What's up? Been lurking for a while and decided to sign up and post.

So something has been bugging me for a while now . Here's what happened School was out and I was heading home, I was hungry so I stopped in at this restaurant and ordered a sandwitch and then went off to eat it in a corner after finishing it I realized I had not paid for it!

Yeah evidently they were super busy and distracted because there was this manager/investor type looking around everywhere and talking to them. So I was just about to go up to the counter and say I hadn't paid but then I realized if I did that the owner guy might get mad at the employees. So I just left. What should I have done do you think?
