Woman sees red over insult in bill

A woman in Beijing is furious after being given a restaurant bill that had the words "the one who paid the bill is a shameless woman" on it.

The incident stemmed from a quarrel that the woman, known only as Cao, had had with workers at the restaurant where she had a meal on Feb 8, Kwong Wah Yit Poh reported.

Cao had reportedly found fault over the restaurant's failure to issue her a receipt after her meal.

The workers then went to another restaurant nearby to print out the receipt.

She felt humiliated when she got the receipt and read the insulting note.

The restaurant apologised to Cao and claimed it was "a system error". Both parties have yet to resolve the matter.
