Man leaves $1,000 tip, returns next day to get it back

It seemed too good to be true for Skye Seumptewa when she opened the ticket book left by her customer and more than $1,000 was in there. She knew something was up, and that suspicion was confirmed when her former customer returned the next day to get his money back.

KUSA reported the man was eating at Thailicious, an Edgewater, Colorado, restaurant, on Monday night and sat at the bar, ordering a few glasses of wine with a meal before paying for his check. According to Seumptewa, he settled the bill and left, which is when she noticed the bounty of bills left inside.

"We thought he was just some super-loaded dude who wanted to make our night,” she told KUSA. 

Bee Anantatho, one of the restaurant's owners, said he and the workers were excited, but also a little skeptical. "(The server) was so excited about it. He said he's heard of the stories like this, but not with this much money. Like $400. This was something huge. I said maybe we should wait because that's too much money. Let's wait to see if he comes back or not."

The customer returned and said he was a little drunk when he left the original tip. "He came in and asked for the money back," Anantatho added. "He thought he lost it. He said he was a little drunk, and I think he believed that he counted 20 bills of money so I think that he believed that it was all singles."

The man left them with a $40 tip instead, the Denver Post reported.

Anantatho, who co-owns the restaurant with his wife, Surachai Surabotsopon, said they decided to give the money back for karma.

"Many people have said we have a right to keep the money, since it was already in the checkbook," he said. "I believe in karma, so if it's not ours, then we should give it back. He's still welcome."

British restaurant owner gets 6 years for killing man with curry

An owner of an Indian restaurant in North Yorkshire, England, was sentenced to six years in prison after he served a curry dish containing peanuts to a customer with an allergy, resulting in his death.

Mohammaed Zaman was sentenced Monday after being found guilty of manslaughter by gross negligence among other food-safety offenses, The New York Times reported. The incident happened in January 2014 when Paul Wilson, 38, ordered chicken tikka masala from Zaman’s restaurant, Indian Garden, and specified he couldn’t have any nuts in his order.

Wilson had visited the restaurant previously and was given a container with "no nuts" written on top of it, the Times added.

He was found by a roommate dead after going into anaphylactic shock, prosecutors said.

According to authorities, Zaman cut corners by replacing almond powder in his recipes with a cheaper mix of groundnuts and hired undocumented workers to put together his curry dishes. There was an incident with another customer with a nut allergy three weeks before Wilson’s death.

"Time and again he ignored the danger and did not protect his customers," Richard Wright, told a jury at Teesside Crown Court, according to the Times.

Zaman had about $434,000 in debt, which led to his cutting corners, the Times reported. He also had a tendency to not be at the restaurant, allowing his employees to run the operations, and was not there when the curry was served to Wilson.

"Paul Wilson was in the prime of his life," Judge Simon Bourne-Arton told Zaman, according to the Yorkshire Post. "He, like you, worked in the catering trade. He, unlike you, was a careful man."

Joe's Crab Shack to end no-tipping policy

New York mayor, officials say they won't go to Chick-fil-A

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and other city officials are speaking out against Chick fil-A.

>> Read more trending stories  

The suggestion comes as the chicken chain announced plans to open a restaurant in Queens Center Mall, the fourth location in the city. 

"We look forward to opening our first restaurant in Queens and serving all of our customers delicious food in an environment of genuine hospitality," a Chick-fil-A spokesperson said.

But de Blasio says Chick fil-A supports groups that promote discrimination against gay people.

"What the ownership of Chick-fil-A has said is wrong," de Blasio said. "I’m certainly not going to patronize them, and I wouldn’t urge any other New Yorker to patronize them. But they do have a legal right."

"Chick-fil-A is anti-LGBT," councilman Danny Dromm said in a statement. "This group imparts a strong anti-LGBT message by forcing their employees and volunteers to adhere to a policy that prohibits same-sex love. It is outrageous that Chick-fil-A is quietly spreading its message of hate by funding these types of organizations."

In 2012, Chick-fil-A gained attention when it came to light that the company had donated millions of dollars to organizations that fight same-sex marriage. 

The restaurant chain, which is closed on Sundays, is known for heralding Christian beliefs.

