The year was 1941 when a young man and his friends stopped to have a meal at Lamb’s Grill.
The boys finished their dinner but then pulled the old “dine and dash,” when they couldn’t afford the goodies.
However, that day stayed with the unnamed man. In fact, it bothered him so much that on April 1st,, he made things right.
“This woman walks in the front door, and she looks like she’s on a mission,” Jasmine Back told KSL.com.
The woman, who turned out to be the man’s daughter, blurted out her dad had committed a crime there in 1941.
“And I think, 'What's going to happen next?' Next, she says, '(He) dined and dashed here in 1941," the woman finished.
The woman went on to say the total owed was $1, but she handed them a $5 bill and an apology.
That’s not all. She said her father was still alive but “was actually so embarrassed about it that he waited in the car."
The current owner of the business is Francis Liong. He accepted the fiver with a plan in mind.
“The five dollars don’t belong to me’” he began.
“It belongs to the previous owners, back then. So I need to pay it back,” Liong continued.
Then he offered an olive branch.
“I’d like to tell him to please come back and eat at Lamb’s Grill, but don’t dash out,” he smiled.
