Brought Food That Wasn't Ordered and Charged For It

Pookipichu | Oct 8, 2013 01:52 PM

So I was eating at a neighborhood restaurant and had just finished a moderately expensive meal (expensive for me). I was debating getting dessert, since a) I was somewhat full b) dessert was pricey ($10 for a slice of pie, just pie)

The waiter asked me if I wanted to order the pie and I decided against getting dessert since I really didn't want to spend any more money. I ask for the check.

Instead of bringing the check, the waiter comes back with a slice of pie and winks at me, I thank him profusely and with surprise.

After I finish the pie, he comes back with the check. I open it to see I was charged for the pie.

I ate the pie, I have no issue with paying for what I eat..... but the incident rubbed me the wrong way. I didn't want to ask him "hey, did you mean to charge me for this?" since I'm pretty sure most waiters know how to comp a dessert. But I didn't like having choice taken away from me when I refrained from ordering pie due to budget.
