Living in Austin, we NEVER go down to 6th street because, well, we're grown-ups. We were walking past this bar and heard some really good Southland Blues coming from inside so we went in for a drink. Started a tab, and when I went back for a second round I was told I had no tab going.
Turns out they had given away our credit card to someone else. Honest mistake, right? Say you are sorry and offer something in return. Owner couldn't muster the words, only kept telling me that *HE* didn't do it and telling me to cancel the card. I didn't care if he did it or one of his employees, it's bad form today to give someone's credit card to a stranger.
Later, he offered to void the sale and let us drink but at that point we were so irritated we declined staying, still got charged for our first round and the second round of whoever now has the card.
Amateurish. Shame, it could have been fun.
