Are You Shortchanged?


I went to Keels the other morning and bought a RedBull to help me work out. I should have gotten 205 Rupees back from the cashier. She gave me 204 because she didn’t have a 5 rupee coin. So Keels made an extra rupee off that sale. I’d say just about every chain grocery story does that; they shortchange me, unless I give them the exact amount.
I didn’t complain as I was in a hurry to get to the gym. But I should have demanded my correct change. It’s only 1 rupee, you say. But how many people go through the cashier’s line each and every day? One rupee here, another there and it adds up to quite a large amount each year!
Has that happened to you?
I say watch your change and don’t let the big guys get away with robbery!
