Part one: local “competition” employee (cocktail waitress slash hooker) racks up a 300 dollar tab and dips when the stolen credit card declines. Cut to me filling out a police report at 2am instead of, oh, my job.
Part two: turns out that she was on a weekend spending spree, stole the card and some other things from a friend, and had witnesses all over town vouch for her identity, her employment and her spree.
The officer stopped by tonight, explained the line-up photos he would show me and that I needed to offer my choice from the line-up and my certainty. 100 percent sure, I pointed out her photo: she looks almost like Gwyneth Paltrow. I remembered that face, for sure.
I will now be testifying against her in court.
She paid her tab but didn’t pay the 20 percent automatic gratuity on walkouts, so, that’s an extra 60 bucks coming back to me and Eiffel.
Yay. Court. How fun. Not.
In other news, I’m gearing up for ADSAP (my alcohol classes required of all DUI offenders) classes to start twice a week, ending the first week of June, and then the A.A. meetings I am going to return to now that school is almost out. Then, car purchasing time and re-licensure at the DMV…..Whoo hoo!
Note to others: don’t drink and drive. It’s seriously not even worth it….
Had a great evening at Awful Waffle tonight with Fridge, our barback, and Eiffel. Look forward to a good weekend and a final that’s not quite as scary as I assumed it might be….
