He could call the police but since there's no sign of breaking and entering and nothing missing but his vodka, he wouldn't get much help there.
The partiers tried to leave the house clean, which is kind of funny. They remade the bed and put the party popper they popped, in the trash. They moved the furniture around (?) and left behind plastic cups, a used cosmetic wipe, a cell phone charger, chips crumbs, and an empty vodka bottle.
I asked DD today as a follow up test, "Where would you find alcohol in someone's house? " Answer: "I don't drink, so I wouldn't know." Me: "Where would you go if you did drink?" Her: "In the fridge, I guess. (where DH and I keep the beer/wine.) Me: "But what about vodka or tequila? Where would that be?" Her (pause..) "In the cabinet, I guess?
The fact that the vodka was missing from the freezer to me says that it's someone who knew to look there, but that's just a supposition.
Of course, one could say she was just acting, but I know her pretty well. She'll lie about cleaning her room completely or wearing her sister's jeans, but she's not good at it. And if I call her on it, she admits pretty quickly.
She said she'll think about going to work, but she hates her uncle now for thinking that of her when she has never acted that way before.
He hasn't come by to pick up the keys (I did make it clear that since he was planning on changing the locks, there was no need to pick them up.) and he hasn't said anything about paying younger DD for her work. We'd refuse the money, anyway, as a matter of principle, but if he doesn't at least offer, he's going to ruin the relationship with younger DD.
Older DD is more people-friendly and empathetic; Younger DD is much more objective and zero tolerance. She will shrug it off.
The ironic thing is, Brother is extremely protective of his oldest daughter, who just graduated college. Maybe in some weird way, he thinks we're just being the same way about DD.
All the same, he's going into the same category as Pinhead.
