I'll try to make this a quick story:
3 of us ordered ice coffees.
4th had coffee already, asked for an iced alternative.
Waiter suggested an iced chocolate drink.
Waiter suggested a shot of Bailey's to make it interesting.
Drink served was great except 4th suggested a little more Bailey's would make it perfect.
That drink was $24.
It was a packet of Swiss Miss and hot water served over ice and a shot of Bailey's.
We were floored and, laughing, asked for a breakdown.
It was something like this:
over ice-$4 more
Then they charged for two shots of Bailey's at $6.50 ea.
I'm done getting robbed at restaurants.
It's no one's fault, rents are excrutiating, but I just can't help perpetuate the nonsense anymore.
