Plenty of folks use social media to rant. In fact, for people in the food service industry, venting about the job is par for the course.
Remember the Applebee's waitress who posted a receipt on Reddit from a pastor who wrote, "I give God 10%. Why should I give you 18?" (The action led to the firing of the waitress.)
Now it's being used to catch folks who try to filch on the bill from dinner.
Brewer's Cabinet, a Reno, Nev., restaurant posted on Facebook after a customer ran out on his $100 tab.
"If you know, or see, this dude, please call RENO POLICE DEPT at 334-2121 immediately," the post reads, "and then remind him that his tab at The Brewer's Cabinet is still waiting to be paid.... and his tab at Campo.... and his tab at Imperial.... and his tab at Chapel... and his tab at many other fine establishments."
The customer, Saul Zelaznog of Reno, was arrested shortly after the post, on what the Associated Press reports is a probation violation.
"Just trying to look out for all the other business owners," Chris Kahl, a co-owner of the Brewer's Cabinet, told the Reno Gazette-Journal. "$100, that's a lot of money to lose."
It also serves as a warning to other dine-and-dash planners. Someone on social media is always watching.
