I will grudgingly admit that I was duped. I had an acquaintance one time that was completely different than what I had first believed her to be. It was one of the few times that I wish I could have conducted pre-employment screening for someone in my personal life.
I had made a new friend who was introduced through mutual acquaintances. She had moved several times over the years that should have been my first clue to dig a little deeper. She bounced around from laborer job to laborer job.
This should have been a red flag because these are jobs that typically do not conduct employee background checks.
She was my friend so I didn’t question it much, and neither did anyone else.
What I did start to notice was that she started to drink more and more frequently. Over the next few months, she began drinking so much that she lost her job, her car, and most of her friends. As it turned out, she had always had a drinking problem. She also had several run-ins with the law which was a direct result of the drinking.
All of which she tried to hide by moving frequently and sticking to jobs that didn’t conduct employee background checks.
The last I saw her, she was moving again to a different state. I shudder to think of the mistake her next employer will make. If her closest friends didn’t know the truth, her boss surely won’t stand a chance.
