A North Carolina mother of three confronted a server at a local Steak ‘n Shake in Kannapolis over allegations that the server stole her bank card information and racked up $600 in charges.
The server was caught when Parks looked at her bank statement and saw that the server had paid her own electric bill. In addition to paying her electric bill, the server also reportedly spent money on clothing and an insurance payment.
Courtney Parks, 27, returned to the eatery the day after she saw the charges on her bank account, and confronted the store’s manager, who then brought out the Parks’ server from the previous night.
“That was my child’s day care money,” Parks told the Steak ‘n Shake employee. “That was my car payment. My kid’s day care check bounced because you stole all my bill money.”
“I was buying burgers for my family and you stole everything I had in my bank account,” she added.
The exchange was caught on a video that Parks’ friend shared on Facebook, which also seems to include a confession and an apology from the server.
“I’m so sorry about that,” the server told Parks. “I’m sorry about that. I’m willing to pay you all the money back.”
Despite the server’s apparent admittance, Parks became further enraged.
“Did you really think what you did was clever enough that you didn’t think that your name was going to get?” she asked.
“No, no ma’am,” the employee responded. “I knew this was going to happen. I’m sorry.”
The employee later added, “I don’t want to be in trouble.”
Parks claimed that she filed a police report and hopes for reimbursement.
