49 People That Left Crazy Receipts That Speak Volumes to Customer Service Struggles

Mathing when it's time to 'settle up' is hard, and especially if you're out drinking yourself stupid like many of these poor-tipping, brain-incapacitated boozehounds evidently were. I'm all for the humor, but by the grace of all that is good and reasonable in this crazy world, don't fail to leave a decent tip. Working on bended, tired knee, and used 'n abused non-slip shoe, through the hospitality industry is no easy business. I'm the first to complain about my old days of slugging it through double shifts as a busboy/dishwasher (team bitch) turned waiter, who consistently counted on tips to put a little extra meat on an otherwise skeletal budget. If you can't afford to tip well don't drink/eat out, but if you can, take inspiration from the people that provided decent gratuity with a solid side of humor on some of these receipts.

If you listen to Steve, that guy who stands at the end of my block holding a sign that reads “The End of Nigh,” then the end is nigh. Steve’s foresight that the world might be coming to an end should launch you into action, perhaps learning some important survival skills on how to survive the apocalypse. Sure, it’s important to know how to skin a deer with a paper clip, but also important, learning how to open a can of food with a spoon because the irony of having 10,000 spoons when all you need is a knife is no longer going to scare us.

Or are we?

Luckily for you and Steve, a YouTuber is here to help. Popular Life Hacker Dave Hax, who should rebrand to "Life Hax" immediately and has taught us how to make a chocolate Coca Cola bottle and "magnetic slime," has the solution we've been looking for. In this video, Hax teaches you how to open those pesky Campbell's chunky soup cans with a spoon. Use this information well. When the mysterious race of cloaked mutants has taken the world’s supply of can openers, this video could save your life. 

Be ready. Stay alive. Stock spoons.

One of the world's most expensive meals ever (accidentally) signed off on. A man who has chosen to remain anonymous for suspected motivations to retain some dignity, accidentally rang up a $1.3 million dollar meal at Inverurie's Rajpoot Indian Restaurant in Scotland. Before that fat tip, the guy's meal, which included three entrees and drinks came out to be less than $100.



The Evening Express reports that restaurant owner, Abdul Wahid said: "When he came to pay I gave him the card machine and he asked to put in the amount himself but it didn't go through.


"I then had to phone the bank for him and I answered all of the questions and they then gave me the confirmation code.


"At this time he still had the card machine so I never saw the amount he had typed in.


"But 10 minutes later I took the machine and looked at it and I just said 'oh my god what's happened, what have you done my friend'. I looked at the receipt and then he looked at it and he just said 'oh my …'



"He then rang his bank up to say it was the wrong amount and cancel it before paying the correct amount."


"This has to be one of the most expensive meals there has ever been. I have never experienced anything like this. It was really, really shocking,” said Wahid. “I still can’t believe it.”
