Dear Fonseca:

My co-workers and I played cards at our boss’s house on Saturday night. I won $470 while another co-worker won $285. When we got to work yesterday our boss asked us to return his money. I spent my winnings on Sunday on holiday gifts. My co-worker gave his money to his wife. After we told him we spent his money he told us that we have until the end of the week to pay him back. I have no plans to do so and think it’s wrong he is asking for our winnings. If you were me would you return his losses? Why or why not?
