feeling ill

so, at the show, i used my debit card to order roughly $32 in drinks. at the end of the night, i closed my tab, rounded up a dollar, and then crammed all the singles i had left ($8-9) into the little folded bill thing, and gave it back to the bartenders. 

today my bank account is showing a $41 charge that's gone through, and then two more pending charges for $10, and $20, respectively.  

so then i go and check their reviews, and multiple people are like, “they double charged me,” “they added a 62% gratuity charge,” and “changed the tip amount after.”

people are also like, “they're impossible to get ahold of, won't answer the phone, won't return calls.”

i'm freaking the fuck out. 

i'm in such a bad place for confrontation and conflict. 

if the other 2 charges go through, i'm going to have to dispute them, and go to the club to get my receipt...fuuuuck i don't want to do any of this.

Use a credit card. Instead of being out of the money and needing to go begging for the receipt, you could call your credit card company and report the transactions as being in error and that would be that.

I'm the same way.

I have about 4 major things I keep putting off because its over the phone.

I usually try e-mailing people first.

You've got this though! You can do It! Those MFERS are taking YOUR hard earned money!

Get em!

i’m really hoping that the pending ones just disappear, and i won't have to do anything...yeahhhh lol 

but if it goes through, i will probably lose my shit over this...i can be a pretty assertive human, when i need to be

Damn. New management or something? That's worse when its a place you're familiar with..

i was wondering that myself...the negative reviews involving financial stuff only went back about 8-9 months, so i'm wondering if someone shady took over :/ before that the only complaints are the usual “bathrooms too small, drinks overpriced” kinda content.

GOT IT HANDLED! 

the initial charge will still go through, but the weird secondary charges are all gone, and i don't have to argue with anyone or go hunting receipts down
