(Newser) – Today's entry in the better-late-than-never category: An octogenarian has offered a mea culpa to a Salt Lake City restaurant that he wronged ... in 1941, at age 10. It seems the unnamed man dined-and-dashed with a friend, and has felt guilty over the unpaid-for meal ever since, so much so that he sent his daughter into Lamb's Grill to make amends. A server tells KSL, "He was actually so embarrassed about it that he waited in the car while she did the deed." The deed, in this case, was an apology and a $5 bill, which happens to be $4 more than the cost of the meal. The restaurant's current owner intends to hand the $5 over to the previous owners.
