So I posted earlier in a post about life and stuff that my mom’s going to a work meeting. Well, I just got off the phone with her. Right now, she’s still got her job. So yay on that! Now suspicion for the stolen heater has expanded to include my mother’s boss as well as this other girl from first shift (I think it was first shift) who has been vocal at the job about having heating issues at her house. She has since stopped complaining, the time frame she stopped fitting in around the time the heater was stolen. They can’t prove it right now, of course, but they are having the maintenance man (who is an ex-cop) do some scare tactics.
Mom basically was like “I don’t know anything about this damn mess. I was off for 4 days and didn’t know it was missing until last night when I got the note to come to this damn meeting.” When the guy pressured her about the 5 days she worked preceding her time off, she told him up front that she doesn’t even know which key goes to the shed, let alone what locks it goes in, and how the hell would she have got it off the property when she can hardly breathe after lifting one of the residents (asthma). Quite frankly, she told him that 3 of the 5 days she worked, she just wanted to work and get out of there because it was the 2 year anniversary of her son’s sudden and violent death in a hit and run, and she didn’t know how she was going to be spending that day and night of the anniversary. The missing heater wasn’t even in her mind at the time. Guy was like “That’s your story? You’re sticking to it?” and she was like “Yes. I don’t know a damn thing about the heater. And if you show up at my house, you’d best have a warrant. I know my rights, sonny boy.” (He had threatened everyone with the “I know who did it, and I’ll come to your house and get it” bullshit, even though they all knew that he didn’t have a clue who did it.)
