November 22

Here is a 'What would you do?" scenario I need help with:

While Teen was in Alabama my friend Heidi flew down as her son was also on the robotics team. Before Teen had a chance to buy a Souvenir T-Shirt she bought one for him. She also bought one for another friends child and her own son. Heidi's son didn't have a backpack with him and put it in one of the other kids backpacks.

Unfortunately the other kids backpack was stolen. They were able to find it later, but it had been cleaned out.

So here is my dilemma. Teen didn't buy a shirt because Heidi bought him one. Her son no longer has a shirt cause the backpack was stolen. And it wasn't discovered until after Heidi was on the flight home and was unable to buy another one.

So what would you do?

I don't think I'd do anything, unless Teen really wants to give it back. The loss had nothing to do with him, and it wasn't discovered until he couldn't get another, either, which he would have, if he could.. I don't think there's any really good reason to give it back... and I always err on the side of being nice!!

I'd let my teen decide. I know you feel badly that her sons was stolen but if I put myself in her position (Heidi's)...I would not expect nor want another child to give up theirs. Would you?

Oh...that previous comment is me...Shannon. Didn't realize which account I was logged in as. Sorry :)

Is there a way you could contact the folks in Alabama to see about ordering a tee-shirt for the friend?
