Ummmmm, YEAH, try stolen. Ok, we really have no proof, but we think it was stolen. After I tell this story, tell me what you think.
So, on my dads birthday, we ended up at Olive Garden using gift cards that hubby had won through work. We had enough to almost cover our whole bill.
We went to the one over by Disney since we had been in that area (we eventually ended up at Disney Springs walking around before dinner – one of the many places we went that day). It was about an hour before closing time. We sat down and had a very personable, young lady take care of our order. We had told her we had been all over central FL and were really tired. Probably not the best thing to say.
We ordered and everything was going great. The food was good and the server was attentive. We really had no complaints. Of course, it was too much for us to eat, so we put our leftover food into boxes. The bill came and hubby saw that we owed a little over $3. His gift cards covered almost the whole bill. He handed her the gift cards and his debit and said, “There is enough on the gift cards to cover all but the $3 and your tip. Please put the $3 on my credit card and I will put the tip on it too.” She said ok and ran off. They were closing and we were exhausted. She came back with the receipts and he signed their copy and put the tip on it. All this time, she is talking and joking around with us.
We got up and were walking out. He then turned around and asked about the little chocolate mints. They had not given us any and he just wanted one. So another server said, “Here, I will give them to you since she didnt take care of you.” She gave him about 20. OH MY! lol She then saw the shirt hubby had on and started laughing and joking around about it. His shirt had “Just Another Sexy Bald Guy” on it. lol
We left out, got home put the food in the fridge and went right to sleep. Yesterday, we decided to go and get some milk since we were out. Hubby opens up his wallet and (with a shocked look on his face) asks where his debit card is. Heck, I dont know – its your wallet. We tore the “condo” apart looking for it and the van. It was nowhere to be found. After we thought about it, she never put it back in the little folder that they had you the receipts to sign. When we first discovered it gone, I called Olive Garden and spoke with someone. They checked the safe and did not see it.
After we searched, hubby called back and spoke with the manager and general manager. They called the server at home and said that she said she gave it back. They have not located it at all. So, if they dont have it and never gave it back and we dont have it, then where is it? We called the customer service line for our bank last night and canceled the card. They are sending a new one. We assume that she took the card AND if she meant to use it for gas or anything – she is going to get a surprise! We have read where servers will take the card number and use them a few days later.
Honestly, I dont know if she took it or if it accidentally dropped somewhere and she didnt know it. All I know is that it was not with our receipts when she brought them to us. Now that we think back, she never brought it back to us and we were so tired – we didnt catch it. We have been monitoring our account, and so far – nothing unusual has posted to it. We both were like, GREAT!! Only US! lol So, what are your thoughts and should I write corporate about it? Now that I have looked into it, that area has had many break-ins with cars.
Well, hubby did get the job that he interviewed for. It is commission based, but it is a very familiar territory for him – so he should do good. He is using it as a stepping stone to move up or use it until he can get something better. Just keep us in prayer with the whole job situation. He is being drug tested today (no problem there) and as soon as they get it back, he will be able to start work. He did quit the other job last night. We found out things about that job that were just shady – but thats for another day.
I have breakfast dishes I need to wash. Ugh, a mothers job is never done. lol Have an awesome day everyone. Thanks for reading.
