When I go out to eat, I try to be an understanding patron. I have done my time waitressing, so I know sometimes things just go wrong and there’s nothing the waitress can do about it. The kitchen gets backed up. Another server takes the food that was supposed to go to your table. 10 tables come in at once, and things get hectic. Sometimes these things just can’t be helped. But one thing that can? Waiting endlessly for the check when you’ve finished your dinner, and just want to get the heck out of there.
Cover is a new app that lets you pay your bill using your phone with participating restaurants so that when you finish you can just get up and leave, no waiting involved. You just let your server know that’s how you’ll be paying, and the app displays your charges, allows you to enter tips and leave when you please. You can even split the check with other Cover users. Can’t wait to try it out!
