@waltz: it's great that you have such an honest, open, and above-all trusting relationship with your girlfriend, but sadly, not everyone is so lucky. all he has to do is be more careful now that he knows she's stolen from him and lied about it -- who knows, he's probably got his reasons for sticking with her and giving her another chance. maybe she's smokin' hot?

Then he shouldn't have asked for an "honest answer" if he wasn't prepared to accept what she said.

Beyond that, if he didn't want her to have access to his money, he probably shouldn't leave it lying around for her to take.

face it, asking for a 'honest answer' is pretty much relationship code for 'i know what you did, just tell me what i already know and we can work things out'. she failed the test. anyway, he thought he could trust her, and he got burned. he'll know better next time.

@lz: when you have to sit down and focus on a game for hours so that you can review it fairly, it doesn't matter whether you got it for free or not, man. it's no longer just having fun playing a game, it's work. :3

i'd confront her on it. twenty bucks is a small price to pay to find out your girlfriend is a thief, man; you'll be lucky if that's all she's stolen.

@Panda: alcohol usually works well for sticky things, though you'll need to be good with a q-tip to get it all off the surface instead of just moving it around. if the stickiness is on the outside or on the sides of the buttons, it should work, but if there's sticky cider down inside the controller, you're probably screwed unless you open it up and clean the buttons really well down beneath the outer shell.

edit: hahaha, or you could totally wait half a year like bboy suggested; by then the cider would probably have dried up completely and flaked away from the inside of your controller :3

have you tried using alcohol? that's what i usually use when something gets dirty or sticky. if the cider is down inside the controller, though, opening it up is probably going to be your only option.

@Trin: Males? Logical? Please, all anyone needs to do to disprove that assumption is check out any set of gaming forums, even this one. Male and female alike, we are all capable of using both logical and illogical reasoning in an attempt to win an argument. :3

We turn that turn-around right back around at women everyday. And it's even more funny.

and when we turn that back around on men, it becomes a never-ending cycle of all of us laughing up our sleeves at one another. ain't life grand? :3

This is true, but I think, in general, women have more of a need to think they are right. And they certainly have less of a need to make sense while trying to show they are right. :D

it's not that we don't make sense, it's that you aren't listening and you only get half of what we're trying to say. it's not our fault your brains are turned off. also, if you don't think dudes have more of a need to be right about things, try being a woman talking to a man about building things, barbecuing, or playing video games. it's funny to set them off and watch 'em talk themselves blue in the face trying to persuade you of something you already knew and/or didn't give a rat's behind about anyway, but apparently it's deadly important (but not really, lol). :3

Oh gramps, if you only knew how much trouble those two little words have kept me out of. Women don't always have to be right, but it works best if they always think they are.

What's funny is that we turn that right back around at men every day. With both genders playing the same overall game, who's to say who's actually right in the end, and/or who really believes it? :3
