I want to be very careful when I introduce this topic - I do not want to inflame any cafe or bakery owners.
And this is a very inexact and unscientific observation.
So here goes. Brace yourself.
More often, I seem to be catching staff at some of the local cafes and bakeries "short changing" me by a consistent 1 dollar.
Not 2$ or 50 cents - but 1 dollar. Always.
This has happened to me 3 times in the last month.
Today, when it happened again, I called the staffer on it.
They happily gave me the dollar that was skipped and
even said... "I thought I did not give you the right change..."
I was courteous about it and although I was thinking to myself: "If you thought about it, why did you not mention it til you were handing my purchase and I would be heading out the door?"
Did not say it though.
Help me out here folks.
Are you seeing the same thing?
If you want to name names, do not do it here - send me an e-mail.
Casual observations are welcomed here - but do not point fingers at individual businesses.
