A man in Florida bellied up to the bar for a beer at The Clevelander. But when he handed over his card, his credit was no good. Turns out, the card he was attempting to use belonged to the very man serving him his drink.

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. A guy walks into a bar in Miami Beach. He orders a drink, puts a credit card down and things start going wrong. The bartender began to suspect the card did not belong to the customer. His first clue was that the card had the bartender's name. Police say the customer had stolen it from the bartender's car. The man claims he found it on the ground. Either way, put an extra tip on there, bartender. Go get yourself something really nice. You're listening to MORNING EDITION.
