    We haven't done this in a while. A restaurant customer owed us 500 bucks for awhile. We have made every attempt to collect it. We have a judgement form Small Claims. Many phone calls, statements etc.

    So we went into this fancy restaurant tonight. Shimp Cocktails 11 bucks each. Manhattans 7 bucks each. Entrees 24 bucks each. Bill came to $116 bucks. I took out a business card and wrote on the back. "We will send you a credit memo for $116" and signed my name. My name was printed on the front as well.

    When the waitress came I handed her a $20 bill for her tip and the card. I said,"That I would like to put my bill on our house account and here is my card."

    She said, "Does the owner know about this?"

    I said, "He will."

    She said,"Okay, thank you very much, come again."

    I said, "We will."

    Mary Lou will send them a credit memo in the morning.

    That's a good one, at least you're getting something out of the deal.

    Benncool, if you ever go to court and need a character witness give me a call. I will testify that you are quite a character!

    Good for you except I would have ran up the bar tab to the $500.

    You must of had too much liver damage at Diceville.

    Way to go Benncool, we've been burned a few times too, and have judgements as well; we've learned our lesson though, and now we make initial copies of checks received from new customers. When we got our last judgement, the judge asked, "do you know how to go about collecting?" We said, sure wish we had an account #, and the judge smiled...

    Just hope the cheap ass owner doesn't deduct it from the waitress's pay.
