no good deed goes unpunished
So this guy i hardly know asks me to watch two bags of clothes for a day because he's moving or something. I hesitated but then he went into some song and dance that it was only for a day. The next day he fails to show up. Fast forward five days, the guy still hasn't returned, so i put them in a box by the dumper. That was two days ago and today he shows up (i was not there) and says that he's going to return.
I called the cops and they said i haven't done anything criminally wrong, but that he could sue me (i checked bailment law and i believe its on my side, because he failed to show up). Fuck.
Cessante causa, cessat effectus.
