I know I shouldn’t get so ruffled about little things, but it seems like it is the little things that snowball into bigger deals.
So I am ticked off about the price of pears… no… not the price of pears… what I have been CHARGED for pears. Twice now I have purchased pears at TWO different grocery stores. Both times, I specifically bought the pears that were on sale. And both times, I got home, read my receipt, and discovered that I had been charged for a different type (and more expensive pears). Of course, by the time I’m home, it seems ridiculous to try to correct it since to return the merchandise would cost me about $6 in gas…. so I just grit my teeth.
I know, I know. It’s not a lot of money. Between the two grocery stores, I’ve lost about $1. And shame on me for not checking the receipt today when I’d already gotten burned once on it.
But it does make you think, doesn’t it? I mean, what ELSE is costing us more than it should?
From now on I guess I should check my receipts more carefully.
