Restaurant Server Secrets
40 things your waiter really wants you to know! Read More »

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.

Dude Holds His Ex’s Facebook Page Hostage

Jessica Zamora-Anderson and Paul Franco of Queens, New York, hardly had the ideal relationship. They met on Facebook in 2008 and were reasonably happy, until a year later when a screaming match ended with Paul chucking a cell phone at his girlfriend’s head. Soon after, Paul let Jessica know that he’d taken video footage of them doing the deed and he wasn’t afraid to make it public—so when he demanded $185 to get his towed car released from an impound lot, she paid up. Fast forward to a few weeks ago, when Jessica tried to log into her Facebook page and her password was denied. She quickly realized that Paul had hijacked her account, changed her sexual preference to “gay,” and was writing her friends and family members and doing updates, posing as her. She contacted him, and he said he’d give her the account back—if she paid him $390. Which seems like a pretty arbitrary number? We’re pretty amused that instead of paying up, Jessica went to the police. Paul is now facing charges of coercion and harassment. Just another reminder to NEVER share your password with anyone. Oh, and to not date psycho douchebags. [NY Post] Keep reading »
