MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — A restaurant's policy to give customers a percentage off their bill on their birthday actually became a 7-cent refund for man who turned 101.

Joseph Nelson, who celebrated a birthday breakfast at the Belmont Hall and Restaurant in Manchester on Monday, told WMUR-TV (http://bit.ly/1M3hD7m) he never thought he'd live this long.

The restaurant's policy is that customers get a percentage taken off the bill on their birthday based on their age. At 101 years old, the restaurant owed Nelson money.

Nelson ate scrambled eggs and ham, topped off with a piece of chocolate cake.
