Not About Food 19

Bill is not itemized

Dh and I recently discovered a really great pizza joint about 30 minute drive from home. We've been a few times now and really, it is worth the drive (and we have a lot of pizza places nearby).

The thing is - they give the bill and it just has the total hand-written on it. Not only does it not itemize out the food and drinks, but it doesn't itemize out the tax, either. More times than I can count in the past, we've had situations where we were not correctly charged for items. Twice in the last few years, we were given another table's bill altogether.

This last time, I asked if we could get an itemized bill and the server said that the establishment doesn't do that, but that she could get a menu for me so I could do the math myself. I passed on that.

It's not something that is going to keep us from going there. More of a bother, really. But I realized that this is quite literally the only place where I can recall EVER dining and not receiving some sort of itemized bill. Weird. Dh really dislikes not seeing the details, and it bothers me somewhat, but not enough to make a deal out of it or stop eating their delicious pies. What would you do in this situation?
