    It’s perfectly fine for you to get involved.  But you should have done so in a more calm manner.  I don’t think your Fiance was embarassed because you emasculated him, he was probably just embarrased by you losing control in front of a crowd of people.  I would have been embarrassed as well.

    I wouldn’t go off like that on a stranger, for safety’s sake. Bark at the wrong person and you don’t know what they are capable of. You have to be smarter than that. My husband would probably be embarrassed if I started screaming at someone because that’s not how rational adults handle their problems. You don’t have to prove how hardcore you think you are, you can get the money back without a total freakout. Granted, yes that’s a dumb thing to waste money on so I’d be mad too, but at the same time hey, don’t give a stranger your money in the first place!

    I think you were justified.

    This is a really common scam, well – I’ve heard of it before.  I’m surprised the conman was trying to get quite so much.  If you could smell a rat I wonder why your Fiance couldn’t – men eh.  And its $100!!  Why why why? $1 sure, $10 maybe but $100 is loads.

    By The Way I hate liars too!

    this is hard. i would have dont the exact same thing as you. BUT my Darling Husband is the same way. he gets embarrassed when i do stuff like that. even flipping off other cars on the road. He feels like he should take care of it. Now he knows that i’m not going to lay down and take things but he said i need to start off calm and then go from there. i usually run in with guns blazing! so i always take a deep breath and go from there.

    So maybe just say you are sorry and the heat of the moment got the better of you. But let him know all the factors of why you got so mad. I bet he just felt embarrassed because he thought you didnt think he could handle it. and hopefully he learned his lesson about street gambling so this wont ever happen again
