Dumb thief.
My daughter operates a beauty salon and after servicing a couple of clients yesterday morning she noticed her phone was missing. She immediately called her husband to track the location of her phone using his phone. They tracked the phone to a small apartment building a few miles away from her salon. When they got to the doorstep they remotely triggered the alarm on the missing phone and clearly heard the alarm coming from that apartment unit. Then all of a sudden a woman in her 50's steps out of that apartment with a blaring phone in her purse. The woman, startled to see my daughter there immediately hands her phone back to her telling her that she found it.
That woman was my daughter's long time, regular client from that morning.

Wow. Glad it worked out, Roadfix! Dumb thief indeed! That's a real breach of trust.

Glad your daughter got her phone back. I wonder if the dumb thief will be back as a client.

Wow, roadfix....that does take a lot of nerve. Dumb nerve, but nerve. Would have like to see the thief's expression when your daughter caught her red handed.

The thief stated she "found" the phone. LOL....
She can clearly see that it was my daughter's phone. The wallpaper showed a pic of her and her kids on the screen.
They're reviewing the salon's security camera records from yesterday to see exactly when and how it happened.
My daughter pretty much doubts she'll ever be back again. Returning for service will be just too awkward.

This was my daughter's 2nd time tracking down her phone. About 6 months ago she left her phone in a public restroom and later realized what she had done. The phone was later tracked to a business location about 10 miles away but unfortunately in that incident she was not able to recover the phone.

Geez, roadfix, what a pain. Glad your daughter was able to get her phone back. I would have gone all postal on that client.

If she's smart, she won't be back. I guess I'm expecting a lot, huh?

IF she does return, I hope your daughter gives her a "very special" haircut, roadfix! Hee Hee!

So, I never stole a phone, so why did I get the special haircut? A 1 inch layered look all over. What did I do to deserve this?

You probably mentioned that you were moving and they figured you would not be a repeat customer!

I bet she didn't expect to give a free haircut that day...the hair will grow out, she still won't be paid...
