That's pretty fucked up. Adam tries to do the nice thing and gets screwed.

Poor Adam. He is always so nice when I meet him. Shouldn't that woman be in jail for credit card fraud.

I'm pretty sure Adam leaves money like that stuck between the couch cushions. Probably not much of a loss.

That's awful! Poor Adam.

The money isn't so much the issue, although it is important. Adam trusted this person and she stole from him. That's the worst part of it.

I hope Bono is okay!

Seriously, that's terrible. I would have done away with her instead of keep her on employment. What a stupid thing to do.

Ouch, that's a nasty misuse of someone's trust there.

I wonder what would suck more?

Losing that much money, or your spouse cheating with ten different people. Just curious.

wow, how careless can people be??
I mean, if she had asked for some money maybe he would have lent her some; and if she had been honest from the beginning she would have kept her job...
besides, its ADAM CLAYTON!! you just can't steal from him!

Imagine being in a position to not notice?

It sucks to have your housekeeper steal from you, they do have free access to your home. I suppose Adam will be looking for another one soon?

Man, I hope Adam is alright too.

European maids are always in my close eye, beware of them.
