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.

W/H in Piedmont? Must be on I-85, the intelligence level in Piedmont isn't very high to begin with. I have had W/H cashiers' try to charge me for things I didn't get or even make up price that is not listed on the menu. They really love to stick it to folks who go in there drunk. And the funniest thing about W/H, they have a list of rules on the wall.

"...minus the original cost of his original bill." Excellent writing there...

I stopped in a big chain grocery store a few years ago to pick up a few things. Near the check-out counter they had a rack with flower and vegetable seeds on it and a sign that they were 10 packs for a dollar so I picked out ten. When they rang up my purchase the total was over $10,000. I laughed and told the cashier I was going to have to put the $1,000/pack seeds back because I didn't have that much cash on me.

Would your rather read huffpost? I for one can't stand that outfit. They keep telling me that I made an error when I try to sign in using aol. They want everybody to use f/b and I do not want anything to do with f/b. Some way or another they are getting to people.

I wonder if he didn't tip? Had he added on the tip he would have seen the mistake before leaving the restaurant.

A lot of people leave a cash tip on the table.
