I'm betting she only uses 15% of her brain power.

I would like to know how much extra money she raked in by doing this.

This would seem to disprove the adage

that :there is no Proffitt in crime".

There clearly is, and she will go to jail.

No 503c here.

were they CGI'd?

OOOOHH, changing tips...

- nevermind

Seriously, I've found this 3 times over the years on my credit card. (I'm pretty obsessive in Quicken with entering all my charges manually, hanging onto my receipts until I get my online statement, then reconciling.)

I called the first restaurant to complain (they gave me a song and dance about a "clerical error"), then I called the credit card company (they removed the over charge.)

The next two were at the same restaurant in La Quinta, CA. We were traveling and I didn't have their number, so I called the credit card company and they removed the ENTIRE charge, to my complete surprise. I was kinda impressed.

This has happened to me twice at a local restaurant, but - oddly - it was only changed by one dollar each time.

It's a place we like so now I just pay cash if we eat there.

At least it was a waitress and not a mohel.

I misread that last post, leading to this idea for a reality TV show...

America's Next Top Mohel.

I respect waiters for being underpaid and overworked. They do a job I would not enjoy, so I tip well, generally 20-25%. Up to 50% for small meals with good service. And I never abuse a waiter.
But I do not pay a restaurant bill with a card because I am uneasy handing the key to my bank to someone who is underpaid.
My daughter, who pays for a pack of gum with a card, just lost $190 at a restaurant before she found the problem. She got it back, but the aggravation hurt.
