“I was seeing red. My parents used to get me a stuffed animal as a souvenir every time we traveled to another country growing up.”
“He literally donated hundreds of dollars worth of one-of-a-kind stuffed animals that I can only get from other countries.”
Luckily, she was able to get her stuffed animals back from the shelter. Later that evening, she was eating dinner with that friend who stole her stuffed animals and some of their other friends.
Every friend at the table sided with her friend who dumped her stuffed animals at the shelter and insisted it was creepy of her to even own them.
“I was originally paying for the whole dinner so we wouldn’t have to have separate checks, and they were going to Venmo me,” she continued.
” After this happened, I decided to just pay for my food and leave, forcing them all to scramble figuring out how to pay.”
She’s left wondering if maybe it was wrong of her to then refuse to pay, all because her friends defended this guy and what he did to her.
Here’s what the internet had to say.
“Your friend literally stole from you, and not just that but stole items with significant sentimental value, and then said you’re the weird one??”
“And your other friends agreed with him?? Get a new friend group cause that one is trash…They’re stuffed animals man it’s not…’creepy’ or whatever, plenty of people collect them well past childhood.”
“I have a small collection that I buy from museums and aquariums when I travel and I’m a 25yo man.”
