Applebee’s waitress asks patron for ID, gets own stolen driver’s license in return
Imagine you're a waitress, out with friends on a night off, when you lose your wallet. Cash, credit cards, driver's license—all gone. Your bank later informs you that checks are being issued in your name.
It's a pain, but you carry on. Two weeks later, you're at work when four people walk in and sit in your section. They start ordering drinks. You ask to see their IDs. A woman in the group hands a driver's license to you. You look down, and it's yours.The story doesn't state whether they suspect that the woman in question actually stole the waitress's purse or happened upon her ID. The charges she is facing could stem from her presenting the waitress's driver's license, or she could have been the person who found the purse and was issuing checks. In any case, she loses big points for not noticing that the person whose ID she was using was standing right in front of her.
And here's the best part - she's 26. She had no reason to use the waitress's ID just for a drink. So think about how stupid this bint is. At the very least she is using a license she found - while in possession of narcotics. She's committing a crime - and believe me, every 19 year old kid with a fake ID knows for damn sure they're committing a crime - with using an ID that doesn't belong to her WHILE she is committing another crime. DUH!
Then again, as we've said before, if they weren't so stupid, they might not be criminals.
That is all.
