Just finished a fine dining place this evening. Was nice to get away from the crazy twin 3 year olds (said with love...of course).
I'm mad at myself. I was under reimbursement in my head...then I get the bill. What I thought was a $7-8 side ended up being a $25 side! I verified it was a side when I ordered, but didn't check the price...stupidly. Ugh.
If you are on a budget, make sure you check all prices so you don't go over (if you don't want to)!
Side wasn't all that great either. :-/ Oh well. I know to check on it from now on.
I've been oggling over a new restaurant shop being offered in my area, but because I work full time and really don't do dinner dine in shops, was never able to do it. Monday night I was coming home from a shop on the other side of town and saw this particular restaurant so I decided to stop in and pick up dinner to take home on my own dime. (Note: this was a burger type place that in my mind was about in the 5Guys range) I got two regular burgers, two french fries, no drinks, nothing added, and my bill was over $25 dollars!!! So now I figure that if I do the shop and take a friend I will still go over the reimbursement, so I got that one out of my system!
