Notre Dame tips a caterer $29,000, wants money back

    My own opinion: if the bank makes an error in your favor, tough, pay it back or don't spend it. If the IRS screws up and sends you too big a refund, well, you know who's going to win that one. But if a private business (Notre Dame in this case) overtips, tough luck. Take it out of Charlie Weis' meal allowance.

    And by the way, she got tipped 29,000 and Notre Dame claimed it should have been 29 and change. They're either very, very cheap or she was catering Charlie's mid-morning snack.

    The school wants that money for the Charle Weis buyout fund.

    Yeah, I'm inclined to go with ND on this one. She tried so hard to point out their error that as little as a month later, she had spent the entire $29,000? Ahem. She was car shopping the day she got the check.

    Spending it immediately is the problem. Hang onto it and then make the institution grovel to get it back. They might win, but at least you can pay it back and get your 15 minutes.

    Throw it in the bank, and the interest alone will be about the same as the tip you were supposed to receive.

    If the person at McDonald's accidently gives you an extra dollar, it's your lucky day. If you thought you were going to get away with an accidental $29,200 that fell on your lap, you're delusional.
