We Have The Receipt; in Fact, We Have Two! Informative - Even the Smallest of Receipts is Important
MOBILE, ALABAMA -- Checking online yesterday to see what items had posted at my credit union, I found that we had been charged $82 for an $8 purchase at a local fruit stand. Uh oh.
Credit union said that $82 was the correct amount according to their paperwork. Called the fruit stand and they were nice, but clearly needed a receipt. Well, it was a debit card... maybe hubby signed for $82 of fruit. We're both bad about just signing and not paying too much attention to the amounts at times.
After much searching and a sense of, "we're going to end up eating this mistake" all day, the receipts (2 of them!) were located in his jeans down in the wash. One receipt is from the cash register, one is from the debit scan. Yay!
This is just the sort of receipt that I routinely throw away as soon as I get to the house. I HATE to admit it, but these days you have to hang on to every little bit of paperwork!
