Man accidentally pays Rs 66,000 for burger after night out — he wasn’t drinking

Toby Wilson, who accidentally spent Rs 66,000 on a burger and chips, say he's still not gotten refund over a month later.

Little compares to the horror of waking up the morning the night before and having to check your bank balance but Toby Wilson of Manchester, England didn’t even have to drink to mess up.

After a night out with his friends in York, he woke up to find he had spent £666.50 (little over Rs 66,000) on a burger, according to Ladbible.

On his way home, Wilson stopped at the Efe's Kebab Kitchen food truck for a moderately-priced burger and chips — but ended up having the most expensive meal of his life.

It wasn’t until a few days later that the Manchester resident noticed something about his account balance felt off — but he was already back home by then.

"I am a non-drinker. Maybe it would be different if someone was drunk and just stumbled into to get a kebab and got it all wrong. But that’s very much not the case," Toby told the publication.

Now, over a month later, the possibility of getting a refund still seems far-fetched as Toby claims he’s being stonewalled by the company’s human resources manager Ahmed Abdullah, who insists that the customer talk to the business’ bank.

“Being a large conglomerate, they have rules to follow and things like that," he said, continuing: "I explained the story to them [his bank], and they essentially need him [Ahmed] to say 'Yes, it’s happened.'”

"I thought it would be quickly sorted out and the banks would go, 'Yep, it’s an error.”

“But the bank is very slow at doing things.”

The bank reportedly requires him to produce a receipt of the transaction but, as these things go, he’s not in possession of any.

Toby, who has worked in hospitality, believes Efe's Kebab Kitchen would be able to prove the Rs 66,000 payment if they just looked into their account.
