Ripped Off at the Checkout

Filed under: General,Idiots — Cory @ 9:58 pm

Recently I have been paying more attention to how much money I spend at restaurants, coffee shops, and the like. Since I have been trying to cut back on my expenses, I have been putting more thought into what I buy, and what the total amount should be. What I have found is a little scary, and has made me pay even more attention to my receipts.

I’ve been keeping an eye on these things for about a month now, and it seems that about 1-2 times per week I catch a cash register attendant overcharging me. The first time or two it happened I thought it was just a simple mistake. But then it kept happening, and now I notice it a lot. Whenever I am suspicious I ask how much each item costs, and typically the attendant seems to know right away that there was a problem, act(?) dumb, and say something like “oh, I must have touched an extra key.”

I wonder how much I have been overcharged for in the past?
