Let some random guy I smoked with listen to my mp3 player and he never gave it back.
    #11323112 - 10/26/09 10:55 AM (7 years, 11 months ago)

So I dropped into a smoke circle and we smoked a couple of bowls.

This big black guy seemed pretty chill and I let him listen to a couple of songs on my mp3 player. He gave it back to me after listening for a while and I decided to show him some more music I had.

Well I forgot to ask for it back and if I remember correctly he still has it. He seemed like a pretty good guy not the type to steal other peoples shit. I guess I trust people to much.

Anyways I asked around and I found out his name is marcees (I don't know how to spell his ghetto ass name.) I'm going to confront him soon and I know how important it is to catch him at the right time and say the right words.

Should I catch him alone?

Should I act all chill like a freind
or
Should I be interrogating?

Keep in mind he is a big black guy (slightly chubby) but I am pretty sure I could still kick his ass If I had too. I would rather not start shit though.


I'm thinking of just telling him I know he has it and it would be cool if he could just give it back. If he denies it I will just reasure him that I know he has it or had it last. I don't want to make threats or anything but this is a 200 dollar zune we are talking about here.

What would you guys do in this situation?

I'd try and ask him for it, you say he seemed like a pretty chill guy so you never know. However, if he denies having it, chalk it up to a lesson learned because you're not getting it back.

Start out by having absolutely no blame on him, act like
the whole thing was your fault.  Say something along the
lines of:

"Hey Marcees, stupid me forgot to get my mp3 player
back from you the other day when we smoked."

At that point, if he denies it, you can start to point
fingers but just assume he completely forgot to give
it back just as you forgot to get it back.

"Hey man, remember when we were hanging out at x's house, smoking doobs, and I was showing you songs on my ipod?  Well, I think I forgot to ask for it back, and you still have it.  Could I get it back?"

"I dont know what you're talking about, I don't have any ipod."

"Listen man, you can't even charge without spending $15 to buy a charger for my ipod.  Just give it back because the battery's nearly dead anyway."

"okay.  Here's a blow job for beating around the bush"

Problem solved.

even if you can prove he had it last he'll say he let someone else borrow it, or gave it to someone who said they knew you and would give it back to you (none of these are good excuses but he'll pretend they are).  he'll say a lot of things if he doesnt want to give it back, but unless you know he has it on him right then and there, theres no way you're getting it back if he's on the defensive and has decided to keep it.

if he intended to keep your zune, you arent getting it back. if it was an accident, theres a good chance it'll be returned.

but i was never the best with this kind of thing anyway. never won in these situations. but thats what i would do.

a couple years back some asshole took my iPod and PSP when I let him crash on my couch. fucker had the gall to blame it on some other kid who came by while i was asleep (he's one of my brothers friends). anyway, it was clearly him, but no amount of accusation, threats, or anything else got my shit back.

Walk up to him and start a conversation.
see if he brings it up
if he doesn't after a few minutes, I'd bring it up and
go in for the kill

One time a friend of mine jacked my friends laptop computer when we crashed in his living room. I didn't find out til later, but iwas pissed to say the least. I fucking hate thieves. If dude is cool he should just give it bAck. Don't just assume he's a dishonest asshole just because he's a large black guy.

It's funny you say his name is Marcees.

I don't know how to spell it either but I had a big black
friend in Middle School who was named Marcees and he
was the jolliest guy I knew.  He sold pr0n mags to kids.

Marquis maybe?

i didnt assume he was a dishonest asshole just because he's a large black guy, i assumed he was a dishonest asshole when he walked off with the dudes Zune (which is understandable if you're stoned) but if he doesnt bring it up immediately upon meeting with poptart then he probably intended to keep it. which makes him a dishonest asshole.

I am good at talking both ways.

I can sweet talk a person to death or I can look you straight in the eyes and scare the shit out of you.

So I will play nice guy first then I will pull my death-stare intimidation skills later if he doesn't give way.

I'm getting that shit back.

This is not hard. "Hey, when I lent you my mp3 player I forgot to ask for it back. Can I have it back, thanks"

or "Hey, I can't find my mp3 player and I was with you the last time I saw it, do you know where it is"

if it were me i would not even hint at the possibility that I lost it, otherwise he may say "i dont have it, maybe you just lost it" and then you cant say "theres no way I lost it" because you've already hinted that its a possibility

A.) better to catch him alone than with a group of people you don't know.

Quote:


Should I act all chill like a freind
or
Should I be interrogating?






If you are interrogating, then that wouldn't be cool, and chances are, if I were in his shoes, I would keep it if someone came to the assumption that I stole it.

B.) Just be chill like you were before and ask for it back.

C.)If he doesn't give it back, then you can kick his ass.

Refer back to A.)


This is why you want to catch him alone.

Why are you so quick to accuse him? You were smoking weed right? He probably got real high and forgot about it. I do stuff like that all the time.
