My fiance and I ate at a restaraunt on Sunday, and I will admit, we each had two beers.
The bill came to $42.80, and I left the waitress (who was ok, but not great) an $8.00 tip.
When I added up the credit card slip, I mis-calculated and wrote down $52.80 as the total (yes, my own stupid mistake).
When I checked my bank statement today, I see two charges from the restaraunt. One for $42.80, another for $10. Apparently, the waitress took advantage of my addition error and boosted her tip by an extra $2.
I know $2 isn’t a big deal, but personally it chaps my butt that she did that when the tip amount clearly stated $8. To me, to take an extra $2 that clearly wasn’t intended is pretty much, well, theft.
What does The Dope think?
