Overcharged at Fruitadona, 83-10 37th
« on: January 14, 2020, 07:21:15 PM »
This afternoon, was charged $2.99 for large cantaloupe that was prominently marked in two bins in the store $2.50.  Realizing this after I left and thought to check the receipt (which I always ask for even though paying in cash), I returned to show it to her and ask for a refund.  Without a word, the cashier gave me the coins, offering neither explanation nor apology.  Does that mean, 'oh well, I didn't get away with the overcharge this time'?

I shop there and have never been overcharged, as far as I know. Recently they have been making a lot of improvements to the store, carrying more products and the cashier is always nice -- so I'm a fan.

Sorry to hear about your experience. It's always good to stay vigilant.

Maybe it means she made an honest mistake. Maybe the price changed today. Maybe she was having a rough day. Maybe her commute was awful. Maybe one of her kids is sick.

Let's not jump to conclusions.

I know folks don't like the sidewalk peddlers but I think they're cool.

They remind me of being in a Middle Eastern bazaar.

or the NYC of the "good old days" -- from the 19th century through the 1970s.

i agree whole-heartedly. they add life to an increasingly sterile, lifeless city.

So, just to be clear, you were overcharged by 49 cents and immediately issued a refund, but because the cashier wasn't apologetic enough to your liking you've decided to take your grievance public?
