An interesting thing happened to me recently when I dropped by the local Whole Paychex. During the summer, I often buy a bunch or two of fresh mint to make my fave watermelon salad. On this trip, I threw a small bunch of mint into the basket along with a host of other goodies. When it comes to checking out, I don’t know about you but when I put things on the belt, I keep an eye on the screen to make sure everything comes through correctly. Well, this day I did not and happened to notice a big oops when I looked at the screen towards the end – namely in the tune of over $14k!
Frankly, I bought ONE bunch of mint – not 4915 bunches. What do I look like – a buyer for the Food Network (tho – I would LOVE to see what their grocery bills look like – yowza!)
Lesson learned: ALWAYS check the receipt (or grocery scanner screens!)
