Man Goes to Ridiculous Lengths to Get Out of Paying Restaurant Bill

Say What!? 13

moneyYou know that feeling when you're out at a restaurant, having a great time, maybe you order a little too much ... and then the bill comes. You think to yourself, Ugh ... do I really owe THAT much? But you shake it off, pay the bill, and go on your merry way.

Well, that's not exactly how things went for Andrew Palmer, a 46-year-old serial "Dine and Dasher" who did the unthinkable to get out of paying a $50 bill at an Italian restaurant. Personally, I am shocked and disgusted that someone would stoop to such a low level just to save a few bucks. It's sad, really.

Head over to Huffington Post to see the horrific antics he pulled, which landed him in jail. And trust me, whatever you're thinking it could be ... it's so much worse.

Is that all the stir is now? Click bait for HuffPo?

Haven't you noticed Cass? All of their posts are just re-writes of either HuffPo or Daily Mail.

I agree with the others. You couldn't just simply write another sentence or two and just tell us what he did and give credit to the full story at Huffington Post? Jeez, why should I even bother with the Stir anymore?

Is this what passes for journalism these days?!? "Hey, here's a link to a story someone wrote. Go over there and check it out" Talk about lazy and useless as a writer.

Who pays for the EMS response?     That bill would way higher than the food.    

If they're all familiar with him as indicated,   why do they serve him in the first place?
