Careful how you order: Man mistakenly orders $3,750 wine thinking it was $37.50

An occasional wine-drinker asked a waitress to recommend a decent wine for him and his guests at a meeting. She recommended one and said it cost "thirty seven fifty". Thinking she meant $37.50, Joe Lentini ordered the wine and was given a huge bill $4,700.61, including tax.

It was bottle of the vintage wine, Screaming Eagle, Oakville 2011.
‘I asked the waitress if she could recommend something decent because I don't have experience with wine. She pointed to a bottle on the menu. I didn’t have my glasses. I asked how much and she said, “Thirty-seven fifty.” Joe said
When the dinner was over and the waitress brought the bill, Joe, who hadn't paid much attention to the wine, sat up...



"We were shocked. We couldn't believe it. The total bill was $4,700.61, including tax. The bottle of wine cost $3,750. I thought the wine was $37.50," Lentini said.

Lentini said he called the waitress over and said there was a problem. He said he explained that he never would have ordered such expensive wine, and repeated that when he asked about the price, the waitress said "thirty-seven fifty," not "three-thousand, seven-hundred-and-fifty."

The waitress disagreed, and a manager was called over. He offered to give separate bills, so the dinner bill, which wasn't being disputed, could be paid.

Next, Lentini said he was told the best price the restaurant could offer was $2,200.

Lentini said he couldn't afford that, but to be able to leave, he and two other diners agreed to split the $2,200 bill.

Na oyibo and short cut! Thirty seven fifty is not 3, 750, twenty hundred hours is not 12am!

Americans are the dumbest and most stupid people on earth , a guest asks u recommend a bottle of wine , it's the 3,750 wine u would choose ??? How dumb can u be? And not even spell out d amount correctly. Very dumb!

Yes o, happened to someone in my office who erroneously purchased 40,000 Naira credit online instead of 4000 Naira. That extra zero could mean a WHOLE LOT. I always double check now.....

Bros me, original biz man; you've calculated it in naira sharp sharp.
Seriously, this has happened to me before. The only difference was that there was a mistake with the pricetag and not something I've gulped down, the particular item had to be deducted immediately.. Ejighi akpata atufuo aba ogaranya!

Americans for you. Instead of them to say it out in full. I can understand saying "thirty five hundred: 3500" but thirty seven fifty is just careless of her.
