Cash Only, No Credit

The Apple Pan in Westwood (LA) has served great apple pie and burgers for 50 years or so. Cash only, no plastic. My friend David Krygier recently asked a waiter of many years service if ever a customer was unable to come up with cash to pay the check.

"Yes, it happens often--about once a day, in fact," the waiter replied.

"How often do you get stiffed?" asked David.

"It's never happened," came the answer.

Easy enough for somebody to walk off without paying, but it's never happened in the waiter's many years there. Maybe people are more honest that we give them credit for.
