Post of The Month (September)

Maisy is our Post of The Month winner voted by the community for the following post:

"Hey Shaunie,

​I care. I really relate to what you have been experiencing with the house falling apart, and things not getting fixed due to general shame of the state of the house and not knowing where to begin fixing things or who to contact (you don't want to come across rogue tradesmen). Not even having adequate heating and hot water. And clutter. Everywhere. It's horrible to live in such circumstances, I know. It's hard as well when you see everyone else living a 'normal' life and yet being unable to talk about your situation."

  • Dealing with false accusations

    Someone at work wrongly thought that there was some cash missing from the till. Within a few minutes, he and several other people accused me, and only me, of stealing it. I told them the truth, that I hadn't stolen it. Minutes later, he again added up how much money was taken during that day and realised that there was no money missing - he'd added it up wrongly the first time. No-one apologised to me.

    In a few ways, I can't understand this:

    a) Why didn't he add it up a second time straight after it didn't tally, rather that immediately accusing me?

    b) Why did he, and several others, accuse only me? I'd never stolen anything, so why did they suspect / scapegoat me only?

    c) Why, after they realised for 100% certain that I hadn't stolen any of the money (because no money was actually missing) didn't any of my accusers apologise to me?

    Is there a good way to deal with this type of situation, should it arise again? How can I reduce the risk of being falsely accused again?
