We love Asian food.
One of our favorite Is a Japanese all you can eat restaurant we found at the Lansdown Mall in
We sit at a table with a menu and we have to tick off the numbers we want on another slip of paper and give them to the waiter who brings the food to you.
After having a wonderful luncheon outing with my sons, we got the tab
And it had every item we ate with the sum $o.oo beside it
So we had a tally looking something like this:
Knowing how serious the Japanese people are, I told my boys we can have some fun here with the cashier.
So my oldest went to pay the bill and we stood and watched as he explained to the Cashier that we do not have to pay because the tally is wrong.
0.0 plus 0.00 plus 0.00 plus plus plus plus plus etc.. all zeros, does not equal 29.23.
The cashier got all excited trying to explain to him NO! NO! NO.!
Half in English and half in Japanese.
As my son continued the charade with this poor cashier, who was getting red in the face, trying to explain the tab, we were giggling on the side.
Then my son laughed and told him ok I know.
It’s a buffet with a set price per person but the cashier could not explain it properly, being Japanese.
When he saw we were pulling his leg he laughed and shook his head.
He must have thought we were crazy white people lol
On our way home we discussed this and agreed that the way the tab was done we could have very well won our case had we pursued it.
What they should have written was 3 buffets = 29.23 or something to this effect.
When you look for opportunities you can still have some innocent fun in life.:)
