Audi Customer Offered Free Lunch After Car Gets Damaged, She Racks Up Epic $1100 Food Bill

audifeat

An Audi dealership in the U.K. offered a 27-year-old woman a free meal to make up for her new car being damaged in the showroom, but when she presented them with her bill, they were completely floored by how much she spent.

Siobhan Yap had recently purchased a new Audi A3 convertible from Audi Watford outside of London for about 20,000 pounds, or just over $30,000. Before she picked up her new car however, a delivery truck accident left the brand new car damaged.

To apologize for the “inconvenience caused,” the dealership offered to pay for a  free meal for two. What they didn’t know was that Yap would go HAM with her free meal.

Yap took her mother out to the Michelin-starred L’Atelier de Joel Robuchon restaurant in Covent Garden in the heart of London.

For their epic meal, they enjoyed four glasses of rosé champagne, two $106 bottles of wine, a $54 black truffle tasting dish, scallops, risotto and $132 in cocktails, among many other dishes for a total of 21 different items.

reciept Audi was expecting a modest bill of about 100 pounds, which works out to just over $150. Instead, Yap slammed them with a bill for 714.61 pounds, which works out to $1103.93, including a 13% tip.

A Watford Audi spokesman explained that the bill was an ”excessive expenditure for two diners” but they were “keen to make amends” by agreeing to cover half the bill. The spokesman continued:

“We believe this is a fair and reasonable amount given the circumstances, and we stand by the decision taken.”

However, Yap apparently doesn’t think she went overboard and Audi actually skimped on their promise to pay for half the bill which would be about 357 pounds. She  explained:

“I asked for a courtesy car in the first instance which they said they did not have. They only gave me one because I kicked up a fuss with the MD.

I received a sum of £250 but I have had no further contact with them. The statement that they offered me half is incorrect.”

If a car dealership damaged your new car, would you think a $1000 meal is a fair price?

Man Stiffs Waitress Over Sour Cream, Cousin Finds Out And Publicly Shames Him

Sour-Cream-Shame

Sure, when a restaurant runs out of an item you look forward to it can ruin the dining experience. The only thing you can do is make the most of it and move on. However, if you’re a recent customer at Joe’s Crab Shack, you can take it to a petty place.

Take this one guy for example.

When he discovered that the restaurant had run out of sour cream, he stiffed the waitress on a $71 check. To add insult to injury, he wrote “Find Sour Cream” on the line for tip.

Dustin Clark, cousin to the sour cream-shaming customer, saw the photo of the receipt posted online. Clark then drove to the Oklahoma Crab Shack and gave the waitress $20 and apologized for his cousin.

He then posted the experience on Facebook as well:

Clearly, Clark didn’t think something so trivial as missing sour cream was warrant enough to stiff a waitress as well leave a rude comment.

Faith in Humanity Restored: Man Warms Our Hearts with Amazing Note

heartwarmingcheck

Our hearts were touched when a waiter in the Boston area  posted a picture of a note he was given alongside the bill of one of his customers. The waiter informed Huffpo that two people who seemed to be a mother and a daughter, began crying after receiving a phone call giving them bad news.

“Do me a favor and bring me their checks too. Someone just got diagnosed,” read the note.

“While waiting tables tonight, a mother and daughter started crying mid-meal. I had no idea what happened until a single guy at the table next to them handed me this note with his bill. Faith in humanity, restored,” the waiter stated on Reddit.

Suddenly, everything feels right in the world.

Pizza Receipt: Playoff Hockey Game Prompts Fan to Cancel Pick-Up

There are few things more important than watching your team tied in the NHL playoffs. At least, that’s what this Vancouver Canucks fan was probably thinking when he turned his pizza pick-up order into a delivery.

Reddit user BrandiBean posted a photo of a receipt informing the delivery boy that a pick-up order of one large pizza with extra chicken was opted out for a delivery since the “canucks have tied game, [customer] cannot leave house to pickup.”

Too bad Vancouver ended up losing to the San Jose Sharks in Game 2 with loss of 3-2 in overtime. Not to mention yesterday’s soul-crushing Game 3 defeat of 5-2. Still, gotta love the fan’s devotion.

Either way, Go Maple Leafs!

Your Prize-Winning Posterior Could Land You A Burger Discount

Didn’t quite make the cut for ‘Best Looking’ in your high school yearbook? That’s okay- just stop by Twisted Root, a local Texas burger chain, and they may handsomely reward you for your magnificent assets.

The restaurant serves up at least 20 different kinds of two cent discounts, including ‘Best Butt’,  to those they find worthy of the title. The restaurant is known for their comical service of assigning customers with celebrity or cartoon names, when they place their order.  I wonder if they give a discount for best hair? I would go for that- my hair is where I keep all my secrets. Anyways…

So if you’re in the Dallas area, why not stop by for a burger and maybe an ego stroke?
(P.S. Am I the only one who finds the ‘Meat is Murder, Tasty Tasty Murder’ tagline hysterical?)