"As it relates to society in general, I think we are inviting God’s judgment on our nation when we shake our fist at him and say, ‘We know better than you as to what constitutes a marriage,'" Dan T. Cathy, the company’s president and chief operating officer, said in an interview.

But a Chick-fil-A spokesperson said that the company employees thousands of people who represent varied backgrounds and beliefs and that the business' main focus is on satisfactory service and food. 

"The Chick-fil-A culture and service tradition in our restaurants is to treat every person with honor, dignity and respect -- regardless of their beliefs, race, creed, sexual orientation or gender," the spokesperson said. 

Chicken fingers: KFC releases edible nail polish

It's a common joke to say that an unfamiliar food tastes like chicken. But now a new nail polish literally tastes like chicken.

>> Read more trending stories  

KFC recently introduced an edible nail polish to its Hong Kong market.

The product, created by marketing firm Ogilvy & Mather and food technologists from McCormick, comes in two flavors -- Original and Hot & Spicy. Original is a gold beige color and Hot & Spicy is a shade of orange red.

According to KFC, the nail polish is applied like regular nail polish but is "sourced from natural ingredients" and can be safely licked. In fact, the company says the nail polish is "finger lickin' good."

<iframe width="390" height="219" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/eZMtaHjTDS4" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

"Yes, it is actually a real thing," said Anna Mugglestone, marketing and communications director for Ogilvy & Mather. "I tried it myself in the office when they were doing testing. It tastes like chicken. It’s crazy. I don’t know how they do it."

"The recipe for our edible nail polish is unique and was specifically designed to hold the flavor, but to also dry with a glossy coat similar to normal nail polish," Ogilvy creative director John Kay told Adweek. "This campaign is designed to be intriguing and fun (and) to increase excitement around the KFC brand in Hong Kong."

Mugglestone said the nail polish is a way "to remind the younger generation (of ) the great taste and good times the brand stands for."

“(The Original color) is actually pretty cute for spring if, you know, it didn’t taste like fried chicken,” said one writer at Glamour magazine.

KFC is running an ad campaign in Hong Kong to ask customers which flavor should be mass produced.

This is for real. Finger lickin' good KFC nail polish. They teamed with McCormick spices to create their secret 11 herbs and spices into a "completely edible" nail polish. You let it dry and can lick on it over and over. Original recipe or hot & spicy.... Yay or nay? . #kfcnailpolish #fitgirlsguide #28dayjumpstart #makeyourownmagic #beyourownfitgirl #fitsisters A photo posted by @fitgirl.swissmiss on May 5, 2016 at 6:54am PDT <script async defer src="//platform.instagram.com/en_US/embeds.js"></script>

Starbucks being sued for too much ice in drinks

A lawsuit filed against Starbucks claims there's too much ice in its cold drinks.

>> Read more trending stories  

Stacy Pincus of Chicago filed the $5 million lawsuit on Wednesday, with claims that the coffee giant falsely advertises how much liquid is in its cold beverages.

“Starbucks’ cold drinks are underfilled to make more money and higher profits, to the detriment of consumers who are misled by Starbucks’ intentionally misleading advertising practices,” the lawsuit says. "(The company) is advertising the size of its cold drink cups on its menu, rather than the amount of fluid a customer will receive when they purchase a cold drink -- and deceiving its customers in the process."

It continues: "The word beverage is defined as a drinkable liquid. Ice is not a beverage by definition."

Pincus says Starbucks advertises its cold drinks by fluid ounce but that the numbers are only accurate after ice is added to the drink.

According to the lawsuit, a venti-sized cold drink is advertised as having 24 fluid ounces but only includes 14 ounces of the actual liquid. The rest, the suit says, is ice, sometimes leaving customers with only half the amount of drink they expected upon their purchase.

But Starbucks says the claims are "without merit."

"Our customers understand and expect that ice is an essential component of any 'iced' beverage. If a customer is not satisfied with their beverage preparation, we will gladly remake it," said Jamie Riley, a spokesperson for Starbucks. 

The lawsuit is seeking monetary damages on behalf of everyone who has purchased an iced drink from Starbucks since 2006, Vox reported.

A lawsuit filed in March alleged Starbucks underfills its hot lattes by "approximately 25 percent."
