Apologies to my server....

March 12th, 2012 at 01:17 pm

So yesterday I went up to see the grandsons. It had been a while, what with my cold and all. I felt like going out to lunch and offered to treat, since my kids so often feed me at their home.

We went to Buffalo Wild Wings, and we all had a yummy lunch. I got the bill, charged it, and signed the receipt, putting a nice tip on it. This morning I pull out the receipt, and I have the signed copy -- I walked out with it!

I called the restaurant and explained what happened. They were still able to charge me, since I had left the other receipt, but of course the poor server got no tip at all. So I verbally authorized the tip to go on my card. Luckily I had the girl's name, so it will go to the right one.

I felt so bad! My son is a server and I know how important that tip is. But hopefully it is now all rectified.

After the restaurant, we went to GS1's hockey lesson. Then he and his mom went to a birthday party and GS2 went down for a nap, so my son and I played a couple of rounds of "Ticket to Ride." If you like board games, check this one out! It's lots of fun, has some strategy but is not too complicated.

I came home, did some laundry, made some French onion soup, changed all the clocks, and went to bed early, preparing to get up early! (I was still exhausted this a.m.)

Another book sold on half.com, so I'm off the post office after work. Then -- a date with a good library book and a glass of wine. The good life!

    That is so funny about Ticket to Ride. We played it yesterday, too! Me, for the first time. It was a little complicated at first, but once I got the hang of it it was easy.

    Sounds like a nice day.
