Quiz: Do You Read Other People’s Emails?

Lily couldn’t resist. Her boyfriend, Luke, (read about him and the case of the missing towels here) left his email account open and she knew she shouldn’t…but just this once…just one peek…he left the account open…

She found a letter Luke received from an ex-girlfriend…and another. Not real juicy stuff but in one, he suggested meeting one XGF (ex-girlfriend) after a business meeting. And that was a day that Lily thought all he was doing was attending a business meeting.

The question is, what does Lily do now? And what would you do? What do you do? Do you read your loved ones’ emails? Their journals left out by mistake? Is it better to know – or not to know? And once you do know, what do you do?

What do you think?
