What do you do in this situation?

You're at Lucky Chances, and a big tournament has just started. You manage to find service and order breakfast, which shows up fairly quickly given the current level of chaos in the room.

The bill is eight dollars and change. You hand her a ten dollar bill plus a five dollar food comp just as you get dealt a hand. You hear her say, "Thank you very much", and walk away.

When the hand is over you realize that she's just interpreted your actions as giving her a tip of about 80% of the bill, which was not what you intended.

What do you do?
