Sorry OP, but you should always check your balance. Technology is great nowadays :)
I agree that you should always check but sometime it will get denied for no reason. where I work it happen a lot and half the time it our machines. I have one lady who come in all the time if she swipes her card it gets denied but if we type in her number it works.
In the great words of Kanye, "It's dishes in the back, y'all can't leave."
For some reason, I've noticed Sarcasm doesn't go over well on here. I guess it just goes to show how many people don't always understand it. I thought your Kanye comment was pretty true and funny. He makes a ton of hilariously uneducated comments and he thinks he's brilliant.
So this restaurant lets its staff tease and ridicule in this situation? After being treated like that, I'd be talking to the manager about making the meal free. It's embarrassing enough to get declined; the staff were just being dicks.
Unprofessional, true, but if they can't pay then they're as good as deadweight to the restaurant in any case. If I realized I couldn't pay I would EXPECT to be teased about it (mind you, my town is a bit more laid back than most). They'd find a way to settle the bill one way or the other.
Agreed. I work in a grocery store and see people whose cards get declined or who forgot their wallets and can't pay multiple times a day. I would never laugh or embarrass them because aside from being unprofessional it would also be rude and unfair because these things happen to everyone at some point. I highly doubt that none of those servers ever got declined for something. (And yes, I know it's different in a restaurant, but still, no need to be assholes)
