What If Bank Teller Handed You Shorted Amount Of Money

I don't usually count in the front of teller everytime I receive the money from them. Its not my habit. So, when I received the money from teller I went straight to our station. When the manager count the money its short of less than $100 equivalent from our Philippine peso. So I went back to the and talked to the bank teller. "Hello, can I see again our check?" Hoping the amount in the check is the amount given to me. "Yes sir." She smiled at me while handing the check. "Why?" I see there's discrepancy from the amount in the check and the cash money given to me. "Can you see if the amount given to me is lesser?" I told her. "How much sir?" I told her the amount. "Its just okay if I balance?" I told her yes. So she went to balance her money without asking the cash money she already handed me awhile ago. 3 minutes. She smiled at me. "I'm sorry sir." Handing to me the lacking money. I smiled back "its okay I understand."

there are some news on FB about certain people who 'drop' bills in their bags then tell the cashier that the change is not right. oh, even women do that and they seem to be proud of themselves. it is good the lady handed the right change to you.
You were lucky there. The rule is, 'once you walk away from the counter, you can't cry foul!' Quite a few have complained, and none managed to get back the missing money. (It almost happened to me once, but I counted right in front of that teller, and he promptly gave me back the 100 dollars note he had discreetly sneaked off before.)
That's why I am glad at my bank they also count the money back to me as they are handing it. That way we both know we aren't short. I think all banks should do that. I'm glad she gave you the money without question, most banks wouldn't do that
