    Should have taken the money?

    I was selling back a book to the book store this morning and the computer rang it up as $75.50 buyback price. The guy at the counter started giving me money back, got to $25, then gave me a $100 bill ontop of it (this is $50 too much... I assume he thought the $100 was a $50 bill). I immediately caught it and said "this is too much," while sliding the $100 back to him. The guy was shocked and gratefully said "thank you!"

    I called my girlfriend to tell her about it because we have this thing where we share our "good deeds of the day" and she kind of bitched me out asking me "why would you do something like that?!" And I know my parents would have said the same thing... "if it's their mistake, it's okay."

    What do you guys feel about this type of situation?

    Also, not that it's that relevant, but I am also broke right now and my girlfriend knows this. (I'm broke because of spending too much on her by the way)

    Props. I would've done the same. I honestly couldn't care less about the assraping bookstores losing the $50, but the person behind the counter may get in trouble for it.

    Your integrity isn't worth $90 is it?

    Good decision.

    Should have kept the money and bought some crank with it.

    if you hadn't given it back you'd have been literally taking it from his pocket. he'd have lost hours of pay for his mistake.

    In your scenario you did the right thing. Had the computer rung it up wrong, you should have taken the money and given it to charity, those fuckwads ass-rape you by giving you 50% of the value of the book and sell it for 80%. The bookstore, not the charity, but I imagine there is a lot of ass-raping going on at charities as well.
    If sense were common, everyone would have it.

    I probably would have had a panic attack and ate the money.

    Having been a cashier before I would have given the money back, but at Walmart sometimes it's so busy a cashier will sometimes think they swiped something but they didn't if I catch it on the receipt I never go back to get them to charge for it because no one will ever no and they really don't want to have to ring up another transaction....

    I realize, after further evaluation, your girlfriend needs a slap across the forehead with a cock.

    Preferably mine, but whatever.
