I had lunch with friends of mine at Atlanta Bread the other day. I ordered half a chicken salad sandwich. The employee who took my order asked if I'd like pasta salad or potato salad with my sandwich. I asked her if it came with the sandwich and she said it did. I requested a pasta salad.
If the salad came with the sandwich, why was I charged an extra 69 cents for it? I wasn't in the mood to question my bill at the time, but the principle of the thing bothered me.
In the last couple of years, my husband and I frequently find errors on our bills at restaurants. We never leave our table anymore without going over the charges and if we find a discrepancy we don't pay for anything until we've straightened things out with an employee.
I can't help but wonder if the errors are accidental or if these establishments are attempting to rip us off intentionally.
Whatever the case, they better think twice before they mess with Lon and I again. We certainly weren't born yesterday!!!!
