Speak Up!

By Blairbarnes

This is a quick one!

Four guys walk into the bar, order a bunch of wings and 2 pitchers of
premium beer. They eat and drink everything. When the bill comes they
say “Wow, why is it so much?” Just on a side note here: their bill was
$65 this included, once again, 2 pitchers of beer which accounted for
at least $35 of that and 4 and a 1/5 pounds of wings with fries.
Personally, I think that’s a good deal for four guys to go out and eat
and drink. Their server just didn’t understand the discrepancy and
neither did I. I took it upon myself to actually find out what the
issue was before discounting their bill. The conversation went
something like this:

Me: Could you please tell me exactly what is wrong with your bill
because we’re having a hard time understanding what the discrepancy

Cheapo: Yeah, it’s too expensive. We actually wanted the smaller
pitcher for our second round.

Me: But you drank the large one, yes?

Cheapo: Yes.

Me: So, why didn’t you tell your waitress that it was not what you
wanted when she brought it over?

Cheapo: Well… umm.. studder studder… I don’t know the difference
in size between the big one and the small one.

Me: sigh. You got the large pitcher first so you knew when you saw the
second one that it was clearly not the small one but you drank it
anyway. Pause. Thanks just wanted to clarify that.

Their bill was discounted and they actually tipped her very well. I
guess it was just to prove that they are not in fact the cheapos they
painted themselves out to be.
