A fast growing restaurant called Burger&Lobster shamed a family of four on Facebook for ‘forgetting’ to pay the bill. The question should then come up; “How does one forget to pay the restaurant bill?” The obvious answer to that is they didn’t, more than likely they dined and dashed. As a retaliation, the restaurant made a post on Facebook saying: “‘To this family that walked out tonight without paying their bill, we are sure this was just a ‘mistake’ and you completely forgot, so out of the goodness of your heart please call the restaurant tomorrow to pay the bill'” (www.grubstreet.com). Wow, talk about a guilt trip.
Of course, Facebook had deleted the post, which comes as no surprise to Bruce Levenson. To add insult to injury, a majority of the comments themselves shamed the family, while others were trolls.
