544. Gayle shared a workplace locker with Dina. Dina left work early one day. Running late for an appointment, she failed to relock the locker. Gayle went to the locker later that day. Her purse was gone. She told her boss. Her boss called Dina. Dina said she must have forgotten to relock the locker. The boss called Manhattan's 10th Precinct police. The next day, Gayle told Dina, "My $1,400 Versace purse is gone. Not to mention everything that was in it. You should do the right thing, without my having to ask you." Dina said, "The right thing? Well, I apologize, if that's what you mean. But I'm not buying you a new purse. It's not my fault it's missing. You should have done the right thing in the first place." Gayle said, "Me? What should I have done?" Dina said, "You should have left your fancy purse at home!" 2.5
