Did my sister steal my money? An article by ask advice columnist online. We are talking about a thousand dollars,Did my sister steal from me? Articles given to me by my landlord because of a rebate regarding my rent. I have been waiting for this money so that I can go out and buy some much needed things for my home. A pair of curtains for the bedroom, a table for the kitchen. There are no curtains at all there now and the kitchen table is shaky and wobbly because one of it’s legs is too short. Nobody can repair it so it has to be replaced.
When the landlord gave me the money I put it in what I thought was a safe place, in one of my drawers at the back. Then for weeks I left it there waiting for a chance to get a whole day where I could walk around the shops and take a good look at things.

To make it worse my sister came back to see me a few days later showing off a new coat she had got. And no I did not put it somewhere else and remember it all wrong, I know for a fact I put i there. Now it was gone. Yet I had tried so hard to
I eventually brought myself to ask her about my money, I worded it very carefully and made sure I did not accuse her but of course but I did make sure that I did ask her and she said she knew nothing about it and acted all innocent. This is the problem. When you accuse someone you alienate them and they hate you and get angry with you even if they are guilty so in a way accusing them or asking them does not find out a thing and makes things worse.
