So I’ve been living in a youth hostel style place with a communal laundry room. Unsurprisingly I had clothing stolen, a lot of it at once. Nothing with great cash value, unless for weird t-shirt and sweatshirt collectors on e-Bay, just sentimental value. The night markets have provided cheap replacements.
However, I’ve got a likely suspect, a transient English teacher who came here looking for work, but left after getting a better job offer elsewhere. I got to know him a little and he told me he loves it here and wants to come back when his contract is up.
I’m thinking about telling the management at my place, who likes me and knows I’ve had stuff stolen, that this guy probably did it. I have no expectations of “justice” for my laundry, I just want to be mean. I thought about filing a report with the police so this clown might have a hard time getting back in to Taiwan, but figured they would ignore me.
So what do other Forumosans think? Is the petty revenge worth the trouble?
