I was expecting you to say he came on to you zach... Now that would've been something to post about.

Get over yourself. He didn't mean any harm by it. He wasn't accusing you of taking his money, he was more than likely trying to figure out if he did something dumbassed (losing his money) your room or somewhere else along the way.

Think you're overreacting. He was just covering all the bases.

Belated Happy Birthday, btw!

GT feels like he has been accused of an integrity violation.

I don't see it the same way you do, GT. I wouldn't have taken exception with the question.

As an aside, some people I used to travel with were the polar opposite of tidy, and wouldn't have noticed if I left a cheap hooker in their bed.

consider it alls well. At least now he knows, he was wrong, and he wouldn't doubt you again.

He probably meant nothing.

+1 on everybody's sentiments. The fact he said it right off the bat the next day says to me he honestly thought he had just left it at your place.

gt i think youre blowing everything way out of proportion here. like everyone else is saying. how many times have people asked you something like that? what if this guy was your boss, would you be mad at him? it seems like you may be feeling this way because you also feel he is "inferior" to you. consciously or subconsciously.

I concur with the prevailing sentiment. If you can't account for something that's important to you the last thing on your mind would be decorum. I think he deserves a pass.

It depends on tone of his voice and how he responded to you when he found out what really happened. If he was being blunt then you can dismiss him. Otherwise, I'll let it go.

I second most of the advice. I doubt he was calling you a thief even by inference.

yeah, I guess it was his tone that pissed me off. anyway, I have gotten over it, and pretty much told my guys to treat him nicely.

It sounds like this is already over but...I suspect this was just a matter of the guy speaking in a way that didn't accurately express his intention. If he had said " I can't find my wad of cash. Do you mind to look around your room and see if I dropped it somewhere?" it probably wouldn't have rankled you like that.

+1. You are definitely taking on a bit of a "superior" patrician role here.
