Burger suck!

This happened to me on Friday, and really got to me at St Pancras in London.

I had 30 mins to wait for my train, so decided to grab some food. In St Pancras, there's a place called Fine Burger Co. Having never tried it, thought I'd give it a go. I should've realised by the other guy complaining as I walked up to the counter that things weren't going to go right. I ordered a standard burger meal with a side of onion rings, totally £9.45. I sat down to eat, and as I was finishing the meal, noticed the menu. Now, the burger meal was advertised as £6.95, and the onion rings were £1.50, meaning the total should've been £8.45. I got my receipt, and went up to the counter, thinking it was simply an error on the cashiers part.
No such luck!!! According to the girl serving, the particular drink I had with the meal is an extra £1. No-where does it say this on the menu, and she didn't mention it when I ordered. I told her this, and instead of apologising (which could've been the least she could do) she kept telling me I was wrong, and it wasn't her problem, and then refused to get the manager for me.
I couldn't stick around as had a train to catch, but really annoyed me! :(

tl;dr-- The best way to run a business is not to screw and tell (your customers), occasionally show up to do your job, and harass your customer's customers.

Dear diner waiter:

I can almost understand you making the mistake with my onion-potato pancakes and bringing me onion rings. But when I say, "Excuse me, but I asked for the onion-potato pancakes, not the onion rings," your reply could be, "I'm sorry about that", or perhaps "Are you sure? I could have thought I heard...".

It should not be "No, you ordered onion rings, don't argue with me."

Then you ignored me when I was trying to get your attention for some water, or any drink at all.

And then I had to ask the host to get you to give me my check. You refused to pay any attention to me at all after I tried to check something.

And then... you put "tip" on the check. I was eating alone. What the hell?

Not only did I leave you no tip, but I had the cashier remove your entry for tip from my check. She asked if I wanted to leave a tip, and I said no and explained why. I paid and left.

I've been coming to this diner for twenty years on and off. I've never seen you before, and hopefully I never will. You were the worst waiter I've had since the one in college who clocked out in the middle of our time at Denny's and didn't make sure there was someone to bring us our food. You're an idiot.
