My younger DD has been housesitting my brother (Uncle's) house. I drive her over and help her. Last night, we noticed that the door we had closed from kitchen to mudroom was open; the mail on the table was moved, all the lights were off.
I texted my brother immediately and said, "either your house is haunted or someone has a key to your house."
He texted back no one has a key but his teen that was with him, and his daughter in another state.
Tonight when he came home, he called to say that someone had a party in his house. The vodka from his freezer was gone, there were plastic cups in the bedroom, the bed was remade, etc.
Anyhoo, my brother is saying that it had to be oldest DD. We not only confronted DD about it (she's not a partier, but still) and she denied it.
We then made a timeline of her week and confirmed with the parent where she spent the night that she was there all night. (DD was grounded from her car, and the other girl doesn't drive, as well.)
We are really angry and upset because it's obvious that my brother doesn't believe us; he thinks we're just in denial.
As a side note, it's not uncommon in this neighborhood for, when the kids of a house are out of town, their friends come and party in the house. It happened to one of younger DD's friends. So it's also possible that my nephew's friends were the ones who were there; and his crowd is much more of partiers.
(DD can't sneak out because we have an alarm system.)
Now, DD wants to quit her job (Uncle is the general manager where she works) because she's so upset. I don't want to accept any money Brother may offer younger DD for house sitting; if he does.
Again, it's not that I believe my child no matter what else. It's that we've completely accounted for her where abouts, who had the key, and verified her location when she was away from us.
