My beloved son was going to take his girlfriend out on Valentine’s Day for dinner. Since he’s new to this, I warned him that restaurants tend to rip people off on Valentine’s Day, since, well……………they can. He took her out to a nice place that recommended, and between the two of them, his bill was about $412. (I will note that they are not drinking age, so it wasn’t because of wine or cocktails). He didn’t ask me to do so, but I was very puzzled at the high figure, so I got in touch with the restaurant to get the invoice. The first portion of it was – – how shall we say this? – – not particularly informative.

Here’s a disaster du jour.

Umm. OK!
