    Re: Family Disputes Gay Server's Story

    I had thought this story was made-up from the beginning.

    As for NExtEra, next he'll have to explain away the credit card being charged the amount of the bill plust the tip listed on the reciept.

    To prove their point they also produced a Visa bill, which indicated their card was charged for the $93.55 meal plus the tip, for a total of $111.55.
    Seems to me, what happened is Dana probably printed a duplicate reciept, wrote the comments and sent it out to the blog. The writing is not the same on the two reciepts, most noticeable in the "5's"

    Normally on all the receipts I have gotten from a restraunt, the customer and merchant copies were the EXACT same with the only change being the name "Merchant" and "Customer". The customer copy the couple provided does not have a signature spot on it like the merchant copy does.

    I'm only pointing out differences I see and asking if anyone else has had the same experience where the customer copy and merchant copy were different.

    Slow down there son. I never said the couple was lying, I am only poitning out differences for discussions. Shame on me for not automatically being on the "bash the gay" wagon.

    Yes, the reciepts will have differences like that often. Additionally, if that were really a concern, the owners of the restaraunt, when interviewed, would have pointed that out if that was an issue. Instead they came up with some goofy claim that the credit card bill was fake, even though we can all see it and the reporter saw the orginal.

    It's possible the owners did it to gain some attention for the restaraunt, but the waitress had the most to gain and would have had an idea of the donations she might get, following similar cases in the not too distant past.

    Again, I have yet to see a receipt where the customer copy doesn't have the signed line on it while the merchant copy has it on there. That's the difference I see that makes me suspicious. Again, I could be wrong but just pointing that out.

    As for the visa bill, if the food were specials, it would be possible to have that same total on multiple bills. I don't know who is lying for sure right now, but if all the facts the couple have are correct, the waitress and/or the restraunt is in trouble.

    Just so you know, it really is not that uncommon. Normally at nicer restaraunts.

    BTW, off-topic a bit, I realize... But this one was apparently fake too:

    Maybe the owner was in knowledge since it did say "A manager and the restaurant owner insisted they had the original ticket for the $93.55 charge, but would not produce the receipt for NBC 4 New York and could not explain why the family's credit card was charged for more." These conflict a great deal . Something is not right .

    I even stated that IF the proof is true, the waitress was in trouble. Maybe it's because I like to see the evidence before I personally make judgement.
    Nobody really has since "A manager and the restaurant owner insisted they had the original ticket for the $93.55 charge, but would not produce the receipt for NBC 4 New York and could not explain why the family's credit card was charged for more."

    They also provided a document they said was a Visa bill, which appears to indicate their card was charged for the meal plus the tip, for a total of $111.55.

    The couple told NBC 4 New York that they believed their receipt was used for a hoax. The wife says she is left-handed and could not have made the slash in the tip line, which she said looks to be drawn from the right."

    That story smelled way too fishy to me from the beginning -- way too stereotypical, way too in vogue -- but of course you can't actually SAY that without getting pummeled by 2x4s of righteous rage.

    I had a credit card machine at my old job that printed two separate receipts one for customer and one for the store. Boss got mad at employee for giving customer wrong one because they were different. And the store must keep the one with the signature.

    Am I wrong?
    So...what are your views on the Holocaust then?
