My daughter is in 7th grade. Her birthday is coming up (she’ll be 13), and there’s a boy who has been vexed by her for quite a while now. Sydney said he’s a nice kid, doesn’t get in trouble, but she’s not interested in him. Yesterday he came to school with several birthday gifts for her. A leather bracelet, a stuffed animal, ribbons, stickers etc. But one gift has left me rather concerned…
A (possibly genuine) diamond ring. Husband and I have examined this under a microscope and we both think it may be a real diamond. If so, this ring is probably worth $1000.
There wasn’t even any hesitation on my part… we can’t keep this. If it’s real, it HAS to be stolen. And if it were mine, I’d want it back. We can’t keep it.
We don’t know this kid or his family. We made a best guess as to his phone number using the phone book and school zone area, but the number just rings and rings.
I don’t want to get him in trouble, but I’m thinking maybe we should report it to the police? What would you do?
