The grocery store overcharge my mom

My mom went to grocery shopping at one of the closed by stores she went to regularly yesterday. She didn't bring her far - side glasses with her, she can't read the receipt very well. But the charge they charge her was very suspicious to her, since she tried to do a mental calculation of all the items she bought. She is old, so she wasn't exactly sure how much they overcharge her. Later today, she show me the receipt, and it wasn't match the items she purchased yesterday, it was totally someone else receipt I guess. What a huge mistakes, but they only overcharge my mom $5.00 extra. But with that mistake, she already gone mad, and wanna call up the store manager to file a complaint against that cashier who scan her items. I told her to let go of it, and simply tell the manager about this incident next we visited. Although it is a small mistake, some people really want to do saving on their budget, I just hope those store cashiers watch out what they do, and do not chat while serving the customers, easily make huge mistakes.

I have noticed that at the super market near me, they have kids working there, and they are just going through the motions. I remember when I was a kid, most of the cashiers were basically women and older women. They were always nice. Now you never know what you're going to get. And believe me, they all make mistakes. These days you do have to watch every single item you purchase.

hi kingparker I had a really freakish incident. I was given back too much change a twenty dollar bill too much. but the checker got really mad at me and told me she never made errors. it was really busy and the ine behind me was growing,.the man in back of me growled"maman just take the money for Gs sakes, my legs are killing me." so I took the money and left. I can just imagine the manager having a fit when her ill was short twenty dollars.
