    If you are under charged in a shop, do you question it so you pay more (the correct amount) or do you just keep quiet?

    I went to matalan today, had to go in OHs van as the car has a flat. So got there, put my £1 in the trolley to get one, and they're all rusted together, tried a few trolleys and couldn't get any, so had to go in holding Riley, (as the pram was in the car, not the van)

    So I'm struggling round trying to get a present for my nana with out Riley smashing anything, and really struggling, I picked an orchid in a pretty vase (artificial) which was £8, picked a card and a gift bag and let Riley walk to the till as I was struggling to juggle them all, I put the card and the flower in the bag, put them on the till, said there's also a card in there so she wouldn't miss it. Said I was very dissapointed about the condition of the trolled outside as I've now had to struggle round the shop at 38 weeks pregnant and a wriggling toddler! She said oh sorry about that we're always getting complaints :)dohh:) that's £3.25 then, I stuck my card in, and when it actually popped in on the screen £3.25, I then said, £3.25, are you sure? To which she responded, yeh, must have been priced wrong..
    So I entered my pin and off I toddled.. Got home and looked at the receipt and she hasn't scanned the flower/vase :dohh:

    I'm not very honest. I have been undercharged a few times; like in a restaurant they will only put 2 Cokes on the bill when perhaps we had 4. In a shop I've rarely been undercharged, but if I am, and I notice, I won't mention it. I think though if it was something obvious, I probably would mention it, but for something little I don't think I would bother.

    If I find money on the floor, I will hand it in to the till.

    I found £1 on a seat I sat on yesterday, and we are so broke I could really have done with that £1; we barely have money to eat right now. But I said to the rest of the people I was with "look what I found on my seat; we can put it towards the bill". I didn't directly benefit; I still paid for my drink.

    If I buy something without a price tag on it, and they ask me how much it was, I tell them the truth (if I remember the price).

    we went to asda a few weeks back and got some tins and a hammer. She scanned the hammer but not the price tag, but the sticky tag on the hammer so the price never registered. So we got a £4 hammer for free :blush: never realised til we were driving hime and I wondered why the shop was so cheap :haha:

I gave you a ten..No you gave me a twenty...I was like oh..Still not convinced I'd given him 20 but ah well lol.

    I'm honest. Last time we were undercharged at a restaurant, the waitress forgot to charge us for a pop. I told her, Oh, you forgot to charge us for our drink, but she just told us not to worry about it :)

    I don't say anything unless it's a small independent shop.

    Its depends where I was, if it was tesco, Asda or a big chain like that then I would take it and run, but if it was a small local shop then I would say :)

    Yep i'm honest!

    I had an order go missing from NEXT not too long ago so they had to resend it, the original order came and i sent it back!
    Another order from NEXT again went missing this week, £100 worth of stuff too. I was on the phone getting them to reorder it and the lady got confused and added 6 pairs of children's boots, rather than 3, so i corrected her. She couldn't believe i was so honest, but i hate doing things like that. I was just happy with getting what i ordered the first time tbh.
     
  14. nope, not honest with regards to things like that. :blush:

    I've been undercharged or given too much change a few times and I always tell them straight away without even thinking about it - and then I get outside and think "oooh me and my big mouth I could have done with that!" So maybe I'm too honest for my own good, lol. xxx

    I'm usually in a world of my own and don't notice. I've been undercharged and overcharged loads of times and not realised til we got home and I was just never bothered to go back. If i'm at the counter and the price I'm quoted really doesn't seem right I will say something like ask has everything been scanned right so I suppose I am honest when I pay attention! :)

    This happened to me a few weeks ago in Superdrug. I was undercharged by £10. She must not have scanned one of the items correctly. I kept quiet. Opps!

    I'm not very honest with things like this, but then again most of the time I don't realise until I get home and then theres no chance of me going back :dohh:
