This is a case of the ultimate guilty conscience -- or stomach.
Flash back to 1996, as a customer walks out of the Seaview Palace Tandoori in Swansea, a coastal city in Wales, without paying for his £10 late-night curry meal -- about a $17 bill, for those stateside.
Now, nearly 13 years later, the Daily Telegraph
reports the customer is finally footing the unpaid tab plus some.
The police received an anonymous apology in March from the dine-and-dash customer, along with £60 (approximately $100) cash to be passed on to the Seaview Palace Tandoori restaurant owner.
It seems the customer finally wanted to settle his debt, with extra money added to take inflation into account.
Little did the customer know, the restaurant had since been torn down. The police spent the last five months tracking down former Seaview Palace Tandoori owner, 48-year-old Samsul Bari.
