Cashiers aren't a brainy bunch
Earned 1 free burger, got under-charged moisturizer and over-charged on 2 bags of supreme cheeze Doritos'
Paid the cafeteria lady $5 for a burger which cost $3.50,
However, she punched $10 on the till and I got back $6.50 in change. Power.
Hence, 1 free burger & $1.50 in addition for me queuing up for the burger???
Bought a bottle of moisturizer, a supposing bonus pack, free 250ml, sale price at $12.95. Initially wanted to pay using efthpos [equivalent of NETS in SG], she told me “sorry, you have to buy a minimum of $10”
Now wait a minute…I thought that the moisturizer was $12.95? Cause I didn’t have enough cash, borrowed money from a friend, paid and left. Hence, I was under-charged $7. which is = to increase in savings by $7.
At the supermarket, bought 2 packs of nachos, paid and left the place. [Should have checked the receipt, but I didn’t]. Reach home and realized I kena charged for additional 2 MORE packs of nachos. Damn duh. Hence, I was over-charged $5, now which is = to decrease in savings by $7.
Wasted. Should have saved $7, instead end up save $2 only. Blardy hell.
Anyway, will be hoping to be served by many more “reckless” cashiers. But this time, I will check my receipt. Can under-charge but not over-charge.
Moral of the story,
Cashiers here can’t multi-task for nuts. Get distracted and they end up making boo boos.
By the way, the tandoori chicken burger tasted weird [beet-root coloured sauce??], wacked it down anyway. It’s free after all, isn’t it?
But I agree, can under-charge but cannot over-charge. Haha!
What are you studying over there btw?
