Matador - Fool Me Once, Shame on You. Fool Me Twice, Well, Still Shame on You

Last week I enjoyed an afternoon at Matador with a fellow BGGer. We had a couple of drinks, some apps and watched some Olympics. When it was time to go, we did what most people do, gave two credit cards and asked them to split the bill down the middle. We each signed our slips, left a nice tip, and off we went. So imagine my surprise when later in the week I was looking at my bank statement online and there appeared not one, but TWO charges from Matador. Instead of splitting the bill between two cards, they put both charges on mine!

I probably wouldn't be so irate if this wasn't the second time they did this. On March 30, 2008 I blogged about this exact same thing!
Seriously, how hard is it to run two separate credit cards?

Wow, thanks for the drinks and snacks! I guess Matador decided you should pay for me that day. Ha!

This has happened to me as well as several of my friends.

oh the matador fails on so many levels.

unrelatedly, but worth sharing, they kept making my drink wrong, and after sending it back twice, i just asked for the ingredients as separate shots and mixed it myself.

they almost lost my credit card once and tried to blame me when it wasn't with the bill when the gave it back to me... low and behold, it fell out when the waitress was walking to the table. lucky someone didn't see it and pick it up before they found it. they have also messed up on my check several times.
