Can you advise this student nurse?
“There is a girl in my study group who I’ll call Kate. I don’t know Kate super well but she’s always been nice to me.
“Last week the rest of our group was busy so it was just me and her studying in my room. During this time I left for a couple minutes to get us a snack from the kitchen. When I came back she was looking through one of my drawers. I was mad at her for snooping but she said the drawer was already open (I’m almost sure it wasn’t) and she apologised.
“She seemed genuinely sorry so I let it go but later I couldn’t find one of my bracelets. I figured I had just lost it until this week when I saw it on Kate’s wrist. I know she doesn’t have the same one because it was from a little shop back home, not a chain.
“I confronted her about it and she got really defensive and called me a liar. I don’t know what to do now. The bracelet isn’t a huge deal, I don’t want to get her in trouble just for that, but I worry if she’d steal and lie about that she might steal and lie about other things. I don’t know if I should talk to someone about this or just let it go.”
