“Dear PoP,

I just have a question, (hypothetically of course) if a person gets a little too intoxicated and steals something from a bar and wants to give it back, will the bar be upset if the person returns it? Should the person anonymously return it or go in and own up to it and apologize? Will the bar press charges?”

I’m guessing that if the patron returned the item and apologized the bar would not press charges. What do you guys think?

Ed. Note: I offered to return the item for this person. Hell, if someone else has stolen something from a bar and feels awkward about giving it back – I’ll give it back for you and promise to keep you anonymous.
