      I would like to share with you what happened at Fred meyers Saturday
      to me. They had corn on sale 10 ears for a dollar, unlimited amounts.
      Here in the state of Oregon OSHEA has ruled that checkers can not take
      the groceries out of the cart and and ring them up. so we customers
      mus ttake them out and put them on the revoling belt counter.

      when you
      are doing this ,if your order is big. You can not see what they are
      ring up until you have it all on the belt counter.
      I had a very small amount of items just big and bulky. Two cases of
      corn on the cob..48 ears per case.

      5 gallons chocolate milk 5 for
      $10.00 . So far this is $19.60, A Nancy’s yoghurt 4 pounds for $3.49.
      That would be $23.09 . Rick bought chips with his money but it was
      placed on my order.So that should have been $25.08.

      i was keeping a
      running tab in my head as few things are more embrassing than going
      through line and not having enough money to pay for your groceries. I
      had figured our would be about $25.00 plus a few cents. It was more
      than that but still under $26.00 .

      I thought I mus thave
      miscaluclated. I asked for help out and while waiting she yells out I
      didnot ring up two cases of corn…just one, in a tone tha
      tinsinuated I was trying not to pay for one. I quicky said yes you
      did and took my receipt over and found out indeed she had charged me
      for one at 4 ears for a dollar that is 150 percent more than the
      advertized price.

      I was charged more for one case than what I should
      have paid for two. Do you think she would have aplogized..heck no. I
      had to get a PIC to come and correct the bill.

      All th epeople buying
      what they thought was 10 for a dollar corn were actually paying full
      price $4 for$1.00, a whopping 150% more I had told the checker when
      going through the line that there were two cases of corn but she
      started talikng to another employee about breaks and mus thave missed
      it. When th ePIC came over he was very nice and took me over to
      another line..the checker yells she has two cases of corn like I was
      trying to rip off the store, when it was her lack of paying attention
      to what she was doing that caused the errors. I am very,very,good
      about telling the clerks if they for get to charge me for smething.
      For example, one of the or clerks charged me $5.00 instead of ten for
      two cases of potatoes once and I told him.
      When Freddy opens up I am going to call the head manager and have a
      talk about this week end.

      Meat prices and the checker .
      I find over rings at stores way too often. Please check your receipts
      while still in the store if possible. Take a calculator and ring in
      your purchases as you shop, then if you go through line you will know
      what you should me paying.

      I do better with my head than with a
      calculator.
      I have always been that way.
      always be very proud of yourself to me a good consumer and check
      prices ads etc. Do not let stores take advantage of you whether
      intentionalor unintentionally .Good shopping skills are a blessing to
      be thankful for.
      Never be the duped, alot of people do not say anything for fear of
      looking cheap…it is not cheap…it is being a good steward of your
      money and be treated fairly. God wants you to be treated justly.
      A good 20 percent of my receipts have errors on them.

      A lot I catch in
      line a lot I do not.

      Do you check all your receipts?

      You need to check your receipts from any and every store. the mistake on it may be an honest mistake but it still needs to be pointed out. thanks for the tip.
