Waffle House in Atlanta adds 20% 'property management surcharge'
An Atlanta Waffle House outpost is charging its customers an extra 20 percent — on everything — to help pay for a security guard. The restaurant tells Fox Atlanta that it instituted the surcharge as a result of crime in its Five Points neighborhood. Even though there's a police precinct down the street, Waffle House hired the off-duty police officer to work from 4 p.m. to 7 a.m. daily after the nearby clubs started bringing in a lot of drunken, fighting people.
Waffle House officially calls the fee a "property management surcharge" and signs are posted throughout the restaurant to warn customers. Reaction is pretty mixed, but one waitress points out that this surcharge has resulted in lower tips.

5. 4 pm to 7 am?
That's a 15 hour shift for an off duty cop that also works 8 hours on his real job? He never sleeps?
I just wouldn't go there anymore. I wouldn't have gone there in the first place actually.
