    I would agree. I tend to have issues when I'm not charged for something that I requested and got.

    However; if I made any attempt to resolve it at the time, if they were in any way inconsiderate at the time... then I would feel no remorse just forgetting about it. It's not your responsibility to ensure they do their job - especially after telling them how to do it, or if they are failing to your job.

    In short, your moral obligation is dependent how much you are responsible for the issue. You didn't cause the problem and after you attempted to resolve it. That combined with the original responsibility being with them... you are most certainly not obligated to instill a cost upon yourself for their benefit.

Personally, I'd feel rotten knowing that I'd indirectly stolen from other people. Furthermore, the the owners of the store shouldn't pay for the mistake of an irresponsible check out girl. IMHO, from what you describe, she should actually be fired for this. You, (a customer) WARNED her and she refused to go through the little trouble of double checking.

    You appear to have a very limited vocabulary and lack the ability to identify the correct responses for a variety of different questions. A deficient vocabulary can hinder you in many ways; you may struggle to find the correct words when speaking, fail to understand what others are communicating to you, or come across as inarticulate to others.

    She sounds like a right pain since you were trying to do the right thing. Mail them a copy of the receipt...and a check for ummm $6.58 (minus the price of the stamp . Hopefully the receipt will have the cashiers id on it and they'll give her a go for not being more careful. However with gas at almost $3.00 a gallon there is NO way I would drive back and hand them the money. Give a call...drop a letter in the post.

    Or you could call the manager and ask them what they would like you to do. If I were the manager, I'd let it slide and show appreciation for the honesty. Possibly even sending the customer a coupon or something. From the manager's standpoint I would feel badly that the mistake caused the customer hassle or energy. If I made the mistake of undercharging, and insisted I hadn't, I would also never go back on that word to a customer, but give them the benefit. When in conflict or doubt it is generally better to have the customer feel appreciated and receiving the benefit. You don't want them leaving your store remembering some hassle and misunderstanding, you want them leaving feeling appreciated and like they benefited with a good deal.

    Hmmm. We sure squeezed out a lot of analysis and drama, out of one little careless oversight by a check-out clerk.

    Wait until we get a major problem to solve for you, Wolf -- we might be here for a few days.

    I think you are INTJ, which is why your post annoyed me. It was either playing to the NF crowd, or manipulative. Possibly both.

    As for the NFs, it seems they enjoy being manipulated.

    I don't even think that this question can be classified as a "dilemma." It's that insignificant.

    Eh. Wolf isn't really a manipulative person. I think he honestly feels bad about getting away with something that wasn't even his fault.

    Since when do INTJs feel guilty about that?

    It's not even that he feels guilty, but that he made a thread about it. For what purpose? To get the NFs to comment.

    Heh. I'm acting like I know wolf, but he doesn't seem to have an agenda. He's probably just a really honest person and looks at the rest of us dishonest liars with disdain.

    Guilt though? Someone else makes a mistake, which he tried to prevent, not his fault. Life goes on.
