Padding the bill

2011-10-04 22.29.10The photograph on the left is one of a bill incurred last night at the Frankie and Benny's restaurant in Birmingham. We had gone there to celebrate a friend's birthday. When the bill was presented, we could clearly see that there was a Budweiser added for the cost of £3.75.

I found it a very sly way of padding the bill. I cannot believe that the waitress, who wrote down our order at the table, could so brazenly add a beer! If she wrote down the order at the table, and did not have a beer listed, where did it come from?

I don’t know about the food the others had but the burger I had was overdone and hard. Not to mention covered in unrequested mayo and piri piri sauce. That is the last time I will be going there.
