I decided to eat at Waffle House today. I figured if I’m going to eat carbs, go all out with it. So I ordered the All Star Breakfast. $7.10. I added cheese to my eggs and an extra sausage. The total I came up with in my head was $9.50 plus tax.
When I went in to pay, the cook told me my total was $13.90. I asked him for a breakdown of what I was being charged for. Turns out he had charged me for the two sausage patties that already come with the basic meal.
Always pay attention. Don’t just hand over your hard earned money without making sure you are being charged correctly. The same rule applies for your fares. Make sure you are being paid the correct fare so you aren’t cheated out of anything.
