Reddit has a got a great story about a young man and his thieving girlfriend. This guy is a college freshman, excited to start his new life on campus. He makes the classic freshman mistake of rushing into a relationship with a girl named Melissa who lives in the dorm above him.
She’s Unliked by Everyone
Everyone in the building hates her. But he’s blinded by love – or maybe just hormones! – and ignores the red flags.
Suspicious Activity on His Bank Account
One day, he got a call from his mom saying there’s some suspicious activity on his bank account.
Someone Had Been Buying Food With His Card
He realized that someone had been using his debit card to order food from Grubhub, and the receipts were in Melissa’s name.
He Confronted Her
When he confronted her, she denied everything and started cussing him out.
She Wanted Her Things Back
But that’s not the end of the story. Melissa turned up at his dorm room demanding her stuff back.
She started banging on the door, shouting that she knew “you’re in there.”
Banging on the Door
The door started to crack as she slammed against it repeatedly. He couldn’t believe what he was seeing!
Eventually, Melissa calmed down. OP thought he could put the whole thing behind him, but boy, was he wrong!
Charges Against Her
The Title IX office got involved and brought three charges of misconduct against Melissa: theft, threatening/violent behavior, and inciting an intervention by university staff.
Perfect Date for Hearing
They even schedule the hearing for Valentine’s Day to make it extra memorable.
The student discovered she had found a new boyfriend, so he couldn’t help but smile, knowing that the Valentine’s Day disciplinary hearing had ruined her plans for a romantic evening.
He Came Alone
He came to the hearing alone, trying to figure out what to expect.
She Had a Lawyer
Meanwhile, Melissa arrived with her parents, who acted as her “character witnesses,” even though this wasn’t an actual courtroom.
Her folks also paid a lawyer to defend her, which was unnecessary, since the board consisted of grad students.
He Was Given Free Representation
The board offered him pro-bono legal representation from a junior economics major named Jeffrey to level the playing field.
Jeffrey had already read his account of the events, and after seeing screenshots of Grubhub receipts, he believed there was a decent chance the charges would stick.
He Had Filmed Everything
But then the student revealed a secret: when Melissa tried to break down his door, he filmed the whole thing!
Watching the video was like watching a movie where the villain gets their comeuppance.
The Courtroom Went Wild
The courtroom erupted! Everyone was yelling, and Melissa’s parents couldn’t believe what they saw.
She Had Fooled Everyone
Melissa had convinced everyone that her ex-boyfriend was a liar, claiming he gave her permission to use his account to buy food and that he had hidden her stuff in his dorm room.
You Can’t Hide the Truth
In her version of events, he was a sociopath hell-bent on destroying her reputation. But after seeing the video, the board members were floored.
The verdict was in, and Melissa was found responsible for all three charges.
Her Reputation Was in the Gutter
She moved to a different dorm building. It was probably for the best, given that her reputation was in tatters.
She had already failed all her classes and dropped out of school when her parents finally pulled the plug on her education.
