I guess everyone spent all their money shopping on Black Friday, and couldn't afford to eat the rest of the weekend. Ya, that's probably what happened.
My first table was a really nice party of 4. Since they were my only table, I had the chance to really spoil them. I put on the charm, mostly because I was bored out of my mind from spending the previous 90 minutes folding napkins.
As I brought their to-go packages over and showed them how I'd labeled and dated everything for them, one of the guests at the table exclaimed how wonderful my service was. Duh.
Her husband and their adult daughter sorted money and placed it into the check presenter. I asked if they needed change. Nope.
"Ok, well thank you so much for coming in to Bloggiano's! Have a happy holiday season!"
I went back and counted the cash. A $50 bill and two $5 bills. Their bill was $59.95. I bolted back to the table to check for cash left behind. Nothing.
Hmmm... I'm gonna go ahead and give them the benefit of the doubt and hope they accidentally forgot my tip. Ya, that's probably what happened.
Thank you Black Friday and Table 43
for being 'probably' responsible for the $30 I walked with on Saturday.
