And yet again!

YP1000042Is it me? Do I have some kind of magnetic attraction for pricing errors? Obviously, that’s not possible. Obviously I’m very vigilant. I’m left with the conclusion that mis-pricing, mis-scanning, ripoffs are rife.

Yesterday I bought a six pack of beer stubbies. I kept my receipt. When I got home and put them in the fridge, I found there were only five in the pack. One was missing. But I’d been charged the full $25 as if there were six.

My mistake for not checking that the pack was intact, but now I remember the checkout guy saying the word five, but I didn’t hear him properly and was too busy finding my card. If he saw there were only five and said so, why did he charge me the full amount?

So now I have to go back and complain yet again. I’m tired of this. Always take your receipt! We are being ripped off.

    I was curious if you ever thought of changing the layout of your blog?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to
    say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.

    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

    Well, thank you very much for this comment. I’m very pleased that you like my writing and I’m encouraged to do better. The only thing is that I spend a lot of time on each post and I don’t want to spend too much more, but maybe I should. I’m kinda busy these days (ah, retirement!) but I’m about to set off on a four day trip north of here (Perth) to Kalbarri, a trip full of photo opportunities. Watch this space. Thanks again.
