Today I had lovely lunch at my favorite Mexican establishment with a friend I hadn't seen in a while. In the midst of catching up we couldn't help but notice that our waiter looked seriously stoned.
He delivered our drinks properly, although they did taste funny. He took our order, never to return again. We just assumed he needed a smoke break (you know, the stoned look)... and we're fairly certain it wasn't Marlboro's he was smoking.
Thankfully someone else brought our food. The leaves in my friends salad were questionable, but there were no side effects by the end of the meal, so I think we're good.
Our top notch waiter finally returned when it was time to pay the bill. Here's when it gets good.
My bill was $7.50. I gave him a $10 bill. Now stay with me. I know this is difficult, but together we can work through it.
How much change should he have brought me? Grant it, he was a bit stoned, but still.
How much change DID he bring me? $2. Really? $2??
Please tell me why I was robbed right before my very eyes in the middle of a crowded restaurant on the North side of San Antonio? How can this happen? Did he think I wouldn't notice? Did he think I would somehow be grateful to him for lightening the load in my purse by reducing the amount of change I have to carry?
Maybe I looked like I'm not a good tipper and he thought he should just go ahead and take what he could get. Hope that worked out buddy...
