Thursday night my phone got stolen from my house and the charger then Saturday night whilst I was sleeping in my bed someone snuck into my bedroom and took my ghd straightners off of my bed side. I know who took the GHD's for definite but am gutted, my phone and 100 pounds also gone, so now I don't want anyone in my house specially tonight. AIBU? People seem to think I should hide things in my own home.

Who took your things?

TunipTheHollowVegemalLantern Wed 31-Oct-12 13:16:43

Bloody hell, that's awful! Who has been in your house?

You need different friends. Friends don't steal from you. Don't let these people in your ouse again ever

StuntGirl Wed 31-Oct-12 13:17:11

Are these your friends stealing things? I would go bloody crazy. And I wouldn't just ban them from coming into my house, I would ditch then as they are shitty friends and find better ones who I can trust.

I don't get it. Who are all these random people wandering in and out of your house while you sleep? confused

safflower Wed 31-Oct-12 13:17:33

That is terrible. And you think you know who has done this? One of your DC? Or their friends? Let them all know you are calling the police if stuff not returned. and NO YANBU

im assuming that this is dc's friends stealing from you? If so no yanbu to not have anyone in the house.

NotQuintAtAllOhNo Wed 31-Oct-12 13:20:31

Who is stealing from you?

Friends?
Your kids?

DistressedMumHELP Wed 31-Oct-12 13:20:44

I had a small party, two friends stayed cos they live far away, I know which one it was. I am not speaking to them, one of ky friends offered to buy me a new pair but its principle as well. I won't be letting them back in.

In your situation you really do need to be careful about who you are letting into your life. People who steal from you are not your friends.

From other threads I think you are not very good at choosing safe friends sadly. Yes I do think your friends shouldn't sleep at your house.

You said you know who took one lot - who was it? How do you know?

Tell us who you have sleeping in your house and how often?

Are any of these friends drinking or using when there?

Do any of these friends have a criminal record and or are violent?

I am quite concerned about your decision making abilities at the moment. I think you are completely reasonable keeping anyone you don't want away from your house. This is normal and ok.

squeakytoy Wed 31-Oct-12 13:22:30

sad Sorry OP, but it seems you are not learning any lessons at all about who you are friends with.

NotQuintAtAllOhNo Wed 31-Oct-12 13:23:57

Maybe keep better company and stop throwing parties at your house?

Where were your kids in all this?

DistressedMumHELP Wed 31-Oct-12 13:28:19

Well they were two good friends, they have stayed once before but since September no one has stayed. One friend outed the other and they didn't deny it buy ignored me. No one I am aware of uses drugs but some do drink but don't have a problem.

TunipTheHollowVegemalLantern Wed 31-Oct-12 13:28:46

Yes, don't let people stay. If you're bad at judging who's honest and who's not that is all the more reason to draw a line.

NotQuintAtAllOhNo Wed 31-Oct-12 13:29:28

"Since September noone has stayed". It is still October. What is your home, a party palace? Drunken den?

Do your children live with you in this environement?

DistressedMumHELP Wed 31-Oct-12 13:30:27

And no drugs are allowed at mine unless they are prescription meds

DistressedMumHELP Wed 31-Oct-12 13:31:57

I have had one party, a friend's birthday/halloween, there was no alcohol but lots pf snacks etc.

Cahoots Wed 31-Oct-12 13:33:11

Why don't you call the police.

EscapeInTheCity Wed 31-Oct-12 13:34:24

YANBU.
And I would seriously consider reviewing your list of friends and check if they are 'real' friends or just using you.

squeakytoy Wed 31-Oct-12 13:53:04

YABU simply because your other thread is highly relevant to this. It isnt considered "good form" to link to other threads, and I shant do it, but it is rather unfair on other posters that do not know your current circumstances for them to make replies without knowing the issues surrounding your life.

How come your other "friends" don't have a problem with the thief ?

Sounds like they are criminals.
