Ok, lets look at a situation; You are out in public, there, sitting on the ground, out in plain view, is a wallet, fat full of cash. It has cash dripping out of it.
You pick it up and open it and slip some money out of it. No problems right!
But there is an owners ID, right there! You can see that this fat wallet already has an owner.
An owned sub is like that wallet, his money belongs to someone else.
So, there I am, in the chat room. I've been chatting away to this slave for a long time and I know that he pays. BAM he admits to typing one handed. WANK TAX TIME!
He is charged, and he pays. Good sub. Right? WRONG!
I fucked up and didn't check his profile. He is owned! I have just become a poacher.
It isn't ok!
Think about your own subs. The time and work that you have put in to making them what YOU want them. Imagine that they are a sand castle that you have built up and shaped to suit your needs and desires.
Another Domme has put in the time and effort to open this losers wallet.
Then you come along and start digging out little bits of his wallet and take it for yourself. Eventually that sub doesn't have enough to give to the Domme that he has sworn fealty too. That isn't fair!
But he didn't tell me he was owned!!
If it is on his profile then you should have read it! Two way street baby!
He paid me! It my money now!
That's like saying it's ok to take the money out of the wallet that you found before returning it too it's rightful owner.
Would you prefer your lost wallet returned with all of the money in it? or some missing?
What do I do?
First things first. Admit that you were wrong and that a mistake was made. Own that mistake. Both you and the pig are at fault.
Find out who his owner is. Send her a message explaining what has happened. Most Dommes appreciate being told that their submissive is straying from them.
Arrange to either a) return the money too the submissive or b) pass the money onto the Domme. It is Her Money after all.
What if he offers to pay for my silence?
REPORT HIS ASS TO HIS DOMME!
I've done the right thing, and I feel like a fool, I've got no money and no subs...
Well this is a learning curve. Pigs don't think with their brains, they think with something that sits much closer too their wallets. Yes, you've fucked up but you can also learn from it. You don't grow if you don't learn. Move on!
There are plenty of unowned subs begging to throw their money at your sexy feet. Go find them. Leave other peoples property alone.
