THE most AMUSING thing happened today.
... okay, so maybe it wasn't AMUSING when it happened... it was more 'OMFG-WE-ARE-SO-DEAD' kinda SCARY, but you'll see why.
Today's Kampong Glam excursion was very much expected: BORING, RETARDED, REDUNDANT - in other words STUPID.
so when the trip FINALLY ended, we decided to treat ourselves for being responsible little girls and we ate out.
so there we were at cine, Maestro Bistro i think. and we started ordering.
the waiters are waitresses took UBER LONG to serve, [ am i that short. -.-] and when the food finally got here Erik had ALREADY dug in.
anyway, i think the food redeemed them. pretty good steak if i do say so myself, BUT it think the chef should stick to WELL DONE. the medium rare was... so-so. the pasta was good though, ahahs. springy and sweet(:
so there we were, talking when the waitress came with the bill.
prior to that, we'd already kinda tallied the costs and we were relieved to find that WE HAD ENOUGH TO PAY. phew.
HOWEVER. when the bill came, it was FUGGIN' EXPENSIVE.
A WHOLE SEVEN DOLLARS MORE. WHATTHEFUG.
' WHATHEFUG IS UP WITH THEIR GST?! '
AHHHHHHH- we TOTALLY FREAKED OUT.
the STUPIDEST THINGW WAS: WE WERE ONLY THREE DOLLARS SHORT!!!!!!!!
i think the waitress saw our horrified expressions, she went: " i'll come back later? "
so frantically we began calling everyone on our contact list.
" hello? *insertname* where're you now? dyou think you could help me?" " i'm at home right now, what happened?" " oh. umm. nevermindthen thanks" " no seriously, what happened. " " umm i kinda need help but never mind "
so FIFTY-FCUKING PHONE calls later, we decided: we;ll just... TELL THEM.
after A WHOLE HOUR of freaking out, we awaited judgement.
the manager went: oh, never mind la.
0.0 WE COULD'VE SAVED TIME. GAHHHHHH.
but honestly, if we didn't overreact, we wouldn't have given off that whole... 'please-don't-kill-us' vibe. owell.
we walked to the MRT station LAFFING. like. minor adrenaline rush!
wahahahs. i couldn't stop laughing!
we were both thinking:
' THIS IS SO FREAKIN' SURREAL. like. IT ONLY HAPPENS IN MOVIES DOOD! *CONTINUES TO LAUGH*'
can't believe that happened to us.
like i think my heart was still going a mile-a-minute when we boarded the train.
a HUGH relief like. zOMG i could DIE HAPPY.
the highness has worn off somewhat. but still.
i'm SUPER GRATEFUL TO THAT MANAGER.
thankyou SOOOO MUCHHHH.
<3 MAESTRO BISTRO MANAGER.
Erika’s Version of The Incident. Victims describe experience as ‘Surreal and totally unexpected’.
It was like whoa?! That did not just happen. I mean, the frickin chances of it actually happening are like one in a frickin gajillion (copyrighted Erika) and it’s totally movie-esque. Seriously. It happened in EuroTrip.
But then that happened in Paris and they totally skipped out on paying the bill, which might’ve been the smart and streetwise thing to do.
But of course I (and Shi Kaye both) have a conscience so we were GOOD HONEST LEGAL CHILDREN who just had A BIT OF trouble with monetary issues so paid what we could.
And the manager was nice enough to say it was okay but we feel bad so we shall go back and repay the debt we owe (to society?).
It’s also kind of 超恥しい because like who the hell is unlucky enough for this kind of mishap. Well, turns out I am (and Shi Kaye).
At least the food was okay, and the lousy service was redeemed by the nice ManagerDude.
But still, who charges 7 bucks for bloody GST anyway.
