Don’t try to be the hero of justice if you don’t know what you’re doing.
There’s a reason why decisions based on prejudice are always wrong. It’s easy to think you’re doing the right thing, but when your reasoning is based on an assumption, you end up doing more harm than good. Which is why it’s always best to mind your own business.
Of course, in certain situations you have to act quick and it’s okay to do what you think is right. But, it’s important you understand that not every situation needs your help. Sometimes, you have to let things be if you don’t have enough knowledge. If you make conjectures in your head on what might be the case, that will ruin everything.
That’s exactly what happened with this woman. A while back, she asked Reddit if she was wrong for reporting a teenage girl for using her dad’s credit card. Now, while it may seem wrong, the woman didn’t know the girl’s side of the story. However, without considering this, she acted hastily and ended up doing something she shouldn’t have.
Read what she did below and see what the Redditors had to say.
AITA for telling cashier that wasn’t the girls credit card?
Key points to take from this story: It’s not your responsibility to unecessarily parent someone else’s child. It’s not your duty to act as the hero of justice when it’s not even needed. And it’s definitely not okay to poke your nose in other people’s business.
According to the majority, she was indeed the as*hole.
There are always two sides to a story.
Who gave her the authority?
A bit too much for sure.
That’s the right explanation.
