Giardino Pizzeria in North Vancouver STEALS $30 from a paying customer & calls cops!

Reading this really bothered me, I can't believe an established restaurant would do such a thing.
Full story quoted from Facebook post - https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?f...9583022&type=1

Quote:


Here's the story.. absolutely disgusting.

Introducing the $37 dollar sandwich from Giardino Pizzeria on 115 15th st. W. Lonsdale North Vancouver.

So I walk into this place hungry at 10pm. Order the pulled beef sandwich ($7.42 with tax) hand him a $50 he hands me back $12.60.... I tell him, he refuses to give me my change saying it is my fault. I said no you need to make sure you are giving proper change to the public that is part of your job, he tells me to call the cops...

I call the non-emergency line, cause let's face it its $30 bucks the woman on dispatch tells me its a civil dispute and they do not get involved ... Ok is there anything I can do ? No it is a civil dispute between you and the manager... Manager is his girlfriend standing right beside him laughing. No joke they were laughing the whole time . OK hang up. Talk to the guy again calmly he tells me angrily to get off the property "I am calling the police!!!" I say "Great please do", I leave the restaurant and wait on the sidewalk because that is his right to ask me to leave his property.

3 police cars show up, I tell one of the officers the situation and I say I know the dispatch just told me there is nothing to do about the $30 between me and the manager, I am sorry if you're wasting your time but I wasn't going to leave the sidewalk while this guy phones the police after stealing $30 from me( in the meantime I'm glancing inside and they are both still laughing away) I said to the officers, I'm glad they can have a sense of humour about this. The officers agree with me they apologize for this guy but still nothing they can do.

They ask if I want to press charges for a non $30 related issue, I say no sorry you guys had to come down here, the officers say "no no its fine we understand and now we know as well now to never come here" they suggest to me to spread this story over social media, just not to be slanderous. Of course. They apologize and say take care. Pick up the $37 dollar special sac off the sidewalk, get back to my buddies house and open the bag to a sandwich that looks like it was prepared by a toddler. Anyways, sorry for the long story I could not let this slide. The worst part was that, they kept laughing the whole time, this sandwich hustler knew what he was doing. Hope it was worth it you charlatans.

Please friends and common folk do me justice and never ever go to this place. I have never dealt with this kind of back alley sandwich hustle.
Touche Giardino Pizzeria, touche ...
Here's the facebook page of the restaurant - already receiving some terrible reviews: https://www.facebook.com/giardino.pi...alad?ref=br_tf

Probably a bunch of idiots that the owners hired to manage the shop late at night.

That said, they deserve everything coming to them as there's no excuse for this type of behaviour.

It's hard to corroborate the story on whether or not he was given the proper change. But, there is no logical reason for this guy to go through all the fuss...unless he was a former employee or disgruntled over a past altercation.

Wait...

Isn't 5% tax on $7.00 = 35 cents?.....for a total of $7.35?
Where the fuck does $7.42 come from...

I'm aware of a 5% GST, 7% PST, and 12% HST...but that business has been scamming customers at a 6% rate???

Say...$1000 in sales / day. That's extra $10 bucks per day.

That easily add up to an extra $3650/year to blow on a vacation, latest iPhone for the whole family, utilities bills or...hookers.

If it was "regular" employees all the owner has to do is fire them and post up on their FB page that as soon as he became aware of the issue it was dealt with. Give the guy back his change and add on a $100 gift card for dinner to apologize. Owner would get back their rep pretty damn fast.

That receipt is interesting. Why punch in cash tendered of $50 if you're going to scam the guy? Now guy has a receipt showing he gave $50. If you're smart, you should punch in $20 cash tendered.
