Most likely, the waitress did not notice that the bill was wrong, and then innocently pocketed it as tip. The bartender's counts would be off at the end of the night and their pay would be docked for the 1 beer.Red_Army wrote: ↑i had a situation where my bill at a bar was 25$
it should have been 30$ as i was only charged for 1 beer as opposed to 2
I left 35$ and walked out, because that is what i would have left if the bill was correct
I left it up to the waitress to decide whether or not to pocket the extra $5, or update the bill accordingly
The bartender probably shot him or herself in the foot. This is why the smart bartender does not let the waitress have the drinks until they're properly rung into the system.
