If I caught somebody stealing my phone, I’d definitely kick off. Not sure I would do as good a job as this girl, though!
Apparently, he stole her phone, she found out, and went to get it back. He claimed to not have it and she went nuts at him, sort of understandably.
The lad couldn’t really win. If he hit the girl back he’s tarred with the ‘woman beater’ label, and because he didn’t, he’s the guy that got his ass kicked by a girl.
The best way to deal with a situation like this is to not get into it in the first place by nicking a phone.
