$50 Pancakes

Post by Furball » Wed Feb 07, 2018 12:33 pm

Last Sunday we went for breakfast before church. The place we went has enormous servings, so we split the plate with pancakes, bacon, and eggs. Throw in coffee and oj and it's $17.00, tip makes it an even 20. So Mrs Furball checks our bank this morning and it got ran for $49.75. I checked the receipt and it was our card number, so how the heck does this happen? She called down there and got it fixed, but how many people just pay and assume its all good? Also, why does this never happen in reverse, where i eat $50 worth of food and only get charged $20? Ya, I'm so sure it was just an honest mistake...

Wife got cash difference back, an apology, and a $20 gift certificate from the manager... so never mind, I'm good.

Zombie thread confirmed.
Yeah, that would have been a hell of a tip.
I'm not carrying cash around. I can operate a credit card responsibly, and we match receipts with statements.
