have you ever heard of this before
Last night we went to Applebees for dinner, I know not very frugal....but I spent the day cleaning and didn't want to mess up the kitchen. So anywho after we got home I checked my online banking and see that they charged me more then what I signed to authorize on my receipt. I called the manager about it and he said that is because visa (paid with my visa check card) automatically charges 15% for a tip. We left a cash tip on the table for the server that was 20% of the bill, so how I see it the server made 35% tip, and he wasn't even a good server. So the manager told me that the visa does this automatically, that even though the higher amount is showing as a pending transaction, that when it becomes a posted transaction it should be for the lesser amount. This has me confused and wondering if he is right or just pulling my leg.
