After a Colorado man was overcharged multiple times at the same restaurant, he knew something was suspicious.
Doug Woodward and his wife were overcharged at a Colorado Springs Texas Roadhouse, but didn’t think much of it. Then, the next time they returned, it happened again. The couple was furious and asked to speak to a manager, who discovered that a server had altered the tip amount.
Following the second incident, Woodward and his wife decided to stay away from that particular Texas Roadhouse location.
After about a year, Woodward thought he’d give the location another chance and was shocked when the same thing happened.
“I think the odds of being struck by lightning are probably better than this happening to the same person three times at Texas Roadhouse,” Woodward told KXRM .
On their third visit, Woodward and his wife treated another couple to dinner. The total bill was $105.01. Woodward’s wife tipped $10, for a total of $115.01. When she checked her bank statement, however, she saw that her new total was $123.01. The server had changed to tip to $18.
The couple spoke to the location’s manager, who found a copy of the merchant receipt. That’s when they saw what happened.
“Clearly there was a small zero added to the zero here and a straight line drawn through the 5 to try to make that appear to be an 8,” Woodward said.
