This past Sunday some friends and I went to brunch. It is my new favorite thing to do. I have never done brunch in Greenville, just in ATL, but was so glad I did. I had an awesome omlette, toast, and fresh fruit. We went to a cute little place called Mary's Cottage down at Falls Park. It was my first time there, and I will definitely go back! We sat outside our table overlooked a beautiful garden and had a great view of the suspension bridge. I love the bridge. When you stand on it and people walk by you can feel the bridge sway. It is kind of creepy, but cool. I love the park and am always mad at myself that I don't make it down there more often. That will be my goal this spring.
Sometimes I wonder if because I am a teacher I look for things the normal person wouldn't. This is a cute little restaurant and I don't know how up with the times they are because they still do their bills by hand. (What restaurant does bills by hand anymore?!?) Back to the story...when I got my bill I looked it over and quickly realized that it was either 1)a really expensive omelet or 2)was wrong. My bill was for $22.70. I glanced down and saw that the waitress has carried her 1 to the wrong column. It should have been $12.70. I quietly called her over and told her I think she added it up incorrectly. She didn't understand. I immediately fell into teacher mode and showed her by doing the math problem next to hers. She was a little embarrassed and quickly fixed it. She brought me back my correct change. I was a little disappointed I wanted her to bring back the original bill so I could show my students how important math is in the real world, but I'm pretty sure she threw it away. So just remember check your work!
