When In Rome .....

Some Charges Are Very Hard To Digest

The deputy mayor of Rome has offered an official apology to a Japanese man who was charged $1,200 (including a $200 service charge) for a meal at the famous Il Passetto restaurant in the Italian capital. The couple later turned down the offer of an all-expenses paid return trip to Rome from the Italian government.

FOOTNOTE: Check the check.

Should think so too.

I would have to pass on the Passeto if that were the charge!

It's me again....meant to comment on the dust invasion over there...are you in the middle of that? I've seen some amazing photos and hope to see some of yours of it.

Can you breathe over there? Heard about the fog on the news this morning.

I'd be happy to take that all-expense paid trip to Rome if the Japanese couple doesn't want it. Even with flaws, Rome and Romans are wonderful.

It must have been the price of the wine...what else could it have been??
Hope all is well where you are.

An all-expense paid trip to Rome? I'd go!

Fair dues, at least they apologised.
I wouldn't have been able to resist the expenses-paid offer, though!

I'd have thrown up and asked for a refund!

Well said, Eddie! And I would have accepted the trip, too!

Maybe they can send them a take-away, instead?
