A generous birthday discount on offer at a Montana restaurant was taken full advantage of by a 109-year-old woman who wound up getting money back in her pocket after celebrating her birthday last month, KULR reported.
The Montana Club in Missoula runs a birthday promotion for its customers that comps a percentage off from meals based upon their age.
A 63-year-old will get a 63 percent discount, a 100-year-old will receive a 100 percent discount — but what happens when a diner is older than a centenarian?
Helen Self of western Montana has that one all figured.
"Once she turned 101 she informed me that I had to come in and pay her for her meal," said owner of the Montana Club, Nick Alonzo.
The 109-year-old is Montana's oldest living person, ABC News noted.
For the last decade she has been going to The Montana Club to celebrate her birthday and has only had to pay for one meal, in 2008.
This year, when the bill arrived during a dinner party to celebrate Self's 109th birthday with friends and family, she received 100 percent off her meal as well as the 9 percent back in cash from Alonzo in person.
The restaurant owner shares a special bond with Self, and said he would not miss her birthday.
"I'm always there," he said, according to The Washington Post. "Somebody has to pay her."
Last year when Alonzo presented Self with the check, he suggested she use the money to play the slot machines at the back of the restaurant.
"Nick Alonzo, I am not leaving my money here, I'm taking it home," Self quipped back.
This year he made the same suggestion, to which Self replied "If I could get there, I would."
