  • $3,000 Tip May Have Been a Scam

    You may remember the great story out of Scranton, Pennsylvania and a $3,000 tip as part of the “Tips for Jesus” movement.

    This past June, Mariana Lambert was going through the normal duties of serving customers at Alfredo’s Pizza Café. A customer by the name of Eric Smith dined at the restaurant. His bill came to $13. Not only did Eric pay the $13 but he also included a tip in the amount of $3000.

    The restaurant honored the tip and gave the money to Mariana. Mariana says the money will make a huge difference in her life.

    Now, we learn that Eric contacted his bank and disputed the tip amount. The issue is that Alfredo’s Pizza Café is out $3,000 and the issue is going to court.

  • We Like Our Burger King to Be UN-leaded

    Attention: always check your sandwich.

    In the United Kingdom, Leanne Daly said her Burger King chicken sandwich didn’t “feel” right. She checked and was shocked to find a pencil in the burger.

    Leanne said the pencil might have been similar to an eyeliner pencil. She contacted the restaurant, asked for her money back and got it.

    BK added that the pencil was actually a grease pencil. This gives workers the ability to write on food wrappers.

    “My son passed me my burger, I had some and felt something weird. So I opened it up and a pencil rolled out. I thought ‘what the hell is that’ as it looked like an eyeliner,” Daly told UK publication ECHO. “So straight away I called them up and asked for an explanation and told them I had something in my burger. I described what it looked like and she told me ‘not to worry’ as it was only a grease pencil they used to mark the burger wrappers.”
