Have had 2 days off due to a stomach bug. Before I left work on the Monday I had placed my copper jar on my desk, any spare money goes in, not just coppers. It is a small office and everyone is very close - no trust issues.
I am using this jar to save some cash for my May holiday even if it's just £50.
Today I come in to find a note in my jar saying "I owe you 70p ,needed it for my bus".
This girl has form for never returniing borrowed items and I'm a bit fed up that she thought she could just help herself to my cash. I know it's only 70p but it's the principal, if I had left my purse would she have gone in there? Of course I've not mentioned anything to her but I feel like Im being unreasonable for being so fucked off!
I and my colleagues often ask each other for change. If any of them had a coin jar open on their desk, I would assume it could be used for swapping eg a pound coin for smaller coins, or, in case of need, swapping 70p in coins for an IOU.
I don't see anything fundamentally unreasonable in doing that.
