A Little Lunch at Nello's....

Russian billionaire Abramovich drops $50k for a nice lunch.

The Ward Boss writes, "Look, I had the Milanese, and the water. I'm not submitting receipts to be reimbursed for anything else...."

Good. I am not sure that the $7k+ "tip" would have made it through Duke's accounting office.

Now, you are thinking, "3 bottle of wine? For $1,500? WOW!" But wait, check again, you missed a zero....Plus, tax is more than $3,200, and the tip is more than $7,300. Nice tip...

I have had several bottles of Petrus!
It is amazing.
But, an hour later I went to the bathroom, and poof, thousands of dollars of wine got flushed!!
Hate when that happens..............

This is just that receipt generator that popped up a while back, right? http://consumerist.com/2009/10/expense-a-steak-receipt-generator-makes-fraud-easy.html

Ah, now THAT is a useful comment. I bet you are right. Well done, and thanks for pointing out the hoax.

Even if it's not a fake, it's not really that surprising. He's basically spend a LOT of money on expensive wine and taxes. The rest of it is a check that anyone (including me) could have run up on any normal day.

Again, folks: If you are looking for interesting, surprising, etc., you are just in the wrong place.

*I* thought the tip was cool. I have seen expensive wine. I have never seen a tip that big.

So, now we have (a) boring, (b) mundane, and (c) fake. This was apparently not a very good post. I promise to give you all DOUBLE your money back.

And, if you want to say that I wasted 30 seconds of your life....well, you will NEVER get that back.

Philistine! You don't order LaTache or Petrus with rigatoni and seafood spagheti unless you are trying to impress someone. The wines overwhelm those dishes...
