MUNDANE MYSTERIES: What really happens if you accidently forget payment and can’t pay your bill at a restaurant?

We’ve all been there before… you get to the end of a meal when you’re at a restaurant and suddenly realize you left your wallet or purse at home. Oh no… are they going to make you wash the dishes?! Most likely not.

What usually happens as long as your honest about it is the manager will allow you to leave and come back with the payment. Some places will allow you to call back with the credit card info over the phone, others might as you to leave some kind of collateral so they know you’ll return to pay.

Either way, make sure you double check that you have money before you leave the house so you don’t have to worry about this problem.
