Do you care to tattle on someone or do you think they will get what's coming to them later on in life?

Some times I feel like if I tattle on them then I like to see them get in trouble. I just would rather tell them to stop and see if they do. If they don't, I don't really tattle. i think after some time they will reap what they sow.

one example would be if someone stole from me. I would be like, don't steal anymore! then I would not tell anyone. If they don't, I am sure they will get in trouble with the law sooner or later.

What do you think?

  • Well, in some cases I guess I have to threaten them with tattling them.

  • If I'm really petty and strongly dislike the person then I'll tell, most of the time I just know they'll get what's coming for them

      so only if you strongly dislike them , so if you strongly like them then then you wouldn't tell them?

      If I like them then I might overlook a few things, but I'll always hold it against that person

  • Don't believe in karma (ppl get what they deserve). Bad things happen to everyone. The only thing that exists is action and consequence. If a person steals (action) it is a path of more probable negative consequence. But there could be a chance that person gets away with it (like most large corporations) and that person becomes richer and happier.

    I would speak to someone about a person depending on context. small things may be OK to let slide, but big things, like a major theft, domestic abuse etc, I would definitely start making calls to the cops.

  • Once a person steals one time from me, i lose faith in them I just would not bother with them and be sure to keep my distance from them but would remind them politely that karma will get them and trust me i never seen fail.

    I would not tattle on them but if they involve me, I will get law enforcement involved i have a low tolerance for people who cause trouble for me i like
    to remain the Peace Maker in any aspects I may come up against.

  • If I can't get back at them directly, I will tell on them and enjoy watching they get into trouble!

  • There's a saying. "If you give someone enough rope, they will hang themselves."
    It means that people that do bad things tend to keep doing them and eventually pay for their actions when they do get caught. By that time they have a long list of mistakes and really pay the price. It's funnier that way.

  • This depends on the situation. If there a thief heck yes report them. If someone is copying your school work oh well they'll learn one day.

      You are really young but I am going to say that you should try working out with your sister

    • 2mo

      She hates me. I swear I can walk past her and she punches me or slap my face for no reason.

    • 2mo

      Keep telling her that it hurts your feelings when she does that and if she doesn't stop than she can't play with your stuff

  • I normally give Karma a push in the right direction if I'm that annoyed I think about it.

    In your example I'd probably take something of there's and give it back a few weeks later with a "oops my bad". Shock of losing something without actually having to keep it.

  • If someone is going to get hurt as a result of their actions, or if someone else is going to be saddled wit the blame, I will say something to whomever has the power to stop them. But I won't say anything to the person directly, unless I think that maybe they didn't know any better.
