Yesterday, I did all of my food-shopping for the week. And since my husband and I rarely eat out, it was a pretty large haul. (After all, groceries are typically always cheaper than a meal at a restaurant.) So it wasn’t until I had left the store that I ran my eyes over the receipt. Everything seemed to match up with the items in my trunk—except for a charge of $7.50 for “Mango Tangerine.”
I have no idea what “Mango Tangerine” is, but I do know that I didn’t buy any mangoes and I didn’t buy any tangerines. Maybe that’s what pears are called nowadays? I did buy four of them.
Clearly I was charged for something that I didn’t purchase. I know that I should have gone back in the supermarket to dispute the charge and get my $7.50 back, but it was really cold outside, and I was in a rush to get home. But the costly experience got me thinking how many people actually check their receipt before leaving a store? Let me know in the poll below, and add any explanations in the comments.
