Dinner was free at this restaurant today with friends.
Some friends invited us to dinner. They called it a belated Valentines Day dinner. Asked us to meet at 2pm. 2 minutes after 2pm. We are seated. We're looking at the menu. It was taking a while for the server to get to us. Finally some guy comes asks if we want cocktails We order. We're waiting quite a while for those drinks. Finally he comes back to ask for our food order. Everyone is ordering. We pick our entrees. He was going to walk away. I said excuse me. For appetizer I want. Then tell him. Finally half hour after we're seated. Our cocktails come. It was at least a hour before any food came. All through the dinner. My friends dh Jimmie is complaining how terrible the service is. He was kind of loud about it. The waiter was terrible. Totally ignored us. We're about done eating. Jimmie asks for the bill. Figuring it might take a while. Like everything else did. We get the bill and are ready to leave. Jimmie insited on paying. Even after I offered to pay half the bill. He calls the manager over. Tells them how terrible the service was and all that. The manager inisted on us getting the whole bill free. It was 150$ give or take a few dollars including tip. That was for 5 of us. As we took friends mother also who is recently widowed. Jimmie said. He'd pay the bill He just wanted to make management aware of the service. But that manager inisted on canceling out the transaction. On his debit card they just took for the bill. I and my friend didn't expect the whole bill taken off. We figured maybe just the cocktails or just part of the bill.
