WARNING: LONG-ISH POST
I have 2 room mates and at least 1 of them and I always put our receipts in a pile.
Anyways, my taiwanese gf decides to match them up. I've already said in the past that I don't care about the receipts because I've never won (been here 5 years) so it's not worth my time. Anyways, she notices a bunch outdated and throws them away. Some are not and turns out there are 2 200nt winners. We both look at the 2 winning receipts and it's obv that neither one of them could be mine. Then she asks if she could keep them. I said no and she gets mad. I told her how am I supposed to give her something that isn't mine. Her response was that it's been sitting there so long and no one's matching them and a bunch is expired anyway. If she leaves it there, it'll probably go expired anyway. I then told her that my roommates and I already agreed to whoever wants to match it up can do it (and split it, but I didn't say the splitting part to her), but we're all just pretty lazy. I also said it didn't matter because it's not hers and taking it would be stealing. She says it isn't stealing because she's telling me. I said it's not mine, how can I give permission? Anyways, she feels she's entitled to it because it was just going to sit being wasted and she matched them up. She's all pissed now and says ok, she'll just put them all together and put it back where she found them and let it sit there. I'm not allowed to tell my room mates and since I don't care about them, I can't look at them either.
What am I supposed to do here? Tell her to split it? Does she even want to? She never suggested it. A few months back, she did the same thing and found 2 200nt winners and kept it all for herself after she said she'd redeem it for me, but then asked to keep it (again, it was obv neither of those 2 receipts were mine neither). I know I said I didn't care about it, but last time it was mixed with my roommate(s) too. I totally forgot about it this time or I woulda said don't match them up.
