Has anyone encountered a situation where you had to stop being friends with someone due to that person’s poor character?
I have a bi-polar friend (in his late forties) who’s okay as a person, but then sometimes acts as if he has the mind of a 12-year-old kid.
Just recently he bought a cell phone that might have been stolen. Instead of turning it in to the police, he keeps it regardless of the fact that the person who owned the smart phone turned off the phone’s service.
I told my “friend” that the smart phone has a tracking device and if the guy who owns it turns it on and finds out where he lives, he could be seen as having stolen the phone. And my friend gets mad at me and says what is he going to do call the phone police? Technically my “friend” could get arrested for buying stolen property.
What would you do in this situation? I’m under the impression my bi-polar friend has to be thrown in jail before he wises up and takes responsibility for his life.
