Math-Booze: A Bad Drink

on October 16, 2013

Sadly bartenders, and definitely anyone else in the service industry who’s been around drinkers, learn that booze-and-math-do-not-a-delicious-drink-make.

When using a credit card, the customer receives a receipt that looks something like:

Amount: __________
Tip: __________
Total: __________

But often, once the booze starts flowing, all these numbers don’t add up to the correct amounts…

Example: Last night a man hands me his receipt with a, “You’re so great! NIGHT!” He walks off.

His receipt:

Amount: $13.75
Tip: $3.25
Total: $14.00

… …

Thank you sir for the thought – I’ll just have to settle for that $0.25 instead…

I think most of us would prefer if drinkers just wrote this:

At least he's honest...

    Bahahaha. I’ve totally written the total and in the tip line leave “Figure it out.” Long, long time ago…

    I do all my drinking in cash. It’s easier to see when I’m done (broke).
