Is it okay to leave your purse unattended at your table?

“My husband and I were on vacation having breakfast at our hotel. I left my purse at the table and we each went to the bathroom. When I came back most of our cash was missing.
My husband is mad and thought I was irresponsible to leave it there. I figured with the employees there that nobody would touch it. The workers said they aren’t responsible if things are stolen.
Was I naive to think it was safe there?”
