Ok, tell me if this is not just a little rude; February 2nd was my friend April's birthday-she lives something of a cinderella life and her family doesn't have much money. I knew that she wouldn't get much from her parents (if anything) and I wanted this year to be better than last year (which was terrible for her). I decided that I wanted to get her something really nice-something that she would definetly not be getting from her parents or any of her friends and something that she would really appreciate. I picked out a pearl necklace for her (11 graduated white pearls on a white gold chain), it was about $350. Her birthday came and went and she seemed to really love them. Unfortunately they're not exactly something one wears to school so I never got to see her in them. My birthday was 1 week ago, about two days before that she came up to me after school and said "Listen, I can't accept these-they're too expensive and I don't get to wear them that much and you don't have that much money these days so you should take them back." She then tried to give them back to me-naturally I said "They're yours, keep them." I figured this was just a courtesy b/c someone had told her how much they were a few days before this. She never brought it up again so I assumed all was well. Then, this thursday, I opened a drawer on my computer desk to find them hidden behind one of my books there! The only people who had come over since April talked to me was a couple friends of mine (Jason & Cory) on the night of my birthday. After a long coaxing I got the truth out of the two of them b/c I wasn't able to get ahold of April that night. Apparently, she was alot more serious than I had thought, she was to afraid to come up to me again and so she spoke to the two guys and they offered to take them and give them to me. So on the night of my birthday when they were over they decided that they didn't want to face me and so they snuck this necklace into my house and hid it in the drawer next to my desk! And then when I confronted them about it they started yelling at me because I was supposedly turning this into a bigger thing than it was. I'm not mad about this anymore, it's just disappointing that the three of them would be so immature about this whole situation. I just needed to tell someone... so in your opinion-did I overreact? or was my being angry about this warranted?
