First let me start by saying, I don't care if this is mean, I just want to know if you think it is

So I work at UPS overnight loading trucks, and usually get out around 3-4AM. It takes about 20 minutes to get home and if I were to take the bus, it'd probably be over an hour. I work with this guy who's younger than me (19 years old) and I don't want to say he's my friend but we do talk a lot when we work together. He lives a few blocks from me, so I used to drive him home once in a while. A couple of weeks ago he told me that he used to rob people for money, phones, wallets etc... That's one of the very few things I will not tolerate. He doesn't do it anymore apparently, but he did do it, and that's all that matters to me. So after that night, I made an excuse that I go to the gym every night after work and I will not drive him home ever again. Tonight it's snowing really bad in NY, supposed to get over a foot of snow and I got great joy out of him having to walk to the bus stop (15 minute walk) and take the bus home. I HATE ghetto people, especially if they steal. He steals from his job that he works from now, so it's not like he's changed into a nice person. He always begs me or tries to pay me to drive him home. I know I'm not the police or god, but I have the power to make him pay for what he did in my own way

+3 Bruh what the fudge. So just because someone use to do bad things in the past marks them a bad person for life? Even though not only do they no longer do it. They were held accountable for their actions one way or other.

And i thought I was the mentally ill person... You have issues. What you did was flatout wrong. why is what he did in the past relevant now? Why does it even matter? It's not like he would rob you or anyone else again.(I hope, i don't think he'd do it again. If he's telling you now about what he use to do) Furthermore, it's not your place to "punish" someone for the wrong they do. Especially if it's not any wrong to you.

You're just being an butthole about something that has nothing to do with you. And about something he likely already suffered the consequences of. He doesn't need a double KO.

@shini: Did you not read where I said "he still steals from his job"? I'm not letting a thief into my car, it is my place to "punish" someone, it's my car. He didn't suffer any consequences, he just happened to stop. Imagine you have a job, work really hard and buy a nice phone or a really nice watch. Now imagine someone comes, beats you up and takes those things that you worked hard for. This is that guy, and if you think I should feel bad for someone like that, then you're pathetic.

People that steal and hurt people don't deserve any respect and should be treated like dirt

+2 @kevqn: Uhm.
"**A couple of weeks ago he told me that **he used to** rob people for money, phones, wallets etc...**"
"**He doesn't do it anymore apparently**"

No where in your post you mention he STILL CURRENTLY steals from the job both of you work at.
Also, remember the old saying; 'You reap what you sow?'
Did he tell you he never suffered any consequences?
No one in the real world actually gets away with doing wrong, and gets to live the rest of their lives without suffering the consequences. The real world actually doesn't work that way

Naturally the example you given I'd be upset or angry. However again even if he had the past of a serial killer... What you're doing is wrong & it wouldn't justify anything. Like I said it's not your place to treat someone like that just because they've use to do wrong.
If he doesn't do any wrong RIGHT NOW and/or to doing wrong to YOU. There's no good reason for you to be acting this way towards him.

ANNDD ever heard of a little something called "forgiveness"? Even though you literally have nothing to forgive him for since he didn't even do anything to you.
Just because someone use to do bad things & they no longer do it as time passes... They don't deserve to be treated like trash in the future.

@shini: I wrote "He steals from his job that he works from now, so it's not like he's changed into a nice person. "
So he still is a thief and doesn't deserve any compassion. He said he stopped jumping people because he got a job.. that doesn't excuse him at all

I wouldn`t drive him home either, especially since he has a job, it just shows he isn`t like some hobo and that he can get the money/things he`d steal without stealing them, meanwhile some hobos may not be able to.

Plus if he steals all that stuff, he likely has more then enough money to buy a car.

+1 could you not say "he doesnt do it anymore apparently" because that is very misleading

also, it's not mean, because it's your car and you're not obligated to give anyone a ride, especially if he has done or is doing something you disagree with
