A. Bob gave Mike his $5 lunch money.
In this version Bob willing gave Mike his $ and is responsible for such decision.
B. Mike took Bob’s lunch money.
In this version $ moves the same direction but it sounds like Mike is a bully of sorts.
It is possible that version A happened but Bob decided to tell his parents version B so that he didn’t get in trouble, thereby painting Mike as a bad kid.
Half truths are still lies.
