People truly piss me off

We had a party for dd today, and someone thought they needed dh's new game more than him. Really idiot. Break your probation for a video game?

We knew exactly who it was. A friend saw him acting shifty, remove his sweatshirt. After the party, we noticed it was missing. We were hoping a child picked it up and moved it. Yeah, no. I went to the local game store, bought a new copy, and spoke to the manager. Our guest had just traded in that game. He doesn't have an Xbox 1, so why would he have the game. Also, his wife saw it in the car.

Eta: we had him arrested. I know I should have put that in my original post, but I hadn't finished my coffee. I know, petty to have him arrested over a video game, but it's more the principle. You try to give someone a break, and they kick you in the teeth. No, it's not naivety. I was trying to give him a chance. Thankfully we will be getting the money back from the second game, and he did break his probation, so back in jail with you. I feel for his wife, truly.

We knew exactly who it was. Only 1, and he's a friend's husband. A friend saw acting shifty, but I wanted to believe that the children misplaced it. I knew it wasn't true, but that's what I wanted

Stop inviting criminals into your home. Problem solved.

Theft wasn't his problem before. We took precautions for everything else. It wasn't a violent crime either

Well, theft is obviously a problem for him now. If you invite him back again after this, you're an idiot.

The police did. I told his wife, while I was still in the store buying another copy, that I was calling the police.

I'm curious...what was he on probation for?
