So, the restaurant we go to all the time has a points thing.
One waiter always tells you when you are getting close to a free meal.
We were a little past a free meal, so last week we went and tried to cash it in.
The waiter (not the one who makes sure you know how many points you have) said, we couldn't use the points, because there was no manager there that night.
So, we paid. What you get is $60, so we ordered more than normal to get to $60. We were at $58 and change.
Tonight we went again. Same waiter.
Again we ordered more than normal, since we needed $60.
He came back and said there were no points on our card.
So, we are thinking, this waiter stole our $60 the time he told us it couldn't be used.
Now, this would make little sense, since we are regulars. We tip him well. HE was the guy who might have stolen the points.
If I was him, I would have paid out of my pocket, because he was the last one to have the card both times.
If he paid today, we would have never known.
We aren't sure what to do.
He has little kids, including a new baby.
Then again, the odds are really good he stole the money.
Not 100%, but more than 50%.
I guess next time we see the owners son, we will ask a few questions, without naming any names.
The waiter is abrupt. Maybe he should pretend to be nicer and he would get more tips.
Oh, if he did rob the points, there were 15 bucks worth of points left on the card, plus the tip we gave him. It would have been less than 40 bucks out of his pocket for us not to know.
Hubby said, he has seen stupider things tried at the bank.
Odds are he needs more money than he is making, but stealing from regulars is just not bright.
If he did it.
Like I said, it looks more likely than not. We would win in small claims court, not real court.
