Man Charged $1,666.61 For $16.51 Waffle House Meal

WILLIAMSTON, S.C. (UPI) — Restaurant chain Waffle House apologized to a South Carolina man who was charged $1,666.61 for a $16.51 breakfast.

Jim Andrews of Williamston said he and his wife ate at the Waffle House in Piedmont Friday and he gave the cashier his card to pay the $16.51 bill, WHNS-TV, Greenville, reported Wednesday.

“I sign it, and I look at it again, and it says $1666.61,” he said.

Andrews said the cashier argued with him about the charge, so he put in calls and emails to officials until he was able to contact the Waffle House corporate office, which was able to reverse the pending charge.

“Our accounting department spoke with Mr. Andrews this morning to apologize and correct the matter,” Waffle House said in a statement. “During the conversation, Mr. Andrews confirmed that the money was in his account this morning. Both the store manager as well as the area manager have left voicemails for Mr. Andrews to offer their assistance in the matter. No other incidents of this nature have been brought to my attention.”

Andrews said the most frustrating part of the ordeal was that he was not able to speak with the restaurant’s manager until he contacted the corporate office.

“Make sure you look at these receipts carefully,” Andrews said.
