While overcharging doesn’t happen all the time, it happens often enough that I now check bills, even if it makes me look like a dried up old sphincter.
About one in four times in Canberra I find a little something extra added to our bills.
As a couple we don’t get it often in the loftier establishments, but groups often get hit with extra charges.
Usually it’s the middle to pedestrian eateries.
If something is slipped onto the bill, I don’t tip.
