The couple arrived back at the Irish camp site and realised that they had left the restaurant without paying their bill.
They told the camp site manager who rang the restaurant and spoke to the manager of the restaurant – “no problem, thanks for ringing” …the couple could pop in the next day and settle up.
Twenty minutes later the restaurant owner (no stranger to dodging bills himself) arrived at the camp site accompanied by three Gardai looking for his money from the couple.
The whole incident was highly embarrassing for everyone … the couple handed over the money (I’m guessing they didn’t tip!).
The camp site manager never recommended that restaurant to his customers again, he still operates a good business and lives to tell this incredible little story and the restaurant has long shut down..mostly PR and your reputation is about what you do yourself.
Must be a lesson in all of that somewhere!
