watching the cashier scan your groceries will save you money
Even despite the
latest scanning technology at your local grocery store, cashier
errors are still extremely common and more often than not
they will be in the store's favor and not yours. This is because
it is extremely easy for cashiers to inadvertently double
scan an item or type in a wrong produce code for a similar
item that unfortunately costs slightly more than the one you
Make a point of
standing and watching the cashier she scans in your items.
It is much easier to get your corrections done right at the
time when she has your groceries sitting in front of her than
once you have left the store or even after you have paid but
haven't yet left the cashier. Once you have already paid and
left the store, it is extremely difficult to prove that you
only had four of an item that you are charged for six of.
Likewise, if you purchase the most inexpensive apples and
the cashier accidentally charged you for the organic ones,
once you have left the store it is much more difficult to
prove which apples you really had in the bag.
While some grocery
stores have a "the customer is always right" policy
others stand behind the policy of what you left the store
is your problem.
