@MsYankee:  This happened to my husband but in a much larger scale. He had taken some clients out to dinner and wrote in a 30.00 tip and the waitress changed it to a 300.00 tip…….craziness!!! He went back to the place to talk to the manger and the waitress had admitted to doing it b/c she was struggling to pay her rent…..not sure how it ever went thru at the end of the night….one would think the manager would have caught it but he didn’t find out til a few days later when he checked his statement. The restaurant gave him the money back and the waitress got fired.

Sorry this happened to you….not sure if the waiter meant to do it or not but either way if he didn’t he still should have been more careful!

@mrsSonthebeach:  Oh absolutely!  No argument there.  I was just pointing out that if he had misread the tip and didn’t bother to double check it against the total (which is stupid and lazy) if the system has the server enter their tip and not the total it could have been a mistake.
