back in the house and they are not there. This stuff was in my dad's house and he's going to make up excuses saying that because someone could easily break into that someone else took them. When it was him. Every time we've asked him about items that have been taken he just bucks up and makes that excuse. I've asked where several things were and he just kept gaving that excuse. Yet he usually knows where they are and he's not doing it to mooch, he's just doing it being he wants to be a n a hole. these weren't even in the house they were in a container out in my mom's shop in a place where he shouldn't have been able to find them. He is just doing this to get me upset. And it's worked. He took an old car that was in my name and was wrecked and hauled it off just because it was there on his property with no regard to asking me about letting it go and with no regard to the fact that the car was in my name. He done the same thing to my mom's patio set. It's a difficult situation to begin with. Thanks for your response. A normal person it would work for but not on him.

i've had people borrow books and dvds without asking (mainly family rather than friends), not deliberately i think, they just forget to say. which is ok. ish, except for the times that they borrowed library books by mistake and so i had fines to pay on them. pest.

these things are like my things are well. if you don't have them, but once had that means that you used them at one point and will likely use it again and therefore you actually need. That's why I get mad because it has costed me money when it comes to stuff he has just upped and decided to use without asking or take from his garage without asking if it was okay. Because you feel like you have to replace it and it's not fair because you could have saved that money if they would have just told you or asked you.

Oh boy do I..I hate to say it but there are some people I don't even want in my home because of that reason and If I do know they are coming I will try to put stuff up that might be taken. I used to sell Avon and about $100 worth of an order came up missing.. it was expensive stuff and I had a few people in and out of my home.It took Awhile but I found out who took it. I seen the exact same stuff at their house a little later on..and I was so disappointed and hurt that someone I thought wouldn't do that in a million years stole from me. I haven't trusted them since even though to my knowledge they haven't done it since and it has been 3 years it's just they broke that trust and I feel that it will be a long time to get it back if I even can..I also have some in-laws that go through my stuff with me sitting right there just pick things up and start riffling through it. annoys me to no ends but nothing I say makes them stop.

I understand that this was on his property but that still didn't give him the right to go through it. We didn't do that with his stuff when he was out screwing every female he could find out on magnolia. And he wants to got through and pack up what's left in my mom's shop. Well, I already found something as to why i don't want him packing. There was a small piece of packaging in a serran wrap that if you rolled it up in paper you would get a good smoke off of and I'm not talking ciggs. Anyways, i don't want him planting something in there and then having the cops down here to try to get us in trouble and get my little girl taken away from me. He would be that stupid. I've already had to threaten with calling his PO on him. He thinks that after him being in jail that he's all mocho mocho and i got news for him, it ain't what your peers think it is. he's only do this because he supposedly now wants to live in the shop when the house is still in good condition and he would still have to pay a payment regardless. He's talking about renting the house out, but yet he wouldn't let us inside to get the rest of our stuff out for the past year. Now, he says that because it's still there we must have not needed it to bad. well, hes got my games that we had bought, plus sold my mom's patio set, give the weight set to my brother( the one he got for my mom) and all because he claims we haven't been up there to get it. how can you get it if you are not let to get it. he stashed some of my sister things away up in the upstairs above the garage like her senior pictures and stuff and I would have never known about them if I hadn't went to look about something else. my sister's been gone for 10 years and i don't have much of her stuff left, but it brought more memories to me than it did him and I done told him that i wanted her stuff that was left. I know it sounds like I'm being selfish but if he's going to go through everything by goly I can be a B about it too.
