Let's Read Between The Lines

When I read this story a few things jumped out at me as there is background not in the story.

I do not frequent clubs now, but have seen the inside of many over the years. The patron shared with the server she was going to be there a while and desired to pay cash. It is not unusual to ask for a card if a significant tab is going to be run up. We do not know if this establishment has had "walkouts" and this is just a protection. My gut tells me this patron probably had an attitude and desired to make an issue out of the whole scenario. Then to top it off she plays the race card.

I am so tired of this race card crap.

Who made you the arbiter of morality? You are not Government but you sure are acting like North Korea.

One can only hope they have a lot of "walkouts" for now on.  IF she had the cash then why did she not pay for the drinks.  Where I come from you only run a tab if you have a CC, if not it's cash on the line.  Or it can be charged to your Hotel bill, as they have your CC number from checking in.

Exactly. This is nothing but a sound business practice.
