Are we alone?

Okay... my family, myself, and my boyfriend are all wondering this... is this just our area and Ohio or other states are doing this too?

We will go out to eat and when bill time comes... you pay at the table, wait for change, and your change is wrong. Let's say you were suppose to get back 13.77 and you only got 13.00... you ask the waitress your 77 cents and she is surprised that you want it, but still gives it to you. You go to another place and they short you 80 cents again and your change ended in the 80 (I ended up taking it out of her tip). Places are rounding down the change to give you... Sometimes your receipt will even have the change amount on it...

Is anywhere else is this happening?

If not sure, count the change you get back. It may not seem like a lot at the time, but if you go out to eat a lot... it will be a lot at the end of the year.

I think next time one of the places do it to me again, I am getting a manager to tell them their people are stealing money from his customers. It's not right at all and it is stealing!


  1. Well I always tell them to keep the change as part of their tip because most people don't want change back. Maybe they are accustomed to people telling the waiter/waitress to keep the change so don't give it back. Its not a big deal to me *shrugs*

  2. I would never tell them to keep the change when I have 13.77 coming back to me. No way giving them that big of a tip.

  3. Huh, that's strange. I don't got out to eat a lot, and I'm never paying, so I don't really pay attention (LOL!) but if they keep doing it, yea tell them! Better yet, make a scene! That's what my mom would do.

  4. I don't pay, my bf pays for dinner, but we both make sure it is right. Even my parents are having problems at their usual place.

    Oh trust me I don't care if I make a scene... heck I will be asking for a manager.

  5. I've never had that problem. Its strange that it keeps happening to you. Maybe because times are hard now, they are trying to scape up every bit possible thinking that you wouldn't notice. Just keep them on their toes!!!!
