Yes i should have given the money back, i kno its wrong to take that extra money, but doesnt mistake happen???(But then why did super pet make so many mistakes???it couldnt have been the same person) My first mistake taking the money, she also made a mistake by giving me the money. Now that hearing from you people made me change my mind and if it happens again, i will be honest, and tell the clerk she/he made a mistake.....you made me realize that....and i wanna thank you, i didnt think about the person losing the job...Im just 14 what am i suppose to know, but as i grow up i learn my mistakes, and plus this has only happened once...(well to me) But does $20 bucks really make a difference in the company(i kno it puts the clerk at risk) but 20 bucks......100 bucks i can understand but thats a different story

to answer the first question, i would absolutely give the money back. i have a very strong conscience...no matter how dumb the mistake, i could never keep the money. I'm a HUGE believer in Karma.

i'm glad that you've changed your mind about it, but hey, actions are stronger than words. Next time, huh?

It's good that you changed your mind and will do the right thing in the future. Theres just one thing I don't get...

Quote:
would you give the $100 back??? in my opinion i wouldnt, if they made the mistake then its really there fault not mine, but it is wrong to take more money then you should
But.... huh? Isn't that like a total contradiction in terms?

I'm glad you saw your mistake though, and will correct it next time.

All I was pointing out was that an avarage retail person there makes probably $8.00 or so an hour and i know for a face that when cashiers are short it comes out of THEIR pay so they have just worked almost 3 hours for a mistake that could have been fixed just by being honest, I know i have worked in retail and made mistakes where it was entirly my fault and have paid for it as well and you know it sucked and if you are the type of person that says your mistake your problem I will say that is exactally what is wrong with this world today.
Thanks for your time.

I think if it's a few dollars (10-20$) then I would probably keep it. It would only be put into either gas or food for the animals anyways. But it if was something like 100$ I would probably point it out. But it is their fault, they should be paying attention to the cash register.

I would point out the mistake . One time at an ATM a woman left a twenty at the machine and I ran out and found her becfore she got into her car and gave it to her. She was grateful and it was nice to make someone's day.

When I was younger and worked at a gas station, any shortages were deducted off my pay and that my friends is not a nice feeling:|

If you think that it's ok to take the cash then it's ok for others to take the cash from you when you're in that position. Think about it, wouldn't you like some one to tell you when you screwed up and gave them too much $? You'd go back if she short changed you.

this can be a big debate....but in my opinon i think it is the right to do, by showing them the mistake, like lisa said, would u want someone, to not tell you that you lost 20 bucks???etc, but i have learned from this theard...but i dont work so i have no clue how it works if you made a mistake. If if it puts your job on the line then thats a different story thanks

The idea that someone else might screw you for the money is not the point.

Wouldn't you like to be a better person than someone like that? I mean everyone complains about what a rotten world we have and yet when it comes right down to it they act the same. Maybe there's no tangible reward for doing something like giving back 20$. I felt good on the times that I did something nice for someone for no reason so you do things your way and I'll do it mine.

Well meow as to only being 14 i can understand how you would think it was cool to have the extra money, and think its great that now you see the difference and you know what when you start at your first job i hope that when you make a mistake with someones change or something to that effect they point it out
but question is you say you have a credit there or something like that are you gona tell them about the mistake is the question
Cheers Kim

Yikes! Such commotion here For me, fee money is geat, but not at someone else's expense. If they can make the mistake of giving back too much, then they could also make the mistake of charging too much as well. No one would complain about the extra cash, but I'll bet you would complain 10 times over if you were charged more than you should be. Gotta think the whole thing through here. Honestly is the best policy no matter who you are or the situation at hand. In the long run you'd be best off telling these cashiers that they are horrible at their jobs and need to re-take math! lol Though accidents do happen, even to the best of us.
