10. Oh those darn bills that come around after we eat at a restaurant. How can we possibly avoid them? … Those pesky little things… Hey, I got it. Let’s have a heart attack… or a fake one… that’s just as good. Jeremy Heath did that after eating a nice meal at a restaurant… a lot. Only to be taken by ambulance to a hospital each time and being discharged shortly after with a clean bill of health. Now Jeremy gets all his meals for free… as he sits in jail for fraud.
9. Chris Baker went to a $9 all you can eat special buffet meal for Valentine’s Day. He was eating alone and when he finished, he took out a pet mouse from his pocket and put it on the floor. Then, pointing it out to a restaurant employee, he demanded his money back. Embarrassed employees apologized and gave him back his money…. his $9. But when pest control was called in, they found the mouse and said it was a domestic pet… with a haircut. Now who gives their pet mouse a haircut, for crying out loud. Then, after replaying the restaurant’s inside video, they could see Baker releasing the mouse with the cool haircut. He was arrested, ordered to pay the $9 and also about $70 for causing the incident. He was also banned from the restaurant for a year. I think this is enough for a lifetime ban, myself.
8. Some really smart customers found a way to select a meal from a McDonald’s self-service dispenser. They would order a $20 dinner then scroll down and hit a button that kept reducing the price of it… to the point of it only costing them $9.95. It had two Big Macs, two cheeseburgers, four small fries, two large soft drinks and two medium soft drinks. Not bad for 10 bucks. But McDonald’s has cracked down on the loophole in their system and now a $20 meal… will be just that…so be prepared to fork it over.
7. More than 120 diners celebrating a baptism packed a restaurant, and just before the desert was served, they all got up and filed quickly out of the place, practically like a stampede to get out of there. They were all gone inside of a minute and it’s obvious it was planned. The meals had cost $3,750, and the restaurant was only left with the $900 deposit the party paid in advance. Ya know, it’s pretty bad when a group celebrating a BAPTISM skips out on the bill.
6. Cody James Burton, wearing his police officer uniform, went to a restaurant expecting to get a greatly reduced meal because he was an officer. But some other officers eating there tipped off the manager that the guy was NOT a cop, just impersonating one to get a cheaper meal. Burton was arrested and charged with impersonating a police officer, among other charges.
5. While eating at a buffet, Stevie Lambert told employees there was a caterpillar in his chicken dish. And sure enough, there was. After he demanded and was given a refund, he and his friends laughed about it. But later, a video in the restaurant showed that he planted the creepy crawly himself. I doubt if he gets served there again.
4. A conman looked a little like English singer Francis Rossi. So he thought he would try to rack up all the benefits he could by promising to sing at a charity fundraiser. He even promised his old buddy Paul McCartney would be there with him. When the event came, he said Paul couldn’t make it, as he took in all the food and festivities. But when asked to play his guitar and sign, he cited arthritis as a problem in doing that. With that, the organizers realized they had been duped. Now I realize I have a strong resemblance to Paul McCartney… wonder how far I could get with that… I’ll be fine as long as they don’t ask me to play … or sing… or show up… she loves you yeah yeah yeah…
3. In Texas, two older teens went to a restaurant and faked a marriage proposal just so the restaurant would give them free deserts. DESERTS??? Really? It’s come to this? They later said they did it because of having a terrible week. Ya know, even in my worst weeks, I have never tried to scam anybody out of anything. But these two thought it was “Really fun…” and are planning to make a longtime thing out of it. Yeah, these two deserve each other. Till death do they part… or until one of them DESERTS the other.
2. Eric Austin, a 46-year-old homeless man, would don a fine suit and speak in a posh British accent when entering restaurants. After eating, he quickly escaped. His bill for eating at seven of the restaurants amounted to about $825. After a while, posters showing him were posted in the area to alert all restaurants of his scam. He was finally caught and jailed.
1. Last December, in Los Angeles, Diane Guilmette met a man on the Plenty of Fish dating site. She agreed to meet him at a fine restaurant for dinner after he sent her a very flattering message. He ordered a lot of food for them, and a lot of wine, and they were having the greatest of times… Then he excused himself to make a phone call, and he never came back, forcing Diane herself to pay the $163 food and drink bill. When she tried to message him again on the dating website, he had blocked her. When Diane posted her story about the guy, several other women came forward saying he had done the same to them. Hey… it’s creeps like that who give all of us decent guys a bad name. So if any of you L.A. people know who this guy is, please let your friendly neighborhood police officer in on it. I’m sure he would be delighted to make sure this guy gets his free meals in a jail cell.
