Cash And Curry

Honesty Is The Best Quality

A customer who fled a Swansea curry house without paying has finally paid up - 13 years later. The mystery diner left the Indian restaurant in Mumbles, Swansea, without paying for the £10 meal back in 1996. Now he has sent police £60 cash and an anonymous letter - but officers found the building had been knocked down and a block of luxury flats built in its place.

FOOTNOTE: Flee-for-all.

Nice interest payment.

That's so weird. Wonder why it took him so long? In 5 years of waiting tables I only had one family do that, but it was pretty obvious they were planning to skip out on the bill, and the manager was able to flag them down in the parking lot. He did manage to make them pay after threatening to call the police. No tip, obviously.

He was obviously trying to curry favour...
(that was bad, even for me!)

Guilt is a powerful thing.

Well...that's what I call a "conscience." Glad to hear it! Hope they can track down the restaurant's former owners...that would be a nice bit of pocket change during these shaky economic times...

Sounds like it's never too late for a guilty conscience...

Perhaps it took all that time for him to summon up the "curryage" to do it! (sorry! boom boom)
