On New Year’s Eve, I was at a bar & restaurant in Dickinson, North Dakota. I have known the bar & restaurant owner, the manager, the bartender, and the wait staff for two years. It was a busy night, all of the customers were pretty well behaved, there were very few problems, and almost everyone had a good time.
When it got to be close to 1:00 a.m., it became closing time, with last call for alcohol, and then shortly after that it became time for the customers to leave. I had agreed to stay to drive a wait staff person home when they got off work. The restaurant had cleared out completely, but here came this young lady that I knew, back to get her coat off the back of a chair.
This young lady that came back to the empty restaurant to get her coat off the back of a chair, had been one of my biggest inspirations in writing the blog post about six months ago titled, “Problem Women Moving To Dickinson, North Dakota”. I had had an incident with her about a year ago, where she had wanted and was attempting to remove bottles of alcohol from a bar, where she did not work, when the bar was left unattended.
I did not want to start anything with her this night, I believe that she is crazy, I did not want any confrontation, so I turned the other way to not even look at her. After about forty five seconds, she did not exit the restaurant, and I turned around, and she wasn’t there. I looked all around the room, and she wasn’t there. I knew that she didn’t leave the restaurant, was she hiding in the restaurant? I couldn’t believe it.
I started looking under tables, and when I looked up, I saw her very quickly leaving the restaurant through the exit, and the bar & restaurant owner coming out of the stock room behind the bar. I said to the bar & restaurant owner, “Did you find her in the stock room?” The owner said that yes, he did find her in the stock room.
At this time the manager came over. I explained to the bar & restaurant owner, and to the manager, that this is the second time that I have seen this young lady attempt to stay behind at a bar after closing, and remove alcohol when the bar was left unattended. I gave them her name. The manager asked the owner, “What did she say to you when you found her in the stock room behind the bar?” The owner replied, “She said that she wanted to buy some alcohol off-sale.” The owner said that he just told her to leave and go to a liquor store.
I had had a problem with this young lady the last time I was around her when a bar was left unattended, and I had not forgotten her. She was very rude and inconsiderate. She was from New York. I had found out some of the places that she had worked in Dickinson as a waitress. People told me that she was nutty, one person told me that she had caused a tremendous amount of problems, but no one told me that she had stolen alcohol. I can’t believe that she hasn’t tried to remove alcohol from bars elsewhere in Dickinson, but I can believe that she might not have been caught yet.
In my blog post titled “Problem Women Moving To Dickinson, North Dakota”, I explained that women can make more money in New York, Arizona, Florida, and Texas as a waitress, bartender, hotel clerk, bank teller, or administrative assistant, and live in less expensive housing, with a better social environment. Why would they want to move to Dickinson where it is so cold, and housing was so expensive? The answer was, there was such a shortage of workers in Dickinson, that employers did not ask a lot of questions, or do much of a background check. If employers would have talked to some of these women for even five minutes, they would have noticed that they were crazy. If employers would have contacted previous places where they worked, they probably would have been given some hints about the things these women had done in the past.
I am very,very angry about this, because not only is there nothing to do in Dickinson, and a shortage of women, the women that you do come in contact with in the bars, restaurants, stores, and banks, they are fucking crazy! So yes, I am trying to point out this crazy woman who moved here to Dickinson, because they found out what she was like where she came from, and now she is doing her same crazy shit here, and probably her co-workers have been blamed for, or are under suspicion for what she has done.
