Today my wife and I went to a grocery store of a well-known red chain. We go there often because the prices are reasonable, and the store itself is clean. We collected all sorts of things. The wife grabbed a piece of carbonate for the preparation of the salad.
She had already bought it before, but he did not live to see the salad, being consumed by me in the form of sandwiches. Means bought products, came home. While my wife was spinning, I laid everything out of the packages, and my wife, having come, began to study the check. She always does that. I hear swearing words: yes so that I … yes for that kind of money … yes not in life … and so on.
Having found out the reason for the indignation, I was unpleasantly surprised. It turns out that the same piece of carbonate cost more than five hundred rubles, but not everything is so simple. It turns out that we bought not 608 grams (see photo 1), but as much as 1198 (see photo 2). The wife assures that she looked at the price tag before taking the meat. And now we carefully look at photo 1. And the barcode is re-glued. And you can't read it right away on the spot !!! The list of purchased goods converges. And how many of which you bought and do not remember.
A classic of the genre … I myself used to be an employee of trade and a re-glued barcode always helped a careless seller in case of mis-grading. Although there is probably a shortage here. Some pork in the department or in the warehouse has eaten up pork for an unclear amount and is now trying to cover up the eaten shortage in this way.
Having consumed a little white and it seems tomorrow I will go to sort it out, because the meat has not yet been unpacked and there is a check. Cheating rubles at least 250. It is not so much a pity for money as the principle takes for the soul.
By the way, it will be said that an incident with my participation has already taken place in this store. A bottle of whiskey was purchased, and the difference between the price tag and the check was as much as 500 rubles. I couldn’t show the store anything, because at the moment I discovered the difference with the check, the whiskey was already partially in me. There was not much to show for the store.
Be vigilant and always keep receipts.
