Hi reddit. Throwaway for obvious reasons...
So I'm kind of in a daze right now and I am not really sure how to handle what just happened.
As I was getting ready for work this morning, I caught my girlfriend going through my wallet and taking out money. I was in the shower at the time and the TV in our bedroom was on. When I turned the shower off I grabbed a towel and walked back into the bedroom to get changed for work. When I opened the bathroom door I saw her standing over my nightable with my wallet in hand and she had removed some of the $20's I had in there. (I guess she couldn't hear me over the TV or something).
I kind of yelled and was like "what the fuck are you doing?".
She jumped and dropped my wallet back on the nightable. I yelled some more I guess and said that she shouldn't be stealing from me and that if she had wanted money she would either have to ask, or get a job (she doesn't have a job).
She got mad at me yelling and said that I'm an asshole and it isn't that big of a deal. She walked past me into the bathroom and locked herself in and I could hear her crying.
I left for work without saying anything else.
When I get home today, what do I say to her? Like if she needed a few bucks for whatever I would have given her some but just taking it from my wallet seems wrong.
TL;DR Caught my live-in girlfriend taking money from my wallet. We yelled at each other and I left for work. What do I do?
EDIT: She's on the lease
EDIT 2: Holy fuck. We share one of our bank accounts. I just got a call that she tried withdrawing most of the money. The bank called because most withdrawals are usually only a few hundred bucks and she tried withdrawing over $4,000. The bank says the cannot do anything right now because technically it's her money too (since we share the account). Guys what the fuck do I do? I'm leaving work right now because I have to go to the bank. My brother is going to go to my place and try and take my important stuff.
