Man accidentally charged $1,666 at Waffle House

Man Accidentally Charged $1,666 At Waffle House

Jimmy Andrews came to Waffle House with a huge appetite ... and left with a massive tab.

He was given a check for $16.51 at a Waffle House in Piedmont, South Carolina, but when he went to the register, it was rung up for $1,666.61 instead. Apparently, the '6' on the register was stuck. 'I almost had a heart attack,' he said.

Andrews didn't realize the mistake at the time, and his account was charged. WHNS reports that after days of stress for Andrews, the issue was finally resolved.

Waffle House issued a statement apologizing to Andrews and refunded him his money -- minus the original cost of his original bill.

Waffle should have given him at least a free meal out of their mistake. $1600 out my checking account may have cleared, but might cause problems if my house payment hit a day later.

Omg get over it. The news has really slipped to an all time low. I work in retail, this crap happens daily and nobody has EVER reported it to the news for 15 minutes of fame...How freaking lame is this country...

Oh come on. Was it a slow news day or something? Was there really a reason to report on this? I could understand if the Waffle House had refused to refund his money, but, that not being the case, I see no need to report this at all. I guess everyone is looking for their 15 minutes of fame,

They can fill up the news with stupid stuff and they dont have to keep posting about all the problems within our current adminstration. Anything but negative POTUS news.

Waffle House's use to be a good clean place to eat. Then they started hiring scabby crabby wart bearing women to work there and they threw out the cleaning supplies. You stick to the booths and the menus are filthy. Coffee cups are stained and awful. That's why we call it the Awful House!

Didn't he have to sign the dam thing? and days of stress? I've have this happen before, one call back to the restaurant and it was fixed before they closed our the credit card charges at the end of the night, problem solved.
