We (coworkers) went and ate at a restaurant for lunch today. A restaurant in which two of us paid cash. Needless to say we were both surprised when the waiter came back and had shorted us both $5. It was mentioned to him and he ran off to get our money and when he came back he said "I had left it on the counter." Really? The counter? In a restaurant? where anyone would have grabbed the money? I don't know if I buy it.

Then Ross made a comment jokingly like "Better luck next time, man." and the guy didn't even crack a smile. At all. Which makes me even more leery that he was actually hoping to short us money without us knowing because if it was an honest mistake wouldn't you at least be like "ha ha, yeah." or something? I know I would because I'd be so embarrassed that I'd shorted someone unintentionally.

To top it off, as we were leaving the restaurant, we passed said waiter and he didn't say anything to any of us. Usually when I leave a restaurant and I pass the waiter we had, said waiter will make some "come back soon," or "have a nice day" type comment. this guy said nothing. Not a peep. And actually seemed to be glaring as we left.

Sorry dude, better luck next time.

Oh, that would piss me off something fierce. How did he short EACH of you $5? Did he just leave two fivers on the counter? Weird.

Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid left a lot of money on the counter, too. But, they at least admitted to being thieves.

(Word verification is "money".. How did you do that?)
