Floating a ticket is a scam often employed by servers in restaurants. It is usually accomplished by ringing in one generic ticket (e.g. a water and salad bar) and handing the same check to multiple persons. This is of course impossible to use with credit cards as an authorization is required. Obviously, floating a ticket constitutes theft and could result in prosecution. So don't do it.
Server 1: I've got to pay my rent in three days and I'm a buck fifty behind.
Server 2: Float a couple of salad bars. That shouldn't be a problem.
Server 1: Isn't floating a ticket illegal?
Server 2: Only if you get caught.
