Imagine this: your wallet gets stolen one night while you’re out with friends, and the thief uses your identity to write hundreds of dollars worth of bad checks. You report the crime to the police but they can’t track down a suspect. A couple weeks later, you’re waiting tables at your restaurant job when a girl comes in and orders a margarita. You ask for her ID, and… she hands you your stolen driver’s license. This is exactly what happened to Brianna Priddy, a waitress at an Applebee’s in Colorado, and she handled the situation way better than most of us would have: “I didn’t say anything,” Priddy told a local news station. “I handed [the ID] back to her and said, ‘Sure I’ll be right back with your margarita,’ went straight to the phone, called the cops.” Police arrived in minutes and arrested the woman for theft, identity theft, criminal impersonation, and possession of narcotics.
Faced with a similar situation, I can only imagine how difficult it would be to resist bashing your own identity thief in the head with a pepper grinder, but Priddy handled it like an old pro. “I put on my server smile and tried to take care of them,” she says, “but I was shaking like crazy.” I hope she gets recruited by the CIA after this.
