The ordeal
The Journalist landed at Malmaison Hotel for a drink after he has seen off his friend at the train station. It was Sunday night when lousy luck made him ask for something British, and he was served Scottish beer. When he received the bill, he was without glasses, so he considered it a deception of his eyes. Hearing about the bill, he began to laugh. The price had been 10000 times more than a regular pint.
He did not expect that a simple glass of beer will cost him so much. It was a matter of real surprise for him, but he had been charged.
Refund
After he made it clear to hotel management, they checked the bill and issued him a refund immediately. Now he was satisfied and returned. He was that the money was back to his account and he took it a routine clerical mistake. He may have thanked God and his luck that he had realized the matter soon and avoid a huge loss. But it did not end here.
Still further anxiety
After a few days after this happening, he received a call from his wife. She told him that almost $67000 had been deducted from the bank account and the money is gone. Now it was another wonder for him. Soon he contacted the bank and the hotel. The bank informed him that they had not received the refund and it could take ten days for the processing of the refund amount.

Hotel regrets
Now Lalor is anxiously waiting for this refund and is still in stress. He told CNN that he could buy a new car with the amount with the money he paid for a pint of Scottish beer. As a journalist, he does not have much wealth to pay for such follies.
The hotel has apologized for this blunder and is working to process the refund to alleviate the worries f journalist. They have assured to resolve this issue.

The hotel chain assured that they are fair in dealing and it was a mistake which was soon rectified. The hotel is moderate in bar prices. They expected another drink by the Journalist and hoped that he would be invited soon. This time he will surely get a discount.
