Dear Mike and Nicole,

Someone stole a valuable piece of equipment from my work. We are a pretty small department of just eight people. Our bosses have given us till noon on Wednesday to confess who did it. I'm torn over what to do. I know who stole the equipment, but don't want to tell and be labeled a snitch. I'm also worried about this person coming after me if they lose their job. I'm loyal to my co-workers and friends, but I'm also supporting my girlfriend and her three kids and need this job and the money that comes with it. If no one comes forward by noon, we've been told that everyone in the shop will be fired. Should I snitch or not?
