I love fish and seafood….
…But I guarantee you I would never pay $60 for a filet of red snapper.
This register receipt was from June 4. I discovered it on July 6 when I finally got around to entering it in our Quicken program. I left for the store immediately, showed the manager their error, and got my money back.
Then I bought an ice cream to celebrate.
Remember, if you notice an error, speak up! Don’t be obnoxious, don’t abuse any store policies. Be polite and know your rights. You’ll be pleasantly surprised how often the store takes care of the problem… especially if you’re a regular customer.
(And with 4 growing boys, you can be sure that these folks see me at least twice a week and know me by name!)
****Updated to add: Yes, I do regularly check my receipt and/or a red flag would have gone up at the cost. However, this receipt was 4 feet long when it was finally done. I had been shopping for a party. The total bill was almost $400, and that was after they already took off $250 worth of club-card savings and coupons. (Who is going to notice an extra $60 in all of that…?)
