The good person in me always stops them and gets correct change, then I regret it. What does that make me ethically?
@Welcommatt, the chosen one
@Welcommatt, it's a good thing because otherwise the cashier could get in big trouble
@Welcommatt, It makes you a worthless Welcome mat that everyone walks over 😉 !
I got an extra penny once.
@Hoover CAT, I'm gonna punch a puppy of you tell me you didn't give the penny back, you selfish bastard.
@SWAT, nooo, punch a kitten
True story: one time I went to McDonald's just to break a $100 bill so I got 2 apple pies for $1.10. I gave her the $100 and a dime so I should've gotten $99 back right? The cashier had to go get the manager so she could give out that much change and the manager chewed me out for using the dime instead of just paying with the $100 bill. She ended up giving me $109 back instead of $99. So long story short, I got 2 apple pies and $10 from McDonald's. I would've given it back but she was a complete ass to me so I kept it. Sorry for the long post.
@BostonCelticsBoi, I can't believe how many people can't count when you give them that extra change, and then they're rude about it. I made your job easier by eliminating change, just subtract the dollars!
@La Villa Strangiato, exactly
@BostonCelticsBoi, you know the ten dollars had to be paid by the cashier when she had her till counted, don't you? The real dick here is you. Who carries hundreds and goes to McDonald's for $99 in change?
@abecedarian, well the manager went to the safe to grab the change because the cashier didn't have it in her drawer so I think the $10 would fall on the manager. To answer your second question, I had a $100 bill and wanted it broken and McDonald's was the closest place to do that.
@BostonCelticsBoi, my question is why carry $100 in the first place?
@BostonCelticsBoi, I had gotten a dollar extra back at McDonald's and told them and then while I was eating the manager came to me and gave me 4 free cookies for being honest
@Earthman , I like to buy things that you can't get with a card
As a cashier, I make sure to give other cashiers back the extra because they either get into trouble or they have to pay the shortages. One time I got an extra $220 from the bank and didn't realize it until I got home. I drove back and made sure that I gave her the money, so that no one else would know that she made that mistake.
@r3dn3ckf1sh3r, you're a good person. I'm proud of you.
@r3dn3ckf1sh3r, how does that even happen? At banks the machines are supposed to dispense the correct amount of money
@Earthman , at my Bank of America they just have a cash register and they have a machine to double count the cash. The teller put the right amount in the computer but must've forgot the amount after. Like she put it through the counter and counted it back to me. When I was there I figured that I asked for that much. Found out otherwise after
Donate it. There's always those little charities there. Just drop the extra change in the donation box.
Ha. It's funny cause Sam had no soul for a while.
Give it back, you turd muffin! Cashiers get in trouble when they do that! An extra $3 isn't worth making someone lose their job!
I keep the change. Not my fault that they can't count.
@DeadXOnix, dude, they could get fired for an honest mistake.
@SWAT, i give it back if its over $3 extra, i had someone give me an extra $20 before and i gave that back, but an extra dollar wont really hurt anyone.
One time I was buying a plastic fork for 5 cents and I paid a dime, but the lady gave me back a quarter
I always give it back if they've been nice to me. Sometimes these real grumpy people help you, and they deserve to pay for their ignorance ^^
Why not both?
One time, a cashier gave me way too much change when I went though a drive thru. So, I park and went inside with my receipt, explained what happened and gave the money back. Before I left a manager thanked me for my honesty because the cashier would have been fired for giving too much change.
I was in a coffee shop and the young woman gave me change for ten pounds but I'd only given her five pounds. I corrected her because it would've either come out of her wages or she'd be accused of stealing.
I went to Cumberland farms once. I bought a monster. I gave the guy three dollars and fifty cents. He gave me back 7 dollars.
