I’ve witnessed my fair share of VIPs stiffing their waitress on the tip, but rarely do they risk the bad publicity of skipping the check altogether. Britney Spears, on the other hand, fully dined and dashed at The Cheesecake Factory this week! Brit Brit was out with boyfriend David Lucado, and left their $30 bill unpaid as they exited.
I’m not sure which is more embarrassing about Brit’s dine and dash: the fact that she forgot to pay the check, or the fact that she was at The Cheesecake Factory to begin with. On a date. And it’s definitely not a rare occurrence. According to a statement The Cheesecake Factory made to Page 6, “Britney dines in our restaurants quite often and is a wonderful guest. We know that this was just an honest mistake.”
Lord knows B has indulged in her share of icky chain restaurant food in her day, but usually of the take out and bolt variety. What’s next: TGIFridays? Red Robbin? A really fancy dinner at The Olive Garden? Chain restaurants are for commoners, Brit: dine like the pop princess you are at a respectable hotspot, or with a private chef.
Let me cleanse my palate of all things laminated menu and get back on topic. Apparently, the whole dine and dash was a miscommunication in which Britney thought her bodyguard was leaving the cash. Brit later went back to rectify the situation, and left a massive tip in doing so.
If there’s a lesson to be learned from this whole mess, minions, it’s to pay the bill or risk your chain food habits being revealed. XOXO
